Academy Award winner Denzel Washington tells the "guaranteed, gold-plated, 99.9 percent truth" about the legendary African-American hero, John Henry. Blues artist B.B. King provides song and music. Washington is a natural storyteller. His delivery of the John Henry story, which is peppered with folksy details, draws listeners in, making them part of the crowd that witnessed John Henry's victory over the steam drill in the famous steel-driving competition. B.B. King's music reflects the changing moods of the story and heightens the drama. The music is played without vocals on the second side. John Henry is another outstanding classic story from the Rabbit Ears American Heroes and Legends Series. It's superb entertainment for the entire family.
