Artist and blues enthusiast George Pratt presents a very personal journey to the heart of the blues, punctuated by his intelligent, insightful commentary on his relationship with the blues and the many interesting musicians he encounters along the way. Its greatest virtue is that it brings home the appeal of blues music in terms of what it means to one man. Pratt is terrific as the anchor for this exploration of the blues, and his commentary is both sensitive and poetic. It also benefits from Pratt's artistic skills. His drawings and watercolors are interspersed with the music performances, interviews and historical photos and provide an added dimension to this wonderful film. Includes rare archival footage of Howlin’ Wolf, Skip James, Mississippi John Hurt. Featured on STARZ and STARZ ON DEMAND.
