Excellent. I've read many early blues histories, many good but too overly detailed for me to get any continuity. This one is very clearly presented and starts much earlier in history. It follows many important players and groups from the early minstrels to the near present, and illustrates a lot of the early song and performance references with asides to covers from more recent performances. A great read.
This is a really great book for anyone that wants the deeper, actually history of the blues. It's not just a history of "what" but "why" and Paul Merry lays it out in very simple terms with a flow that keeps the reader turning pages.
