In this innovatory book the celebrated writer on the blues, Paul Oliver, rediscovers the wealth of neglected vocal traditions presented on Race records. When blues first reached a large audience it was through the 'Race records' issued specifically for black purchasers in the 1920s. Blues South have been extensively discussed by many writers. Paul Oliver shows that this emphasis has drawn attention away from the other important vocal traditions also available on Race records: the songs of Southern rural dances, the comic and social songs and ballads of the medicine shows and travelling entertainments, and, even more neglected, the sacred vocal traditions, from the song-sermons of the Baptist and Sanctified preachers to the gospel songs of the church congregations and of the 'jack-leg' preachers and street evangelists. Over 500 artists and 700 song titles are indexed and there is a guide to reissued recordings.

Both well written and well researched, this book posits that commercial recordings - specifically "race" records made primarily from the late 1920s to the early 1930s - were a vital and important means of communicating folk traditions. Mr. Oliver's looks at both secular and religious recordings (particularly sermons), and provides insightful and deeply informed analysis of both. For those interested in blues, or American music in general,this is an extremely informative book,and I recommend it highly.

It is a crime that this wonderful book is not available in an inexpensive edition but only in a collectible price because it is effectively out of print.
It provides a real history of the music that preceded the Blues and Dorsey-based Gospel in and outside of the recording music and makes an essential contribution to the history of the Blues and African American music in the 1880-1930 period. Oliver speaks about factors left out of most discussion of the Blues. For example, he surveys the very large repertoire of Ragtime and pseudo ragtime tunes that were part of the repertoire of early Blues singers and he suggests how this music may have been one of the initial building blocks of the blues. Oliver also discusses the wave of Black Southern vernacular dances that conquered the South and much of the nation in the early 20th century which were key to the development of new Black musics in those years.

When you first read this, you will wish you had bought this book sooner!

Anything by Oliver is worth the read if you want to know about the jazz/blues. Interesting anecdotes and observations from one who met and talked to those he writes about.
