This book combines three influential and much-quoted books Savannah Syncopators; Blacks, Whites and Blues and Recording the Blues, updated with additional new essays, which collectively confront the problem of how, when and from where the blues emerged and developed. It emphasizes the significance of the African heritage, the mutuality of much white and black music and the role of recording in consolidating the blues. Redressing some of the misconceptions that persist in writing on African-American music, it will be essential reading for all enthusiasts of blues, jazz and country music.

Review:

"The reappearance of these three long-out-of-print books is enough cause for celebration." Notes

"What a delight to have three classic works on blues reissued under one cover. Oliver is to be congratulated for conceiving of the idea and for bringing it to fruition...This book should be in every academic library." CHOICE Dec 2001

"...anyone with a general knowledge of the blues will have his or her understanding deepened by these works, particularly in the updated guise in which they appear here." American Recorder
