Cross Road Blues Video & Audio

"Cross Road Blues" online

Listen to the original while looking at a slide show including the only known pictures of Johnson.

"Me and the Devil Blues" online

This one is nearly as basic a signature piece as "Cross Road Blues," and much more explicit about Johnson's relationship with the devil. Also, this link includes a nice artistic animation of the song.

"Hellhound On My Trail"

This track is the one that brings out the greatest sense of suffering and hopelessness in Johnson's work.
