Sweet Home Chicago

Johnny Shines

Playing Robert Johnson

Johnny Shines plays “Sweet Home Chicago” with astounding precision and clarity during a 1970s appearance on public television. The popular blues standard was first recorded and is credited to have been written by Robert Johnson. Over the years the song has become one of the most popular anthems for the city of Chicago. It was a chance meeting with Robert Johnson that influenced Shines’ return to music after a period of inactivity during the mid-1930s.
