November 23, 1936.
75 years ago today was a landmark day in recorded music history. Robert Johnson recorded eight songs, including his seminal "Crossroads", in wax at the Gunther Hotel in San Antonio, TX. At the same time, a 60 year old Pablo Casals recorded two of Bach's Cello Suites at the Abbey Road Studio in London, establishing him as one of the finest musicians ever.
