In this examination of early popular blues, Peter C. Muir traces the genre s early history and the highly creative interplay between folk and popular forms, focusing especially on the roles W. C.

Long Lost Blues exposes for the first time the full scope and importance of early popular blues to mainstream American culture in the early twentieth century. Closely analyzing sheet music and other print sources that have previously gone unexamined, Muir revises our understanding of the evolution and sociology of blues at its inception.
