Subject: RE: A Basic Folk Library
And if you are looking for a book on the blues, don't go past Lawrence Cohn (Ed) 'Nothing But the Blues: The Music and the Musicians' Abbeville Press 1993. Paperback edition ISBN 0-7892-0607-2. It has the appearance of a large coffee table book but, in content, it is nothing of the sort. It has excellent photos and essays by Sam Charters, Dave Evans, Dick Spottswood, Charles Wolfe, Mark Humphrey etc.
