Synopsis: A columnist describes his cross-country odyssey in search of America's indigenous blues music, in a chronicle of the history of blues music, its legendary musicians, and its promoters, disc jockeys, and record producers

From Publishers Weekly: In his search for the roots of the blues, a nationally syndicated columnist from Georgia visits cocktail lounges, juke joints and no-name dives in Mississippi, Memphis, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland, Calif. Among the bluespeople whose racy stories he quotes are 70-ish Rufus Thomas ("the world's oldest teenager") of Sun and Stax records; Alligator's Bruce Iglauer, who, in the author's estimation, records the best contemporary blues; Koko Taylor ("the queen of the blues"), who recorded for Willie Dixon on Chess; Watts's Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson; trumpeter Gregory Davis of the Dirty Dozen; signer Valerie Wellington, who forsook Verdi and Wagner for Elmore James and Ma Rainey; and German-born Chris Strachwitz, the first person to record Louisiana zydeco music and the man who made Clifton Chenier famous. Merrill's route is leisurely and each step a festival for blues devotees. Photos not seen by PW.
