This is a great documentary on the life of Robert Johnson
22 December 2001 | by (Dallas, Deep in the Heart of Texas) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this. I am a big fan of RJ, Muddy Waters and the Blues in general. It gave some good in-site into his life and death. There have been so many rumors about RJ and this put some of the myth to rest by separating fact and fiction. I knew there was a Robert Johnson, Jr. who got a settlement from the estate of RJ. There was also a stepson, who gave some great input into his life. The Blues researchers and musicians who focused on his music were great to listen to also. I sincerely recommend it for any Blues enthusiast.
