Summary
For decades little was known about Robert Johnson. Legend was rife with supernatural accounts of his life, his pact with the devil, and conflicting versions of his death. The Search For Robert Johnson traces the path of this most legendary of Bluesmen, a figure whose blues influenced the development of popular music in the US and UK, but whose life story was shrouded in mystery. Narrator John Hammond steers through the travelogue as he re-enacts the work of the original researchers.
