I preferred the one about jazz, and opera, but still, we learn a great deal with this one.

Comprehensive if somewhat dated overview of blues, blues subgenres, and blues musicians. Clearly explains what blues is, how it differs from other musical styles, and its relationship to R&B, rock & roll, and other musical styles. Great starting place for learning about this important musical genre. Comes with a CD of classic blues tracks.
