In 100 Books Every Blues Fan Should Own, blues scholars Edward Komara and Greg Johnson select those histories, biographies, surveys, transcriptions and studies from the many hundreds of works that have been published about this vital American musical genre, providing short descriptions of the contents and evaluations of the achievements of the titles selected for their "Blues 100." Entries include bibliographic data, pricing, and physical descriptions.
