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.
On that day 85 years ago, Pablo Casals and Robert Johnson both made recordings that would change music history.
