Description
This is the ultimate reference book for blues lovers - a comprehensive biographical encyclodpedia, with more than 600 entries profiling every important blues artist from Bessie Smith to Koko Taylor, Charlie Patton to Robert Cray, Blind Willie McTell to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Each entry gives the essential biography, characterizes the artist's style and musical contributions to the blues, tracks their recording career, and ends up with a list of "essential listening" - the recordings you must go to if you want to hear that person's best work. No other single source brings together so much personal information and discography, including artists in the UK, and covers all the blues: Classic Blues, Piedmont Blues, Chicago Blues, Pre-War Blues, Memphis Blues, Mississippi Delta Blues, Texas Blues, Rhythm and Blues, and Contemporary Blues. It is an entertaining and richly informative guide for blues aficionados and new listeners alike.
