Storyline

SATAN & ADAM chronicles the unlikely pairing of legendary one-man-band Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee and harmonica master Adam Gussow. Shot over 20 years, the film showcases one of the greatest blues duos you probably never got a chance to see. Magee and Gussow came together on the streets of Harlem in the 1980s, a time when race relations in New York City were at an all-time low. From completely different worlds, these two musicians forged a lifelong relationship that showcases the unifying power of music.

A great untold blues story
3 July 2019 | by paul-96189See all my reviews

Deserves more reviews here. Inspired me to write my first IMDB review.

A must watch for blues fans and/or anyone interested in New York City history. I consider myself both. Shows the ups and downs of life as a blues musician, in particular during the fallow period of the eighties when the music was cast aside.
