Publisher's Summary

[Contains explicit content] November 23, 1936 was a good day for recorded music. Two men - an ocean apart - sat before a microphone and began to play. One was a cello prodigy who had performed for the Queen of Spain; the other played guitar and was a regular in the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta. But on that day, Pablo Casals and Robert Johnson both made recordings that would change music history.
