Description
In the 1920s, engineers from Okeh and Columbia Records took to the road and set up makeshift recording studios in cities like Dallas, Atlanta, and New Orleans. They brought in street singers, medicine show performers, and pianists from local juke joints and barrelhouses, capturing music from Southern work camps, prison farms, and vaudeville shows that otherwise would have been lost to us. A collector and writer on the blues since 1951, Paul Oliver uncovers these folk traditions—which he argues were the true roots of the blues that were to emerge from the Mississippi Delta—and the circumstances under which they were recorded. He examines the writings of Alain Locke and the recordings themselves to profile the forefathers of the blues.
