Featuring a foreword by B. B. King, Squeeze My Lemon: A Collection Of Classic Blues Lyrics is an anthology of popular blues phrases compiled by Randy Poe. Few entire songs are presented; instead, there are choice verses concerning love, birth, death, prison, and other topics common to this home-grown American music genre. A unique survey of the unique voice that blues offers, interspersed with brief yet distinctive insights, Squeeze My Lemon is an impressive and very welcome addition to personal, academic, and community library American Music History reference collections and reading lists.
