Robert Johnson, while probably the most influential of all blues guitarists, is also one of the most obscure. Recognized as an influence on musicians like Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones, Johnson was poisoned by a jealous husband in 1938 -- at the age of twenty-seven. This untimely death, his supposed bargain with the devil that enabled him to play guitar, and the ferocity and tormented originality of his work have given rise to a legend that has inspired a Hollywood movie and numerous stories.
Peter Guralnick's extended essay about the life of the man and the myth, and of the place and time that produced both, illuminates much of the obscurity around Johnson without forfeiting any of the mystery.-- Robert Johnson's CD boxed set is now the bestselling boxed set of blues music; his life and art continues to draw interest.-- Johnson is recognized as an influence on such rock icons as Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones.-- An intriguing mystery surrounds Johnson's life and death that music fans find fascinating.
