Fully updated to reflect today's revitalized blues world, this guide is any blues fan's lifeline to the best blues past and present.

This fun and easy-to-use guide provides profiles of over 1,000 blues artists. Thirty historical essays plus supplemental "music maps" chart the roots and evolution of the blues, its various styles, instruments used, key artists, and more.

One of the questions you have to ask in a review like this is "compared to what"? By comparison, the Music Hound Guide to the Blues costs a dollar more, reviews thousands (literally) fewer albums, and makes assessments that are just plain silly at time. And don't get me started on the latest version of the Rolling Stone Album Guide (which claims to be all you need for all genres). Actually, I panned that one pretty well elsewhere on Amazon.
I've used two editions of this book over the last six or seven years to build my blues library, and I've seldom been steered wrong. For one thing, they have a sophisticated rating system that not only tells you how good they think an album is, but how essential it is for a collector. For instance, they point out which are the best albums to start with if you are just coming to appreciate an artist.
Also, the extra writing is well worth the price. There are hundreds of worthwhile overviews of artists' lives and musical careers. They seem honest and insightful. And there are many essays about the history of the blues and the different genres of the blues that are extremely educational.
The bottom line: this is a great book for the home bookshelf and for packing into your favorite used CD shop. As for the stuff that shouldn't be there in some people's opinions: I've never complained about having too much information. Omissions are a much more serious issue, but those are easily overcome by consulting the excellent website run by this company which is obviously much more comprehensive than any book could ever be. (But there are some places you just can't pack a computer . . . ) This book is definitely number one in its field, and a bargain at the price. I doubt that any blues enthusiast will regret the money spent on this jewel.
