Rhythm and Blues in New Orleans by John J. Broven, Tom Stagg

Rhythm and Blues in New Orleans is a comprehensive history documenting the rise and development of a unique musical form. This 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 first-hand from the musicians who helped create Rhythm and Blues as a musical genre. The book features such R & B stars as Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Professor Longhair, Huey Piano Smith, and Little Richard. More than 100 photographs and illustrations are included, along with a complete appendix featuring a list of best-selling records produced in New Orleans.
