Excellent book. I read it so long ago, i'm not sure how to speak about it in speficics. Look up Esquerita for example, and you will find well written, excellent information and contexts. I just wanted to do a review on this because so many people don't know about this book and it is one of, if not the best book I've read on the rhythm and blues roots of rock n roll.

One of my favorite books on the rise of rock and roll, particularly since it links rock and roll to the rising American urbanism. Read full review
