Robert Johnson has long been viewed as a mysterious, tortured artist who composed dark poetic lyrics, sold his soul to the devil at the "crossroads," and was tragically murdered at a young age. Though his works bears comparison to that of his predecessors and contemporaries (guitarists and pianists alike), their music was utterly transformed in his hands, creating a world of blues like no other. And that world still contains secrets to be uncovered. Meanwhile, you no hold in your hands the key to the 61 Highway and beyond.
