American musicologist and social historian Robert Palmer hit the road during the 1970s to research a book on the music he loved: The Blues. He travelled the length of the United States, visiting the farms and plantations where the Blues was born, interviewing those who were there (or their immediate successors), travelled the migration routes on which African Americans fled Northwards,. Robert Palmer was the New York Times‘s first full-time rock writer and chief pop critic (1976–1988) and has been a contributing editor at Rolling Stone since the early seventies.He has taught courses in American music at Yale, Carnegie-Mellon, Bowdoin, the University of Mississippi, and Brooklyn College, where he was the first senior research fellow of the Institute for Studies in American.

In what amounts to a state-of-the-art field recording, Robert Palmer (author of Deep Blues, one of the finest books ever written on the subject) took a 24 track mobile unit into the Delta and came back with ample recorded proof that the low-down, jukejoint brand of Mississippi blues is still alive, well, and flourishing. No famous names, just loads of incredible music. With fidelity so true you can hear the beer bottles clinking on the tables, all live blues recordings should sound this exciting. A new standard of excellence.
