This book by expert blues scholar Gayle Dean Wardlow reveals the stories of the great blues pioneers - many in their own words. Based on personal interviews, public records, and even door-to-door canvassing, Wardlow's lively writings reflect the unique excitement of blues search-and-discovery. He paints colorful portraits of both legends and unknowns of the 1920s, '30s, and beyond who helped shape the music: Charlie Patton, Ishmon Bracey, Bukka White, Tommy Johnson, the Real Willie Brown, Skip James, and dozens more. The companion CD brings to life rare Delta blues selections by legendary bluesmen, plus snippets of Wardlow's interviews with the musicians.
