Recording the Blues, by Robert Dixon and John Godrich, authors of the Blues and Gospel Discography. This book was published by Stein and Day in 1970 as part of Paul Oliver’s Blues Series of books.
It tells the stories of the first generation of blues recording artists and record companies from the vaudeville and country blues of the 1920s to the urban blues and record industry restructuring of the mid 1940s. A classic for anyone interested in the history of blues music.
