Description

The Rough Guide to Blues And Beyond is a testament to the enduring power and continuous evolution of the blues, vigorous enough to absorb rock, rap, electronic and global influences, while keeping alive its true spirit.

Of all the great white blues-rock bands to emerge in the late 1960s, Led Zeppelin stand supreme. In Robert Plant they had a vocalist who could rock as hard as anyone but who never sounded better than when singing electrified, updated versions of pre-war blues songs. Linking up with Justin Adams, 'Win My Train Fair Home' is a fusion of Mississippi and West African blues styles. Justin Adams has also been praised for his recent work as Tinariwen's producer. Based on the fringes of the Sahara desert in Mali, the former band of Tuareg rebel warriors known as Tinariwen famously swapped their rifles for electric guitars. Their snaking rhythms and their affinity for blues of the Mississippi Delta is evident. Coldplay's Chris Martin has also cited them as an influence.

The blues has moved way beyond its roots to become a multifaceted international form that is vigorous and strong enough to absorb rock, rap, electronic and global influences and still retain its original core values. The Rough Guide To Blues And Beyond was complied by Nigel Williamson, author of The Rough Guide to Blues book.
