The concept that a deal with the devil could lead to fame and fortune, based on talents lent to you, is not new. Hollywood has done it many ways at various times in cinematic history. However, with the soundtrack efforts of Steve Vai, Ry Cooder, and Arlen Roth, this one is noteworthy. “Crossroads” is a dark film exploring the legend and music of Robert Johnson.

His film choice spoke volumes and the insight was refreshingly new, yet somehow vintage. Take a Delta blues trip with us, as we discuss the movie that moved Will Freed, “Crossroads”.
