More About Blues All Around Me by B. B. King; David Ritz
 
 
 
Overview
"A treasure trove of information...told with real feeling." --Washington Post Book World

"Charming...honest...transcendent.... It reads like a warm and lengthy conversation with a close friend." --Billboard

The undisputed king of the blues, B.B. King puts his life into words in a story that spans tragedy, triumph, and everything in between--and he tells it just how he plays it, straight from the heart. A true-to-life tale of overcoming monumental odds to succeed as an artist in an often unfriendly world, Blues All Around Me is also the story of how blues music changed during its migration from the Mississippi Delta to urban areas such as Chicago. Rolling Stone calls B.B.'s memoir a "very American success story told] with the lyricism and leisurely pace of a born storyteller."
