      Blues Books - Recommendations. There are many fine books on the Blues, so I thought I would share with you my recommendations. The list starts with general books of the blues (essential reading), followed by blues artists (in alphabetical order), interjected with blues books on particular themes. Print book: Fiction: EnglishView all editions and formats: Summary: In the summer of , Vietnam seems a long way off to eighteen-year-old amateur blues musician Leo Suther. With one more year of high school to go he still has a lot to learn.

      Noteworthy Goods. Clothing, footwear, accessories and gifts for men. We are committed to finding the sweet spot where commerce and art meet. To that end 32 Bar Blues pays tribute to 3 established, influential, pioneering American artists each season - a musician, a writer and a photographer. A number of female singers haven’t made it into the canon, itself largely produced—as critics like Lisa Hix and Amanda Petrusich have shown—by the selection bias of an insular community of collectors. But you can hear many incredible, less-famous women of the blues appear in the Spotify playlist further up, in the company of more famous names like Bessie and Mamie Smith, Holiday, Joplin.
