"No one can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell."The great pre-war blues musician Blind Willie McTell was one of the most gifted artists of his generation, with an exquisite voice and a sublime talen for the 12-string guitar. Yet he never achieved stardom, and until now little has been written about his extraordinary life.
"Gray's wonderful book...brings to light not just an elusive artist but a lost world."
"Not just an authoritative portrait of the great bluesman, but a vivid history of the South... Gray gives brilliantly evocative descriptions of the backwaters he visits and the people he meets. *****"
