Standing at the crossroads - the Mississippi crossroads of Robert
Johnson and the devil's infamous meeting - Mark Radcliffe found
himself facing his own personal crunch point. Aged sixty, he had
just mourned the death of his father, only to be handed a diagnosis
of mouth and throat cancer. This momentous time in his life, and
being at the most famous junction in music history, led Radcliffe
to think about the pivotal tracks in music and how the musicians
who wrote and performed them - from Woodie Guthrie to Gloria
Gaynor, Kurt Cobain to Bob Marley - had reached the crossroads that
led to such epoch-changing music. In this warm, intimate account of
music and its power to transform our lives, Radcliffe takes a
personal journey through these touchstone tracks, looking at the
story behind the records and his own experiences as he goes in
search of these moments.
