"But bruins was all about a big life. He opened the doors for blues. Men The tour in Europe. He got critical praise and standing ovations over there and got other people to come over, and and in that became a regular trip over for people like Sonny Terry and Brownie mcghee, and Pete Seagram and Muddy, and all the gang from Chess John Lennon of the Beatles also cited Brune Z. as an early influence, but he recorded two hundred twenty four songs in a fifteen year career and And that's a pretty pretty amazing output for that time next up on our hit parade. Is Albert Hunter you remember her? We talked to her about the foundation of Women in rock and roll did her career thought it was over right and became a nurse and worked as a nurse for years before resuming her career in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven, it just one of those one of those names that comes up again and along with Bessie Smith, she was gay or bisexual. And that was taboo in those days, and it caused a lot of personal problems that caused her to shy away from the spotlight. Again I think what's most impressive about Alberta's the fact that she was able to take the money that she made from her work save it up, being able to put enough away to pay for an education become a nurse. Nurse and then do what she wanted to do until she and she probably sang, lot went to church, saying did all of that and continue to sink throughout her life, she got back into it, and then she got back into it and just fine-tuned chops again our next person that we want to talk about here. We don't have a birthday for Charlie pack. He died April eighth nineteen. Thirty, four Delta, blues was his thing hundreds. Yeah, I would definitely, and they're just not sure when seventies.

He was part African American and part. We think we were talking about it. We think Cherokee Cherokee. We definitely looks. They said they weren't sure if his ancestry included Mexican. American or Cherokee American. The native indigenous to the land, he his ability to throw his voice. We talked about the power, the voice gain from maybe singing in church that he influenced largely people like Howling Wolf, and with his Hollarin' kind of sound. You know he was a big influence to Jimi Hendrix to with his guitar play, and he was the guy who played behind his back, and all that stuff. That's right. That's right then we get back to the Mississippi's. There were two guys who went by the name. Mississippi John Hurt who was born in eighteen, ninety three self taught worked as a sharecropper started playing dances and parties like so many guys did any integrate finger picking style? The people loved. Made sides for Okay Records Division of Columbia and the twenties nothing really worked out for him as far as like having a big hit record that he could you know by the farm with the money or anything like that? They located him in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, three, and they guys, Dick, spotswood and Tom Hoskins, and they want him to move to DC, so they could record them for the library. Congress and sixty four was part of the American folk. Blues Revival where was all tied together and that really helped people to rediscover law? The Blues Man of John Hurts Era He played in the university coffeehouse circuit. He played at folk festivals and. Things like that and it was a real great spokesman for the Delta Blues Recorded Albums for Vanguard Records His songs are also ended up on albums by Dylan. Dave Van Rock Jerry Garcia.

Aspect I always hit assumed that he was shot for his. His his activities so to speak, but no, so he spends three days still trying to do is thank still trying to perform and do his thing probably still drinking, but at least the liquor wasn't poisoned, but he had something that they figure what might have been strychnine and They said so the no op autopsy was done. He was found dead by the side of the road near. Near a farm, probably making his way to the next thing, there was no death certificate no record and they're not even sure where they buried them, and there's markers out there one place, but there could have been any number of places in that area where they bury people that they didn't know who they were especially a black person in America a one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty eight.

What a Great Wealth Transfer Means For the American Economy

"One of the justifications for the current racial protests is that America was once a slave nation and because of that the country including the taxpayers should it give blacks so called reparations has just reported African American billionaire Robert Johnson calling for fourteen trillion dollars in reparations Mr Johnson made history as the country's first black millionaire after selling his B. E. T. network to Viacom in two thousand one Johnson goes on to say quote wealth transfers what's needed think about this since two hundred plus years or so of slavery labour taken with no compensation is a wealth transfer dial in access to education which is a primary driver of accumulation of income and wealth is a wealth transfer the problem with that quote is that there is no denial of education in contemporary America yes there is bad education but that's the fault of politicians not the taxpayer let's look at some stats black Americans comprise about twelve percent of the population thirty eight million people that number includes four million black immigrants from places like Africa and the Caribbean fourteen trillion for the country's thirty eight million African Americans would be three hundred sixty eight thousand four hundred twenty one dollars per person three hundred sixty eight thousand and that kind of reparation payments even spread over years would badly damage America's economy we simply do not have enough tax money to come close to paying that and then there is fairness what about reparations for other groups injured in the past such as native Americans if you read my upcoming book killing Crazy Horse you will vividly see the suffering of the Indians how about the descendants of the three hundred sixty thousand union soldiers killed in the civil war are they entitled to compensation polls say more than sixty percent of Americans reject reparations only about a third support the payments but clearly our country should stop the corruption and design a superior public school

As born in lubbock texas and then my family moved to detroit michigan and then we moved to tulsa oklahoma and then to oklahoma the city and it was in oklahoma city where my older sister michaela she was kind of my entry into music because neither of my parents really listen to music you know there's no no musical instruments in the household no records in the household like sports and we just kind of did what everyone else did which didn't involve a lot of music so when i was eight years old my sister michaela who's about five years my senior. She sent one of those <hes> record cd penny scans where she sent a penny into some magazine they they sent back. All these records kurds so when my sister i've got these records all these like magical things just been brought into the house and i was sifting through all of them amongst those was a third eye blind self titled album along with a whole bunch of other records in you know i remember there is like backstreet. Boys in there was a robin that part i album all the pops was good and i kind of thought that's all music was all music sort of sounded like the backstreet boys or something but i stumbled upon the <hes> the blind record in this pile of of cds take time yeah that was the first time i think i've really heard rock music that was based on guitars and driven and it might we know they're doing.

You know gene it was the first time hearing music out that was very emotional and it was talking about things beyond my imagination unlike suicide or drugs or you know even love you know you don't understand the love of that young of an age but i don't know i just crave. Didn't i couldn't wait to get home at school and just mike listen to. It and i just wanted to put in side my mind at all times all be the funny thinking about now. You know like really craving a third mine record that much but it it really hit me hard in it is the first time that i ever thought i wanted to play these occur living in past interviews. I've said things like oh. It's embarrassing but their their minds the first man ever. I need to get over that. I'm really proud of my heritage. Ticha me that's kevin and more be talking about third eye. Blind's semi charmed life. That's a good distance away from those <hes> influences of lou reed and nina simone. I'll say but that was the song johnson got him hooked on science greg. What do we have on the show next week next week. Jim we have a conversation and performance by the band the mountain goats that was a great session. I can't wait to hear.

"Adored available available wherever books and audio books are sold welcome back to sound opinions. I'm greg kat. He's jim deary goddess and this week we're discussing and celebrating the life life and legacy of robert johnson. His career was relatively short. He died when he was twenty seven years old but he made a major impact on music with his revolutionary qatar style and his revolutionary songwriting one of the first blues men to create a narrative style in his songwriting. We've been sharing some of our favorite interpretations of robert johnson songs and jim. You've got one more for us. I do greg you know. It's always been amazing to me how few hip hop artists sample sample the great blues masters and i remember having this conversation with the pioneering gil scott heron the link between street street corner poetry and what would become hip hop huge influence on that scene and he had thought about it too you know his last album came out in two two thousand ten he died not long thereafter and he had covered robert johnson's me and the devil variously called me me and the devil blues <hes> different different titles of it you know kind of <hes> the quintessential johnson song the hell hound on his trail. He's going to board a greyhound bus and try tried to get away from that devil who allegedly bought his soul at the crossroads in gil scott heron's hands in this version that he did near the end of his life life. I think you can hear in this song. <hes> not only the hell hound dog that is that is haunting him being a metaphor for the devil but i think racism. You know you're a dog. You're dogging me around. People been dogging me all my life that old evil spirit. That's gonna eventually drop me in the ground. I i think it's really really powerful and it lives on. He'll scott herren me and the devil from two thousand it. It is sad you <music> food <music> bad the bad the late great gil scott heron and devon got one more choice right right. I do gym. I always get a shiver when listening to gil scott heron's version of that song <hes> it's just chilling <hes> i wanna play one of <hes> robert johnson's <hes> most iconic songs. That's really saying something <hes> dust my broom. <hes> in robert johnson's telling it was i'll i believe i'll dust my broom and <hes> arguably an even more famous version of that song was later recorded by elmore james elmore james took that <hes> signature triplet guitar riff that robert johnson played on the original song recorded in in the thirties and amped it up amplified it and put that slide guitar on it and that became one of the great all-time rock guitar are risks. Everybody references winning world. What's the beginning of rock and roll. You could look to elmore gina's version of dust. My broom cassandra wilson had some fun with it. Though in two thousand eight cassandra wilson noted jazz vocalist did an entire album of what she call jazz standards and obviously robert johnson spoke to her as a not only a blues guy but as a jazz musician and innovator a guy who could improvise mm provides an intern a small kernel of idea and into an entire new world her version of dust. My broom has nothing to do. In oh so the originals she doesn't do anything with that triplet guitar riff <hes> and it doesn't do anything with the james b. don of rock and roll all guitar ridden either she she sort of expands the song it turns into the simmering mood i think what cassandra's honing in on is that a lot of robert johnson's music as an incredible sense of existentialism about it i mean he is a man contemplating his life being alone doing it just thinking i'm just a speck in this universe you know and i feel it. I feel it in every bone in my body in a lot of his songs are coming from that deep desolate place of pain and i think some of that is in the song as well as well as a sort of a playfulness that you bring stewart. She flips the gender on the song the perspective of the woman now getting rid of her man..

It is known as she can she never i don't believe you the gun club from the fire of love album in one thousand nine hundred eighty one break where you that's a fantastic jim. I applaud you for including that. That was certainly on my list as well. We had mentioned at the top that we want to go a little deeper than the typical robert johnson covers that we all know so well which is the reason i dove in for the the traveling riverside blues version by hindu love gods <hes> your nineties music fans out. There will probably know the name of that band. It was a one off <hes> warren's yvonne and three members of r._e._m. Bill berry peter buck and mike mills ziv on brought them in to record his album album sentimental hygiene and then apparently one drunk evening. They decided to get together and just you know jam man and nobody thinks of r._e._m. Mm or warns yvonne particularly these blues aficionados but in that late night jam session a couple of johnson songs as well as a few other blue songs surfaced <hes> it was never meant to be released <hes> but eventually did and one of the songs on the record their cover of prince's raspberry beret actually actually became a hit but i'm going to focus on their travelling riverside blues which is yvonne really has a blast singing. This is the song <hes> that originally referenced reference that that infamous squeezing my lemon line he leads i led zeppelin. Yes led zeppelin appropriated for their own the lemon song but but i enjoy just for the sheer adapt these guys doing it. They're just throwing themselves into it. Particularly zevon on the vocals <hes> in the same way that chuck chuck berry was a touchstone for the second and third generations of rock and roll. I think robert johnson is one of those similar kind of influences and you can hear it here. In this version from nineteen ninety ninety hindu love gods with their version of traveling riverside blues mm-hmm the doc women godless women stayed all phone saito sugamo.

Deora goddess and this week we're talking about all things robert johnson and before the break we discussed the myths surrounding rounding the singer and guitarist life and how many of them were deemed to be untrue. Now we wanna highlight the great music he wrote as we said johnson only ever had two recording concessions in his brief life but his songs have lived on through the music of other people across the shahnawaz performing not only in their in concert but on their studio recordings recordings and the famous ones are well-known cream's crossroads and the rolling stones version of love in vein led zeppelin's traveling riverside blues white stripes doing stop breaking down blue stop either all robert johnson songs that had become much more famous in their cover versions than they were in the original version by robert johnson nudging though we want to dig a little the deeper than that and you're going to go first yes such as the sound opinions way greg. We're gonna we're gonna go a little bit deeper. I'm gonna lead off with a song by the gun club <hes> they did it. As preaching the blues both <hes> johnson and son house recorded versions as preaching blues. <hes> you know one of the things things that's fascinating about the gun. Club is the sad tortured life of bandleader jeffrey lee pierce. He died in one thousand nine hundred ninety six of of a brain hemorrhage. He'd had his bouts with drugs. He was a huge inspiration to many people in those indie rock eighties later in their career. Jeffrey lee pearson the gun club recorded for labels started by members of blondie. <hes> those two bands were tight was really sort of an offshoot his music. I thinking a lot of ways of the psycho billy of the cramps and he was a galvanizing performer on stage. I saw them two or three times. <hes> kid congo powers who went on on the play with nick cave was a member of the ban. It was really something to see him. I think i'd ever saw johnson. I know you didn't either but this tortured man finding catharsis in music onstage a difficult life not wallowing in misery but purging the bad bad feelings and preaching blues preaching the blues. I woke up this morning. Blues walking like a man another words johnson like jeffrey jeffrey. Lee pierce was the personification of this music. Here is a little bit of robert. Johnson's preaching blues followed by the gun clubs clubs version from nine thousand nine hundred eighty one on sound opinions small one man..

"Cargo <music> however when robert codify a song he would just take that song and redo it. He paired things down. He changed the tempo. He'd add his signature riffs. When you listen to kokomo arnold's arnold's old original kokomo blues the slide guitar that he's playing is incredibly virtuosic but it's almost manic. It's all over the place. It's it's wonderful. It's remarkable but it doesn't. It's not necessarily integrated with the lyrics with the song they like him. When robert takes that and turns it into sweet home chicago on takes guitar and he creates a signature guitar riff that goes along with the sound yeah and that that was incredibly important in roberts music. He really was the first blues artist to really make use of the riff as a signature style nice not to say that guitarist before him didn't use riffs refs but you know if you listen to too sweet home chicago if you listen to airplane blues if you listen to crossroad blues you know so many of his songs. It's have these riffs that soon as you hear them. You go all i. I know that song. It's like when you hear the beginning of of johnny good i know that song <hes> then he he wanted to be able to do it on the guitar what people did on the piano which is why when people heard his recordings a lot of times. They thought it was two people playing because he was really very very successful with that. You know he was able to to get this. This shuffle beat going and by the way he was the first one to really make use of the shuffle beat that that that at at the data on on the bass strings he'd make use of the shuffle be in have his melody line going on top of it and as a guitarist i can tell you i've been trying to a play his stuff now for more than fifty years and there are there. There are times when when he was able to do those things together that i still say my god. How did he do ooh that something. We have been talking to bruce account for. He <hes> wrote up jumped the devil. The real life of robert johnson with gayle dean wardlow impeccable research great storytelling a a lot of people bummed out because everything they thought they knew about robert johnson was wrong. Thanks for being on sound opinions bruce. Oh this has been a great pleasure.

"Johnson is wrong such as the father. You know i wonder how you and gayle dean felt debunking what has been in decades and decades of mythology gelding and i always used to say i mean during this whole project we used to say you know what everything people thought they knew about robert johnson is wrong exactly what what you said but what we also felt was the story we were beginning to uncover was more interesting than the mythology policy that had been developed around him and and i think that <hes> one of the main purposes behind are are doing this book was to return robert identity to him because personally i feel that all those myths all the stories about well robert johnson's johnston's recordings or at the wrong speed oh. Here's another photograph of robert johnson. Here's here's somebody who claims they own robert johnson's guitar every time every time one of those things surfaces personally. I feel it's kind of like a form of identity theft. The robert robert has developed developed into such a commercial business that people have made a tremendous amount of money and a tremendous amount amount of personal fame from stealing his identity and what we really wanted to do with this book was to get rid of all that trash and give give robert himself back dog in the dog in and i have taken my appetite. We're talking with bruce con for the author author. Co author of up jumped the devil the real life of robert johnson. I think one of the things about johnson that you debunk very well in the book. Is this whole notion of you know. He sold sold the devil at the crossroads and he became his genius blues. Man overnight and what you drill down into is that it didn't work like that. This wasn't some primitive guy from the from the fields that suddenly learned how to play guitar and was genius and blew everybody's mind. He was actually a very skilled artist. A self conscious artists a modern modern artist so this whole devil at the crossroads stuff explain how that got started. What was what was the origin of that story and why did it persist assist for so long will what the actual origin of the story is. <hes> will probably never know some people trace the roots back to africa brecca and rubel belief <hes> in in rituals it gets synchronized in the caribbean and eventually comes ashore. You're too to north america with the slave trade and gets mixed up with christianity so what originally began as a trickster mr figure in africa becomes mixed up with the devil in the united states the idea of of a crossroads crossroads crossroads. I mean that's that's almost a universal concept that the crossroads is a symbol of the the the joining of the the the past and the future the ancestors in the present heaven. Hell crossroads were always seen in almost all cultures as a magical the mystical place and and they usually had some kind of guardian at at the crossroads so an african american tradition it was said that you could go to across roads and you could make a deal not with the devil but you could make a deal generally it was said with a big big black man who will show up and you could work out your deal with this individual and gamblers would do it not just musicians gamblers any you could make any any kind of deal that you wanted and <hes> as i said this this this is a tale that that goes back into at least the early part of the the twentieth century if not predating that and you know the people like tommy johnson tommy johnson allegedly the first blues man that <hes> claimed to have made a deal with with the devil at the crossroads or made a deal at the crossroads at least that's according to his his his his brothers stories and then there are people like p._d. Wheat straw who built himself as the devils son-in-law the high share from hell and and there were there were other other blues artists to sang about making deals with the devil pre dating robert so so by the time robert comes along <hes> he's born born in nineteen eleven by the time he comes of age in the twenty s this is this is a part of of.

"You're listening sound opinions and this week we are talking about a blues musician whose myth looms larger than life off robert johnson is influence on pop music is deep and lasting persisting to this day even though there's very little recorded music by him out out there a large part of that legacies because of the myth that he sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads in exchange for his signature guitar playing prowess and and believe it or not the mystery only escalated from there jim born in nineteen eleven johnson display this really great stage presence from the moment people started watching him perform form a lot of talent a lot of potential but he died suddenly at the age of twenty seven under a very suspicious circumstances and that's an understatement that was eighty one years ago this month and since then there have been all kinds of rumors and stories told about johnson today. We're talking with an expert on robert johnson bruce con fourth. He co wrote the book up jumped the devil. The real life of robert johnson with historian gayle dean wardlow in writing that book they finally got to some of the truths and what they uncovered a lot more fascinating than the myth bruce conflicts resume also includes work as the first curator for the rock and roll hall of fame. He's also a blues historian and former professor at the university of michigan bruce. Welcome to sound opinions. Thank you so much for having me. This has been billed as the definitive book and it's true i've read just about everything written about robert johnson and you have put together a comprehensive biography of a blues man who it has been described for decades as a mystery of phantom and you were the man that set out to do it along with your co author gayle dean wardlow. What made you climb that mountain. Well part of it was precisely the fact that they said it couldn't be done seriously. I remember i remember when i i heard johnson back. In the early sixties nobody had ever heard anything like kim before he was the first country blues artists to be released on a major label so i mean his music and his singing and his his lyrics were completely revolutionary to to all of us <hes> i was part of the folk blues revival in new york city in the early sixties into here. Robert johnson was just like to hear somebody from our space. It was totally revolutionary eh mon. You're naga phone asthma and i said how am i believe to go. Uh then to hear that nobody knew anything about this guy. That was enough. It was like okay. I i not only have to learn everything i can about his music but i'm going to devote as much time as i need to finding <unk> out the truth about this guy's life he died young age twenty seven essentially his entire recording career was <hes> into sessions uh-huh was that the reason that is so little was known about him. I don't think he really got super famous in his lifetime right no i it's an interesting thing he he actually had kind of two levels of fame on the one hand <hes> some people knew him because of his records and admittedly his records did not sell well his his bestselling record tara plane blues sold anywhere between five and ten thousand copies which clearly is is not a hit so he had he had his recording career but then it was his live performances that really seemed to be the most influential when we were doing the book we discovered that those people who saw robert live said he was there was absolutely nobody else like him. I mean he he was the most most amazing performer live on record. That just didn't seem to come across. Most people said well. It's not one person that's two people playing guitar ktar and it's okay so just just another blues artist and he went along even own seven kevin matter who uses i haven't gone essentially every other page in this book could have begun everything.

"We've established that there actually isn't a devil, unless it's the greatest trick you ever pulled. No, we may have just fallen victim to that. But not only so does that mean that story didn't happen in that sense? It probably didn't even happen to Robert Johnson. There's seems to have been a case of mistaken identity because there's a story of an earlier blues man who's not related to Robert Johnson. But at the same last name, his name is Tommy Johnson. And if you're fan of the movie. Oh, brother were art, thou. Yes. And you're only familiar with Robert Johnson. Like me, you may have been wondering all this time why they didn't just call that character. Tommy Johnson Robert Johnson. He was clearly based on Robert Johnson. Well, it turns out, I know now that the Cohen brothers did their homework they tend to do that. Yeah, they do. So. Yeah. Tommy Johnson was in that movie and had sold his soul to the devil in that movie. It's been covered elsewhere that was that great move. To me, crossroads with route macho was it? Good. Well, I mean, it was one of those HBO movies that as a young kid who got a guitar at thirteen watched like fifty times. I never saw it. I thought it was pretty great. I mean Steve Vai isn't it? Oh, yes. Yeah. He plays. Satan's right. Hand man and lead shredder in the in the main cut heads competition at the end depend Morita play Satan. Totally. Who was it, man? He's been in stuff, if he saw me be like, oh, he people as a good Satan wings Houser now treat Williams. I don't know that those only three actors you know, Tommy Chong now. Anyway, I haven't seen it in a while like to check it out. But that there's always sort of been this blues legend all the way around is where the crossroads go meet the devil. You sign up for a lifetime of hellfire in exchange for what, what seems to be like a good deal on earth. Even though the tail end of that tail always ends is like they die young or something right? Don't fall for it kids. That's right. Like, supposedly Jimmy paid sold a soul to the devil to sure who didn't, you know. So the story though, you know, seems to have originated with Tommy Johnson. There's a an article there's this site, Chuck called paranormal academic which is just like a dream come true for me. I just it was linked to in this house of works article, and I mean, you're not going to tinfoil hat dot com anymore. No, not anymore. I've rescinded my membership. So. On paranormal like democ-. There's a an excerpt from an interview with Tommy Johnson's brother, who said Tommy told me the story of what happened. And he supposedly went down to the crossroads. He said, anybody can do this. You get onto the crossroads get there a little before midnight to make sure there on time, which is hilarious. They included that little detail be punctual. And if you bring your own instrument, a great big black man will show up take your instrument from you tuna for you handed back and the deal is done. That's how it happens. And that's the legend became. And but then at some point, it seems to have been transposed onto from Tommy Johnson onto the later on much greater known Robert Johnson. And Robert Johnson seems to have been like sure. Yeah. That happened to me. And, and you can really see that in the some of the song titles of the body of his work. Yeah. Held on my trail me, and the devil, blues, obviously, this on crossroads crossroad blues up jumped the devil. Here's the thing, though. The singing about the devil, and talking about the devil in that community at that time was very commonplace. And Robert Johnson was talking about his demons. Right. Not literal demons, just his demons in life because he had a rough go. And then, you know, fell into alcoholism and chasing women and probably believe that the hell hounds were on his tail or I'm sorry on his trail. Right. So and its tail..
