Review:

"Maybe the best book I've ever read concerning music or any music personality.."
-Blues Notes
"Indispensable.."
-The Times (London)
"Noted blues scholars...paint a picture of Walter as a fiery, independent soul.."
---Library Journal
"Given his standing in the world of blues, it's amazing that it has taken so long for an in-depth book on Marion Walter Jacobs to appear, but be in no doubt that the wait has been well worth it. Reading like a novel, but one which even Walter Mosley might have struggled to plot with credibility, the story of the ultimately deeply-troubled genius progenitor of contemporary blues harmonica is unfolded in an enthralling manner by a triumvirate of authors notably well-qualified for the task."
-Bill Moodie, "Juke Blues(UK)
