Publisher Synopsis: Professor King does an excellent job in deconstructing the blues message, which deflects inquiry into just how poorly the now-venerated "classic" [and mostly deceased] blues musicians were treated in their lifetimes, being poorly paid and kept in perpetual debt by the sharecropper system, denied health care, and frequently buried in unmarked graves. Blues fans believing they know blues history will be surprised by the fabrications and half-truths associated with the genre, as uncovered by semiotic analysis of the many code words, metaphors, similes, and folk tales that have become part of blues tourism culture.
