Robert Johnson, Mythmaking, and Contemporary American Culture

Dublin Core

Description

Robert Johnson recorded a total of 29 songs in the 1930s. Though he died in 1938, he did not become popular until the 1960s, when some of his songs were released in the album King of the Delta Blues Singers. A popular legend is that Johnson sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his musical talent.
