: I saw part of a movie called Crossroads--it was kind of like "The Karate Kid", only it was the blues instead of karate.
: There was a scene where a young guy with a passion for the blues sneaks the old blues man out of whatever institutional place (looked kind of like a hospital).
: When the young guy first walked into the blues man's room to get him, he was really wailing on a harmonica. Obviously, the blues man was faking the harmonica playing.
: Does anyone here know who was really playing that blues harp music and have recommendations on CDs?
sonny terry played harp on 2 tracks [crossroads & walkin away blues] other harp players were john "duke" logan [willie brown blues] and a guy called frank frost [cotton needs pickin].crossroads was a originaly wrote by robert johnson.the film is a haunting tale of the search for blues legend robert johnson's famous lost song.the film is well worth watching and has a brillient sound track.
