Blues and Evil


177 pages
The University of Tennessee Press

The term 'blues' has traditionally conveyed an image of hard living, hard drinking, carousing singers and musicians grinding out melancholy tunes and evil lyrics. Contesting that stereotypical notion, this study argues that spiritual values are clearly reflected in the blues's mythologized history, folk-theological language, and philosophical speculation on the dual existence of good and evil.
