Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This masterful exploration of American roots music--country, rockabilly, and the blues--spotlights the artists who created a distinctly American sound, including Ernest Tubb, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Elvis Presley, Merle Haggard, and Sleepy LaBeef. In incisive portraits based on searching interviews with these legendary performers, Peter Guralnick captures the boundless passion that drove these men to music-making and that kept them determinedly, and sometimes almost desperately, on the road.

Synopsis:

LOST HIGHWAY spotlights Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Merle Haggard, and others in a tribute to American country music, the blues, and their revolutionary offspring, rockabilly. "You put the book down feeling that its sweep is vast, that you have read of giants who walked among us".--Lester Bangs, LOS ANGELES HERALD EXAMINER. 140 photos.
