    This was painful Like I need some hippy blues nerd to tell me that black people listen to all kinds of music and that white audiences bring their racist baggage to how they hear the music All his points are valid, but they are so belabored If you are after truth and authenticity then this dude is fighting the good fight in the culture wars If you just dig the blues, and you know it s phony, then this is going to hurt He should of just written a biography of Leroy Carr instead of gunni This was painful Like I need some hippy blues nerd to tell me that black people listen to all kinds of music and that white audiences bring their racist baggage to how they hear the music All his points are valid, but they are so belabored If you are after truth and authenticity then this dude is fighting the good fight in the culture wars If you just dig the blues, and you know it s phony, then this is going to hurt He should of just written a biography of Leroy Carr instead of gunning for all the claptonclones who ll buy this polemic because the unholy robert johnson is on the cover and in the subtitle Or maybe not I just don t care what most blues fans think of the blues, I don t feel the need to convert the hoards of beer bellied white boys from worshiping chicken choking guitar solos to dancing to barrelhouse piano I guess if Elijah Wald broadens a few hori...

    Excellent overview but not so much of Robert Johnson as the history of the Blues in America The book is divided into three parts the land where Johnson lived Mississippi Delta , what we actually know of Robert Johnson s life and to what degree the blues was actually influenced by Johnson who Clapton said, was the greatest blues man whoever lived A primary theme of the history is how blues is perceived by its two primary audiences First, blues was originally a popular form of music played Excellent overview but not so much of Robert Johnson as the history of the Blues in America The book is divided into three parts the land where Johnson lived Mississipp...

    The premise of this book is blues history as we know it is all wrong What we take for blues history is a string of musicians picked by a handful of English blues enthusiasts, notably the Rolling Stones and rolled into a the myth of the poor outsider Real Blues history is far richer and diverse than what we think of when we think of the classical cannon of blues musicians today Whether you buy into that or not I do the book is a must read for any one interested in today s popular music or in The premise of this book is blues history as we know it is all wrong What we take for blues history is a string of musicians picked by a handful of English blues enthusiasts, notably the Rolling Stones and rolled into a the myth of the poor outs...

    Very thorough and well researched history of the blues The author s primary aim is to separate myth from fact, specifically in regard to Delta blues and Robert Johnson Mr Wald emphasizes the differences in perspective between black and white blues audiences and recounts the formation of the white blues revivalists romanticized view of the Mississippi Delta blues For me, it was a fascinating approach and after reading the book, I ve come to question my view of the blues and what I perceive as Very thorough and well researched history of the blues The author s primary aim ...

    I probably thought I knew the Blues After all, I was born and raised in Mississippi, and have lived most of my life within 40 miles of HWY 61 and within spitting distance of the Delta Turns out I didn t know squat, either about Robert Johnson or the Blues in general This book by Elijah Wald was both a revelation and an education If you re at all interested in the Blues and how it relates andimportantly, perhaps how it DOESN T relate to the early roots music of America, you need this I probably thought I knew the Blues After all, I was born and raised in Mississippi, and have lived most of my life within 40 miles of HWY 61 and within spitting distance of the Delta Turns out I didn t know squat, either about Robert Johnson or the Blues in general This book by Elijah Wald was both a revelation and an education If you re at all interested in the Blues and h...

    Great exploration of blues and their original place in popular music However, Wald is obviously fighting some blues scholar group think that doesn t seem as prevalent any Perhaps this book is what helped show scholars that the popular lonesome, weary, traveled blues player icon was not the only, nor the most common blues singer out there I found his assertion that women were the original consumers of...

    Nice analysis of early blues and our misperceptions of what the early blues musicians were listening to, what they were trying to be, and the target audiences own account of the history of the blues being so different from the mythology mostly p...

    Seeing colossal blues hero Robert Johnson on the cover of Elijah Wald s Escaping the Delta made me pause with doubt because what I certainly was not in the market for was another feverish bio of Robert Johnson that focused on the mystical to the exclusion of all else Most pleasantly, this is definitely not the case with this interesting and readable work.The book starts slowly as author Wald consumes nearly seventy pages with an exhaustive...
