13 March 2018
  • Blues
  • Melancholy
  • Soulful
  • Laid-Back

The romanticized image of a blues musician: a young ambitious musician meets the devil on a dusty crossroad to sell his soul in exchange for mastery of the blues. This cliché stems from a legend surrounding the extremely talented and influential Robert Johnson. A mysterious blues master who’s poorly documented life ended at the young age of 27, leaving the world with a handful of recordings that shaped music of the 20th century in quite a significant way. While he was not all too famous during his lifetime, his posthumous influence is unparalleled in the genre. Countless blues and rock musicians have covered his songs and cited him as a major influence. This episode is dedicated to possibly the most important blues musician that ever lived.
