Robert Johnson (c. 1583 – 1633) was an English composer and lutenist of the late Tudor and early Jacobean eras. He is sometimes called "Robert Johnson II" to distinguish him from an earlier Scottish composer. Johnson worked with William Shakespeare providing music for some of his later plays. Robert Johnson was the son of John Johnson, who was lutenist to Elizabeth I. In 1594 Robert's father died, and in 1596 he joined the household of George Carey, 2nd Baron Hunsdon as an apprentice. Robert is assumed to have been around 13 at the time, as this was a typical age to begin.

Robert Johnson's recorded legacy comprises about 30 songs recorded in 1936 and 1937, yet this man is the one that Eric Clapton calls "the greatest folk blues guitarist that ever lived". Now when a man of the stature of Eric Clapton, generally regarded as the greatest blues guitarist around, starts throwing quotes around like that, you better take some notice. How about Keith Richards' "you'd think you were getting a handle on playing the blues and then to hear Johnson - whoa!"

The story of Robert Johnson is one of the most intriguing in the history of blues and its demon child, rock & roll. His life and death are cloaked in myth and mystery, increasingly romanticized with each new generation of blues devotees. The truth, as this DVD succinctly demonstrates, is that relatively little is really known about the brilliant young Delta bluesman who, legend has it, sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads in exchange for guitar mastery. Even the source of that tale is in dispute, although contemporaries of Johnson's interviewed for this documentary claim that.

Robert Johnson was one of the most legendary and mysterious Delta Bluesmiths of all time. Little is known about his life, but his music has influenced many different artists, like Eric Clapton and Keith Richards.
