from the manufacturer

From a childhood spent among such key roots-music figures as Bob Wills and Big Joe Turner, and an extended dual career as a musician and journalist, Michael H. Price has forged this frenzied chronicle of life among the denizens of the vanishing borderlands of Texas indigenous music scene over the past half-century. Says RECORD COLLECTOR magazine: Evocative and compelling. Adds BLUES and RHYTHM magazine: A Garrison Keillor of rock and roll. . . much to enjoy. And from NO DEPRESSION magazine: A bizarre artifact! . . . A definitive history of Fort Worths fabled Bluebird Nite Club, . . . and everything you really need to know about Fort Worths would-be music industry supremo, Major Bill Smith. The tribute to nearly forgotten black movie actor Mantan Moreland is a revelation. . . His chapter on Austin barrelhouse piano master Robert Shaw is affectionate and fact-filled. . . For anyone with a strong interest in Texas music. And from JUKE BLUES magazine: A common thread: There were, and still are, many artists working away at their craft, ignoring popular trends and defying the commercial mainstream. Long may they thrive.
