Satan and Adam – New York profile (WNYC-TV, 1992)


[
Produced and directed by Patricia Zur, first appearing on WNYC-TV in New York, this video portrait shows Sterling Magee (Mister Satan) on the streets of Harlem, at work in Dan Lynch on 10th (a short-lived NY bar) with harmonica player Adam Gussow, and in Bobby Robinson’s “Happy House Records,” a Harlem institution, where Sterling tells the story of learning the blues from a bird down in Mississippi.

Also here: priceless footage of Sterling at home in his Harlem apartment, talking about what the blues are (and aren’t) and demonstrating his unique “three-octave sound” on acoustic guitar.
