Ry Cooder - Walkin' Away Blues

 


Walkin' Away Blues is from the 1986 movie Crossroads. Eugene Martone, a young student studying classical guitar at Juilliard School was researching the blues and guitar music of Robert Johnson. His mythically creative acclaim that he "sold his soul to the Devil at the crossroads" intrigued the young student.  Martone learns of the missing song that Johnson wrote and so begins a quest to find it.
