Product description

Review

"Southern Soul-Blues takes on a woefully unexamined topic to make a significant contribution to studies in African American popular music. David Whiteis is a conscientious researcher, an astute observer, and a superlative writer."--Robert Pruter, author of Chicago Soul and Doowop: The Chicago Scene


"Essential reading."--"Library Journal"

"Written in an engaging style. . . . Whiteis gives readers a deep cross-cut of this distinctive vernacular musical culture."-"-"Journal of Folklore Research""

"

"In this enlightening account of a neglected musical genre, Whiteis profiles some of the genre's leading artists, explores the evolution of modern soul-blues, and insists that soul-blues represents a 'further continuum' of the blues tradition."--"Booklist
"""Southern Soul-Blues" proves that African-Americans have not deserted the blues, but rather redefined it for newer eras."--"Downbeat"


"Soul-blues fans will savor this love letter."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"David Whiteis writes with a fan's insistent devotion and a scholar's dedication."--"Shepherd Express"

About the Author
