Gibbs Smith Publisher, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 96 pages
The blues had a child and they called it rock and roll. But it's impossible to look past the parent when so much unbridled talent has and continues to contribute to this increasingly popular music form. The Blues. So much feeling. So much mood. So well-captured.
You can feel the soul stirring in 20 stunning photo-biographies featuring Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Memphis Minnie, John Lee Hooker plus 17 more. Each of their lives, their works -- their rise to fame -- is eloquently captured in every mini-biography. When you look at all the stories -- from the blues' slavery beginnings through the strains that sparked rock and roll. Then hear it smoldering in the 10-song accompanying CD designed to heighten this unequaled collection.
