From Mamie Smith and her seminal recording of "Crazy Blues" in 1920 through the standard makers Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, and Blind Boy Fuller to contemporary stars such as Robert Cray, Joe Louis Walker, and Kenny Neal -- the musical tradition known as the "blues" has been long and varied. Rising out of the shared uncertainties of Reconstruction freedom thrust upon succeeding generations of African Americans in the Deep South, this musical genre has found enthusiasts and spawned new artists around the globe, giving birth, in turn, to rock-and-roll. The popular Encyclopedia of the Blues, first published by the University of Arkansas Press in 1992 and reprinted six times, has become an indispensable reference source for all involved with or intrigued by the music. The work alphabetizes hundreds of biographical entries, presenting detailed examinations of the instruments, trends, recordings, producers, and performers who have created and popularized the blues. It is appended with a very useful bibliography and discography, as well as a compilation and mini-study of certain blues standards. In this new edition, over seventy-five rarely or never-before-published photographs feature the work of three blues photographers -- Paul Harris, Anton Mikofsky, and Gerard Haussler. Handy and easy to use, the Encyclopedia of the Blues is the best-selling basic guide to a truly American art form.
