What a bringdown. I have never come across such a shoddily produced book. Dozens of typos litter virtually every page. The factual errors are laughable - the belief that John Mayall's "Top of the World" is the same song as Howling Wolf's "Sitting on Top of the World"; a Wheels of Fire track quoted as "Deserted Cities of the Night"; the assertion that there are no blues songs on Disraeli Gears - so what's Arthur Reynolds' "Outside Woman Blues" then?

Don't pay good money for this unprofessional effort.

A tip of the beret to the author for trying,but...
