“It was among the black population of America’s rural southern states during the late 1800’s that the real birth of the Blues took place. Fast forward to the 1940s/early ‘50s and this no-punches-pulled musical expression reflecting the hopes, dreams, fears and events – good or bad – of everyday life supported a thriving, sizeable niche record business. Song subject matter had naturally been updated and dance tempos were now a key Blues ingredient, but its shattering honesty, joy or despair, bravado or laid-bare emotion remained to thrill and chill.” (John Tracy)
