Fun, passionate read. I will be excited to see this in a Library of America volume soon, I hope they are able to reproduce all the priceless pictures along with Murray's stomping text. ( )

Murray is easy to disagree with, and just plain wrong sometimes, but his love of this music and African-American culture of the 20s-50s is great enough, and contagious enough, to overwhelm my objections. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0306803623, Paperback)

This study of the blues by one of America’s premier essayists and novelists will change old attitudes about a tradition that continues to feed the very heart of popular music—a blues that dances, shakes, shimmies, and exchanges bad news for stomping, rollicking, pulse-quickening good times.
