A nice counterpoint to Clapton's mannered renderings... 5 Mar. 2005
By Eric 'Stubby Joe' Childs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Hammond - underrated, largely unknown outside of blues circles, and saddled with being the son of an historically important producer - here presents his attempts at the Johnson catalogue over the years.

It's far more impressive than Eric Clapton's latest Johnson offering, largely because Hammond doesn't approach the material with kid gloves. His 'Travelling Riverside Blues' is uptempo and engaging; his 'Crossroad Blues' suitably raw (with the nice addition of a funky slide lick in the turnaround); 'Hellhound on my Trail' is atmospheric without wandering into Vincent Price territory; and '32-20 Blues' energetic and interesting.

There are a few drawbacks, however. Hammond's voice is a weak link - his falsetto, exhibited on a live cut of 'Me and the Devil Blues' - is particularly grating, yet he doesn't try to Xerox Johnson's vocals in the manner of Clapton. His singing is largely his own, and that's admirable even if it is not to everyone's tastes.

The final tracks are mid-1960s electric versions of Johnson's songs, and they are underwhelming. Still, they give one an insight into how Johnson's material was approached by white musicians before he became the overnight sensation (60 years in the making) of the 1980s and 1990s.

As an insight into Johnson, this album is therefore hit-and-miss. As an insight into the historical development of John Hammond in 'reading' Johnson, it is excellent. His commitment to Robert Johnson (and the blues more generally), irrespective of trends and commercial success, is therefore well documented on 'At The Crossroads'. Seek this one out.

John channels Johnson 23 Mar. 2005
By drDHartman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is so good, so raw and real, and so much in the spirit of Robert Johnson that Eric Clapton should be ashamed for thinking he could do better. You can practically taste the dust being kicked up while Johnson (er. .. Hammond) stands at the Crossroads waiting for an appointment to sell his soul to the Big Red Guy. It's not derivative. It's a heartfelt and down to the bone interpretation. Get this CD if you want to see Hammond channel the soul of Robert Johnson

A must have for the Blues lover 29 Dec. 2012
By Pete - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
John Hammond has been true to the great Robert Johnson, making sure his name will not be forgotten in the history of the blues. Hammond is a guitar virtuoso, not in the how many notes can I play fast, or how loud can I play, but in the field of incorporating seemingly impossible runs and nuances that can be wrought out of his instrument. John's voice is at the top of his game, as he pays tribute to the Robert Johnson style of painting a picture with each song. A great CD.
Nice Recap 13 Jun. 2013

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Collection has a new twist to some classics from this primo artist. If you think the originals are a little too raw, try this.
