With an awareness of the urgency involved, and with considerable devotion, Samuel Charters has chosen twelve major bluesmen, each of whom represents a major facet of the blues, and has written about them. Rather than adopt the voyeuristic tone of the academician, he has used the direct visceral images that have always composed the blues. Also included are interviews, photographs, lyrics, and separate chapters on the black experience in America, and the evolution of the blues language from its African origins. Samuel Charters has renewed contact with the greatness of the blues legacy – from the haunting lyric songs of the bluesmen like Robert Pete Williams and Lightnin’ Hopkins to the fiercely joyous shouts of Champion Jack Depree, Memphis Slim, and Mighty Joe Young.
