I just listened to some of Robert Johnson's songs played by Robert Lockwood, Jr. He considered Johnson his stepfather and surely wanted to emulate him. His versions are almost the same speed as the slowed-down Johnson recordings, just slightly faster. The slowed-down versions sound much closer to both Son House and Robert Lockwood, Jr.
