(Please note that the soundtrack can be purchased separately on CD. It has proven to be a big hit at parties and sitting around the campfire this past summer. Get them both and crank 'em up, but don't forget the whiskey!)
The film is well made,split screens and a mixture of color and b/w,sound is excellent.The stories and performances of the featured musicians are the basis of the film,some real characters here.
Bonus features are excellent,extended performances and deleted scenes.
"T-Model"Ford is excellent,performs a Chuck Berry tune without the vocal, because Chucks attorney would not allow it--if the British groups of the 60's hadn't performed his songs where would Chuck be today--sing the songs, spread the word.
Great effort by everybody involved in this release,anybody interested in the blues and music history should watch this--there may not be many more opportunites to see and hear this wonderful music--all will be left with is the recordings and the Mississippi Blues Trail Markers, great as all that is, the blues is a live experience--support this release, and go down to Mississippi,it is a beautiful state,my few visits have always been great.

I have watched this documentary so many times, and bought it for blues loves even more times. It's a quirky, wonderful film.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
A documentary that is realistic in how a real blues musician lives...not very glamorous. Contains good music and I recommend for the hardcore blues aficionado.Published on January 12, 2014 by Sticksmagoo
