Trivia

Robert Johnson was a young, and by all accounts untalented, boy who, in the early 1920s when he was in his late teens, would hang around bars listening to the Blues musicians of the day. He dreamed of being able to play like them. From accounts of his contemporaries, he disappeared for a few months and when he resurfaced he could play Blues better than everyone. He shot to fame almost over night. His music does feature many occult references, and the legend grew that he had sold his soul to the devil in return for talent and fame. He died at 27, under mysterious circumstances. There are several different accounts of his death, and he left behind at least three women claiming to be his widow. It is unknown if or where he was buried. To this day he remains an artistic legend, and those who remembered him maintained till they died that they had never seen anything like him before or since.

Goofs

The picture of the black dog that Dean comments on is actually that of Fenrir, a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology, not a hell hound. His destructive powers were so feared that the gods had no choice but to imprison him. Also in the picture is the god Tyr, a deity noted for his courage and strength. See more »

A Great Tribute to Fans of Blues
2 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In August of 1938, a blues singer is chased by invisible hounds in Greenwood, Mississippi. Eight years before, Robert Johnson had made a deal with the devil in a crossroad in Rosedale. In the present days, after the death of an architect and a surgeon successful in their careers that had claimed to be haunted by hell hounds, Dean and Sam investigate and find that ten years ago they had made a deal with a demon in a bar to have success in their lives together with a third man. Their further investigation leads them to Evan, the third man that exchanged his soul to save his beloved wife that was dying with cancer. While Sam protects Evan from the invisible hounds, Dean summons the demon in the crossroad to trap and exorcise him. However, the demon tries to tempt Dean offering the life of his father that is suffering in hell.

"Crossroad Blues" is another great episode of this excellent Second Season of Supernatural. The story is based on the legend that Robert Johnson made a deal in a crossroad with the devil in the 30's and a wonderful tribute to fans of blues. The smart demon unravels the painful feelings that Dean has had since the death of his father, increasing his pain and doubts about the suffering of John Winchester in hell. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Blues da Encruzilhada" ("The Crossroad Blues")
