The crossroads is a dusty spot in the Mississippi Delta where, as legend would have it, hopeful bluesmen sign a contract with the devil, exchanging their souls for success, or something like that. In pursuit of a lost song of (Robert) Johnson's, a 17-year-old guitar prodigy from Juilliard named Eugene spirits another fabled bluesman, Willie Brown, or Blind Dog Fulton, out of his nursing home, and they begin a journey back to the roots of the blues.
Walter Goodman, N.Y. Times, 14 March 1986
