Format: Hardcover
It may bother some in Texas music hot spots farther South and East to admit such but, West Texas (Northwest Texas) has long played a huge, maybe the largest and most influential, role in the development of the various Texas sounds. This book is one of the basic essentials for anyone interested in Texas music and Texas musicians.
- Robert Pratt, host of Pratt on Texas
