The Legacy Of The Blues: The Art and Lives of Twelve Great Bluesmen

$15.00

Blues is a language – one which has evolved its own rules and which is the sole property of a culture always forced to the periphery of white society. As such it is a political language. With an awareness of the urgency involved, and with considerable devotion, Samuel Charters has chosen twelve major bluesmen, each of whom represent a major facet of the blues, and has written about them in this collection of historical perspective. It is a wonderful collection of interviews, photographs, lyrics and stories of the black experience.
