2.0 out of 5 stars Warning!, 16 April 2012
By 
This review is from: Shine A Light: My Year with "Blind" Willie Johnson (Paperback)
Blues fan! Don't do as I did and mistake this for a book about Blind Willie Johnson's life and music. Instead, it is a book about the author's quest to find Johnson's grave. I know my own stupidity isn't really a reason to give this such a low rating but, frankly, who cares? This is internet blog standard writing and there's no reason anyone should have to pay to read it. THe only reason I haven't given it a one star review is because I didn't get to the end of it, and it seems unfair to rate it lower based on the fact that I thought it was going to be something that it isn't.

If you are looking for a biography of Blind Willie Johnson, I'm afraid there's very little choice out there and what there is is fairly substandard. There's very little about him in most general blues histories as well. It's about time somebody did a thorough biography of this great bluesman.
