Thanks! What I really liked about the song in that scene is that there is only the harmonica playing and it stands on its own really well.
Do you know of any CDs that have really good tracks of harmonica solos with no accompaniment?
: : 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?
: : Thanks!

: 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.
