I'd Rather Be the Devil
is about as thorough a biography one will find of the guarded blues legend Skip James and his music.
Author Stephen Calt interviewed James before his death in 1969. Along with the interviews, Calt provides brilliant analyses of James and his music, helping to bring a little more clarity to this blues enigma. Fascinating, disturbing and sometimes cold, I'd Rather Be the Devil is a must read for all fans of Skip James and the Blues.
