LEGENDS OF THE BLUES is a years-in-the-making passion project straight from Bill’s heart. This 224 pp. book contains 100 full color portraits of Stout’s favorite blues musicians and singers born prior to 1930. Robert Johnson’s here, along with the Chess Records stable of Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Willie Dixon and Chuck Berry.
Bill has written a well-researched bio for every entry that includes recommended songs and interesting cover versions. PLUS, the book includes “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning”, a 14 track CD of great blues music personally selected and sequenced by Stout!
Legends of the Blues, a visual celebration of a great African American-created art form, is the perfect gift for the roots music fan in your family. Why buy here? William Stout signs each book we sell and will be happy to personalize each copy as well.
