LOST HIGHWAY spotlights Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Merle Haggard, and others in a tribute to American country music, the blues, and their revolutionary offspring, rockabilly. "You put the book down feeling that its sweep is vast, that you have read of giants who walked among us".Lester Bangs, LOS ANGELES HERALD EXAMINER. 140 photos.
Published in 1971 and 1979, respectively, these titles continue Guralnick's analysis of American music. Feel Like Going Home concentrates primarily on blues artists, with some borderline rockers thrown in, while Lost Highway covers a wide array of artists from several genres, including everyone from Hank Snow to Elvis to Merle Haggard. Both volumes were hits with critics and have a place in popular music collections. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
