Originally published in Great Britain under the title Walking to New Orleans, this 249-page volume examines the careers and music of the major R&B artists, as well as the important peripheral activity of the New Orleans music industry: recording studios, clubs, and record companies. Much of the material comes firsthand from the musicians who helped create Rhythm and Blues as a musical genre. The book features such R&B stars Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Professor Longhair, Huey Piano Smith, Wardell Quezergue, and Little Richard. Nearly one hundred photographs are included, along with a complete appendix featuring a list of best-selling records produced in New Orleans.
