5.0 out of 5 stars Your blues makes me feel good, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mississippi John Hurt: His Life, His Times, His Blues (American Made Music) (Hardcover)
Mississippi John Hurt did it for me in the sixties when I bought a secondhand "Today" vinyl LP. So to read this biography is brilliant. My only negative comment is that it is so full of facts it is sometimes difficult to read (at bedtime when you are tired) and remember who everyone is. Essential reading though and you get a real 'feel' of the two eras when his music was recorded (1920s and 1960s). Nicely presented book as well, with interesting photos.

This review is from: Mississippi John Hurt: His Life, His Times, His Blues (American Made Music) (Hardcover)
This quite excellent book has been very well researched and tells in much detail the life of one of the great musicians of the last century.

The tale of his rediscovery, with its bittersweet results is very well documented.

The book is also excellently placed in its historical context. For anyone interested in Hurt's music and the realities of the rediscovery of legends like him and Son House, this book is an absolute must..
