Summary
"Memphis, Tennessee, is a major cross-roads for blues musicians, songs, and styles. Memphis is where the blues first "came to town" and became a cosmopolitan performance genre, and the city has long been a center of synthesis and evolution in blues recording. This volume tells the story of blues in Memphis through previously unpublished interviews with nine performers who helped create and sustain the music from the days before its commercial success through the early 1970s. Their attitudes, experiences, and insights impact a deeper understanding of blues aesthetic and philosophy."--Jacket
