Blues music was developed at the beginning of the twentieth century by rural black musicians. They shaped it with brilliant inspiration from disparate elements of black song. By the early 1920s recorded urban performers solidified the standard three-verse, 12 bar meter structure that has identified most blues. The blues revival of the early 1960s brought many of these survivors to the forefront of traditional music. The rare footage presented in this series is a treasure beyond imagining, drawn from a myriad of sources, depicting some of the greatest blues musicians who ever lived
