Lost Delta found : rediscovering the Fisk University-Library of Congress Coahoma County study, 1941-1942 by John W Work( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 469 libraries worldwide
When the Alan Lomax text "The Land Where the Blues Began" was published in 1993, the project study of 1941 and 1942 visits to the Mississippi Delta contained inaccuracies and ignored social issues. Here Robert Gordon uncovers the work of Fisk University's African American scholars who accompanied him: composer and musicologist John W. Work, sociologist Lewis Wade Jones, and graduate student Samuel C. Adams, Jr. These three men captured interviews, notes, and musical transcriptions that reveal an important alternative perspective on Lomax's work in the Delta region. Their work unveils place, religion, social justice issues, and a way of life that is woven into a rich musical heritage
It came from Memphis by Robert Gordon( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 400 libraries worldwide
Unlike previous books about Memphis, this one does not focus on Elvis Presley, Al Green, Sun and Stax studios. Instead, It Came from Memphis prefers the shadows cast by these institutions, focusing on artists like Jim Dickinson and Alex Chilton, and bands like Mud Boy and the Neutrons, the Mar-Keys, and Big Star. The result is an anecdotal, digressive, thoroughly informative and entertaining history of rock and roll's hometown
