About the book:

For such a small word, the blues covers a large territory. There's Mississippi Delta and New Orleans style, the Chicago blues and the Texas touch; there's acoustic, electric, and jump, jazzy blues and country blues; and then there are the artists, hundreds of them, and the albums they've spawned. Even a lover of the blues can get lost in the sea of wailing musical moans. It is with total faith that blues fans can turn to Leland Rucker's album guide, which includes his definitive profiles of 600 blues artists, from Howlin' Wolf to Charlie Musselwhite, Billie Holiday to Marcia Ball, and the indispensable "what to buy, what to avoid" album suggestions for each. But Rucker also provides comprehensive lists of blues Web pages, music festivals, radio stations, and record labels, plus a band member index, producer index, and roots index. Rucker's experience and musical acumen add welcome wisdom to the process of shopping for the blues. --Stephanie Gold
