Robert Johnson – “Malted Milk” (mp3)

Recorded during the height of Robert’s popularity in the South, many fans see this as a tribute to Robert’s name sake, Lonnie Johnson. Distress, distraction, and degradation has put Robert Johnson on a short leash as we hear the melancholic fable of him getting inebriated on malted milk, his only escape. A beautiful expression of the human condition.
