The Blues - A Visual History: 100 Years of Music That Changed the World

Author(s): Mike Evans; Scott Barretta (Editor); Robert Gordon (Editor); Marshall Chess (Foreword by)

Music | September Non-fiction

Charting the history of the blues from its rural roots in the American South, and focusing on the key musicians and singers who brought it recognition worldwide, The Blues: A Visual History is a unique and fully illustrated account of the development of the blues. This deceptively simple, 12-bar musical form has become the common denominator that has driven the popular music of the last hundred years. As John Lee Hooker put it: "The music we play . . . that music is the roots. Rock music, everything else, is like a branch on the same tree. It all comes from the Blues."
