Skip James estimated that he recorded 26 sides for the Paramount label in 1931, but no one has ever turned up more than the 18 songs on this disc in any form. This was the first comprehensive collection of James' early music, showcasing his piano playing as well as his skills with a guitar, and was essential listening in the 1980s. However, the collection was only partly successful on a technical level. Paramount had been notorious for using the poorest and cheapest materials in its pressings and later junked its masters.

Complete 1931 Session. Skip James Format: Audio Cassette. It's 180 gram and sounds as good as a record full of scratchy acetates from 1931 could ever sound. He "came back" in the early 60s during the folk revival. Those recordings sound better, but, the performances are not nearly as great as these earlier versions are. So look for the 1931 versions (sometimes referred to as the 1930 versions; I'm not sure which year is correct)

Most of the songs were first released on 78rpm records in 1937. The Complete Recordings contains every recording Johnson is known to have made, with the exception of an alternate take of "Travelling Riverside Blues".

Can anyone who's heard this comment on whether it's from the same master as either the 1986 LP or the 1994 CD, or alternatively from the subsequent remasters that appeared on Skip James - Hard Time Killin' Floor?
