About This Item

London: Secker & Warburg, 1992. Hb, 83pp, b/w photos. Good in a VG dj. Some speckles along top edge of page block, slight tanning to edge of page block, contents clean. Discusses the life and legend of the great Mississippi blues guitarist and singer, Robert Johnson ( 1911-1938).. Hard Cover. Good/Very Good.

Synopsis

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.
