Description by

Defining the blues is a simple task: a basic I-IV-V chord progression laid over a 12-bar framework, however the blues have evolved from African-American field hollers through rough-hewn rural heavyweights such as Blind Lemon Jefferson to the immaculate guitar excursions of B.B. King. The Story Of The Blues traces the four principal traditions of blues music: Blues Form - Country Blues - Urban Blues - Electric Blues and it's significant contribution to the development of jazz, rock music, and country and western music. This DVD includes tracks from Big Bill Broonzy, Robert Johnson, Lonnie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Texas Alexander, and many more.
