The author, in a series of short articles previously written for Blues magazines and record album liner notes, discusses his search for old blues records and old bluesman in the Delta area during the 1960-1970's. Great biographical infromation, interviews with old bluesmen. Really brings the times (1925-1950) to life and turns artists who were only names on old records to life as real people. If you really like old pre-WW2 blues, this is a great book. Facinating. The enclosed CD has lots of great old blues, but most are availible in previous reissues. Still a great 'listening' disc.
