    Ever been to Clarksville, Mississippi?

    Who knows what happened there some many years ago?

    Was it Clarksville, or Clarksdale? I really don't know, I've seen both.

    But yes, Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads.

    I had a complete set of his recordings. Some were hard to understand.
    Some were quite good.

    Been forever since I've seen that movie.

    Curious question: Who thinks he actually sold his soul for the blues? He was
    the best...
