Description - The Voice of the Blues by Jim O'Neal

The Voice of the Blues brings together lengthy interviews with many pioneering blues performers including Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, B.B. King, and many other key figures in the blues movement. These interviews cover not only their lives and times; they give in-depth discussions and analysis of their musical achievements as well. Each interview captures the 'voice' of the blues performer, reflecting life experiences, musical influences, and achievements. These unique, comprehensive interviews first appeared in the pages of Living Blues magazine, but have never been previously collected in book form. Illustrations include rare archival photographs and documents. A must for fans of the blues-both traditional and electric.

Author Biography - Jim O'Neal

Jim O'Neal and Amy Van Singel were co-founders publishers, and editors of Living Blues magazine from 1970-87. In this capacity, they interviewed many of the most famous blues musicians on the Chicago and international scene. The magazine helped launch and sustain the blues revival, focusing on living bluesmen, as opposed to more scholarly journals that focused on blues history. O'Neill and Van Singel live in Kansas City, Missouri.
