A Blues Bibliography, Second Edition is a revised and enlarged version of the definitive blues bibliography first published in 1999. Material previously omitted from the first edition has now been included, and the bibliography has been expanded to include works published since then. In addition to biographical references, this work includes entries on the history and background of the blues, instruments, record labels, reference sources, regional variations and lyric transcriptions and musical analysis.

The Blues Bibliography is an invaluable guide to the enthusiastic market among libraries specializing in music and African-American culture and among individual blues scholars.

Essential reference work.. The people at Exeter, starting with David Horn's Literature Of American Music in 1972, have brought order to the literature and refined and updated it to 2005/6.. The 1st edition is probably still useful for the items deleted here. Read full review
