The Bluesman: the Musical Heritage of Black Men and Women in the Americas.
by [Blues Music] Finn, Julio.

Publisher Information:
Quartet Books, London: 1986.

A Near Fine copy with a remainder mark to the bottom edge in a Fine dust jacket. Finn provides a fine study of the roots--spiritual, social and anthropological--of the blue genre. He embraces African religions, the slave trade, Voodoo, the early country blues and the modern electric model. He refers to the influences of writers like Zora Neal Hurston and Langston Hughes for their impact on the music form and delivers a substantial study of Robert Johnson. Illustrated with photographs and drawings.
