I go through phases with favored songs. When I created this piece, "Buck Fifty and a Flat Head Ford" was one constant repeat. I love stories about Faustian deals but am also chilled by them. Everything has a price.
Robert Jordan, the blues master, was said to have made such a deal. This is my interpretation of what went down after he signed his name.
