Like no other book before, his fully explores Kings rich life and career and complements Blues All Around Me, Kings moving autobiography. With objectivity and careful perspective he introduces key figures in Kings biography and draws on many printed sources, published interviews, and his own recurring encounters with King and his manager. This portrait shows a life that has conformed to the traditional image of the blues singer: early years of poverty and hardship in the American South, a backdrop of cotton fields and the muddy Mississippi, a musical apprenticeship in the big city (Memphis), and a career that peaks under the spotlights of Las Vegas.
