Robert Johnson - "Preaching Blues" (85% speed as he was meant to be heard)

Robert Johnson's recordings were apparently sped up
past their original speed, raising the pitch as well.
Many listeners may have been listening to him
at the incorrect pitch and speed.
Listen for yourself.

I personally think that this song sounds more natural
at this pitch, and much bluesier
giving a lot of credit to the story.
