Changing recording speeds has been done lots. In more recent times, Jimmy Page says he recorded Led Zep's "When The Levee Breaks" in Open G but it was slowed down to F in production to "fatten up the tone." It's been suggested that RJ's recordings were run slow to pep up the tempo.

Hammond plays one of Robert's records, Love in Vain, to Willie Mae Powell, for whom it was written. She had never heard it before, she recognises his voice instantly and a very moving scene is recorded for posterity. Had the recording been at the wrong speed, she would probably not have been able to recognise his voice - not instantly and with such ease, anyway.
Apart from this, how come Johnny Shines and others who knew Robert never gave any indication that the recordings are too fast? Honeyboy is still with us, and he's never said so either.
If you were to re-brand Corn Flakes with Robert Johnson's name on the box, millions of blues fans would buy them, even if they'd always preferred Weetabix.

I'm not sure I buy the theory. Maybe one day we'll know.
