His voice can leap to a falsetto, drop to a growl, mellow into a seductive croon: "You better come on in my kitchen, 'cause it's bound to be rainin' outdoors." You can hear modern blues and rock 'n' roll being born. Johnson sounds so vivid, so alive, it's hard to believe he's gone at all much less -dead almost 50 years. He sang: "You can bury my body down by the highway side, "So my old evil spirit can catch a Greyhound bus and ride." Who knows? Maybe he's passing through town right now. '
