Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Chasin' That Devil Music - Searching for the Blues' is the fruit of research into the birth of the blues by a blues scholar who has researched the artists on old 78 RPM records to uncover their stories along with rare interviews and songs which are on the CD included with the book.

Book News Annotation:

The author is one of the key figures in the efforts, begun in the 1960s, of ethnomusicologists and blues enthusiasts to search the Mississippi Delta for the forgotten blues musicians who originally recorded in the 1920s and '30s. This anthology of his writings, much of it originally done for small blues magazines and liner notes of reissue albums, but also including some new work, presents a wealth of information available nowhere else. The same can also be said of the recordings on the enclosed CD, which are taken from rare discs in the author's private collection. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Traces the development and characteristics of the Delta blues, and describes the most influential blues musicians and recordings of the 1920s and 1930s.
