Can't You Hear the Wind Howl [Import]
Top Customer Reviews
Like most who watch this video I bought the 2 CD Robert Johnson set and read the in-depth booklet that comes with the CDs. The booklet is good, and I'm a good reader, but my retention was not that high and I much prefer this DVD as a medium to the booklet. The DVD is fascinating from so many perspectives: a good biography, a glimpse back at early 20th century culture, and as an attempt to understand the signifigance of this musician.
For people who love documentaries, biographies, or music...highly recommended.
Example: This man played and danced on the back roads of Arkansas to earn money to buy a guitar that was lost in a fire. He became so popular for Sunday afternoon drivers even the police had a hard time directing traffic. How many black americans had cars then? Then we know who loved his music too.
Keb Mo' was beautifully understated in the reenactments. In fact since he's lip syncing, and the lighting was so dramatic and mysterious, at moments I thought I was seeing the lost footage of Robert Johnson.
The interviews were enlightening and personal. Johnny Shines had me in tears one moment and laughing the next. What a pleasure for the world to find out the relationship Johnnny and Robert had. Any fan of the Blues or Rock N' Roll should see this film.

This was originally done for the Discovery Channel. Part of the reason it's lacking certain things is the limitations for commercial interuption on the air. Read morePublished on May 4 2001 by Demoley
I was very disappointed in this video, Keb-Mo was good, but there was very little of him playing, actually there was very little playing by anyone. Read morePublished on April 27 2000 by ken
I feel this is a fine film. Although there are no real new insights to the music or the myth the story is told in a nice cinematic way. Read morePublished on Dec 10 1999
If you are familiar with Robert Johnson's bio then you may not find this very insightful. I am a big fan of both he and Keb' Mo. Read morePublished on Nov. 30 1999 by Christopher Shafer
