More Blues For The Building Where Robert Johnson Recorded.

Over on Unfair Park this morning, Robert has the details on what looks to be the final nail in the coffin for the building 508 Park Ave.

Which would be no big deal, except that some dude named Robert Johnson apparently recorded some music there or something? Or so Robert's told us--on more than a few occasions--while (in our minds, at least) rightfully dictating the historical importance of the building and detailing the battle to keep it from gettin' wrecked.

Sad news, indeed.
