Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- The Year of the Blues reaches fever pitch in fall 2003 with the theatrical release (and airing on PBS) of seven documentary films, each by a noted feature director (Martin Scorsese, Wim Wenders, Charles Burnett, Mike Figgis, and Clint Eastwood among them) and the release on CD of several major new blues compilations.- Peter Guralnick, celebrated for his bestselling two-volume biography of Elvis Presley, Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love, is a master of narrative who knows the world of American roots music better than any other writer.- NIGHTHAWK BLUES was first published in hardcover in 1980 (Seaview Books) and subsequently in paperback (Thunder's Mouth Press). Both editions have long been unavailable.

Synopsis:

A legendary blues performer traces his extraordinary life, from his humble Mississippi beginnings, to his early experiences of road trips and romance, to his recording and festival performance days. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
