I agree, Sessions for Robert J. is better. I mean, come on, you can see Clapton play the hell out of Robert Johnson's songs. What could be better (besides seeing Johnson himself, anyway).

i have the album and it's ok.

i wish Clapton would have recorded all the songs on an acoustic guitar after all, the songs were originally all acoustic.

Thats what "Sessions for Robert Johnson" is.

I don't know-I liked "Me and Mr Johnson" but I felt it was a little overproduced.
