The Complete Recordings (The Centennial
May 8, 2011, marks the 100th birthday of Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson, who, according to legend, sold his soul down at the crossroads of Highway 61 and Highway 49 in a midnight bargain that has haunted the music world for three-quarters of a century. The deal brought forth Johnson s incandescent guitar technique and a run of 10-inch 78 rpm singles for the Vocalion, Oriole, Conqueror and Perfect labels recorded in San Antonio in 1936 and Dallas in 1937. Those songs have become a cornerstone of Columbia Records identity, and will be celebrated on two CENTENNIAL releases from Columbia/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION double-disc set shares the same genealogy as 1990 s Robert Johnson - The Complete Recordings, but that package has now been updated for a new generation. The set includes a new essay by Ted Gioia alongside a new biography of Robert Johnson written by Stephen C. LaVere (completely different from his essay in the 1990 version). Also included are new illustrations, photo images, and a family tree of music originating from Robert Johnson.

The Centennial Collection
Billie Holiday's distinctive and groundbreaking vocal approach changed the face of jazz, soul and pop music in the 20th century. Now, on the eve of her 100th birthday (April 7, 1915), Billie Holiday: The Centennial Collection will offer the definitive single-disc chronicle of her career.In her brief but pivotal career, Holiday changed the landscape of jazz vocals by breaking free of the standard "reading" of the songs she would perform on stage and in studio. "I don't think I'm singing," she once said of her delivery. "I feel like I'm playing a horn...What comes out is what I feel." Her unique, emotive voice and idiosyncratic delivery which often altered the familiar rhythm and meter of the standards she sang early in her career planted the seeds for virtually every major female popular singer of the 20th century and beyond.A fixture of the New York nightclub scene throughout the 1930s, Holiday would collaborate with such luminaries of jazz as Benny Goodman, Count Basie and Lester Young (who would bestow upon Holiday her famous nickname, "Lady Day"). Her irascible, unpredictable style and fiery offstage rapport with musicians and bandleaders meant she rarely stayed in one place twice, cutting singles for Columbia, Brunswick and Vocalion including "What A Little Moonlight Can Do,"...
