The book tracks Peer's role in such breakthrough events as the recording of Mamie Smith's âCrazy Blues,â the first country recording sessions with Fiddlin' John Carson, his discovery of Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family, the popularizing of Latin American music during World War II, and the postwar transformation of music on the airwaves.
