Review:

"Documents the most important time, places, and faces in music history." -- Ben Harper

"More than the greatest bluesmen telling their stories, it's a way to fall in love with the blues all over..." -- Dave Marsh

"Rollin' and Tumblin' is a great tribute to the guitarists of the past 50-some years who defined the blues -- not just by the notes theyve played, but by the lives theyve lived. This book has the most in-depth biographies and interviews ever published on certain artists. Jas Obrecht has done his usual excellent job, with his passion for the true stories of the blues." -- Jim O'Neal, founding editor, Living Blues

"The book's like a river of whisky and it made me feel like a diving duck." -- Dave Marsh

"This is the book that tells the story of the first music that was here." -- John Lee Hooker

"This is the story of the blues before Pepsi!" --Ry Cooder
