"Southern Soul-Blues takes on a woefully unexamined topic to make a significant contribution to studies in African American popular music. David Whiteis is a conscientious researcher, an astute observer, and a superlative writer."
—Robert Pruter, author of Chicago Soul and Doowop: The Chicago Scene
"In this enlightening account of a neglected musical genre, Whiteis profiles some of the genre's leading artists, explores the evolution of modern soul-blues, and insists that soul-blues represents a 'further continuum' of the blues tradition."—Booklist
"Southern Soul-Blues proves that African-Americans have not deserted the blues, but rather redefined it for newer eras."—Downbeat
"Soul-blues fans will savor this love letter."—Kirkus Reviews
"David Whiteis writes with a fan's insistent devotion and a scholar's dedication."—Shepherd Express
