Paul  Oliver • The Story of Blues, Barrie & Jenkins, Λονδίνο 1969

Η ιστορία του bluesΑνατρέχοντας στις προσωπικές ιστορίες των μαύρων, ανδρών και γυναικών, που τραγούδησαν στις βαμβακοφυτείες ή τα μαγαζιά του Σικάγο, στις εκκλησίες, στις γωνίες των δρόμων ή στα μικρόφωνα των δισκογραφικών εταιριών, από τα τέλη του προηγούμενου αιώνα ώς τα σήμερα, ο Πωλ Όλιβερ καταγράφει την πορεία και την εξέλιξη του μπλουζ από τη γέννησή του ώς τη στιγμή που αποσπάστηκε από τον περιθωριοποιημένο κόσμο της μαύρης κοινότητας για να γίνει πηγή έμπνευσης της μουσικής του δυτικού κόσμου.

He is one of the world’s leading authorities on the blues. Among his many publications are Blues Fell This Morning, The Story of the Blues, and Blues Off the Record.

Paul Oliver is one of the world's leading authorities and writer on the history of the blues. From an early age he collected blues records and books on the blues, publishing his first article in 1951. Since that time he has published 13 books on the history of the blues and blues music including The Story of the Blues, Blues Fell This Morning, Conversation with the Blues, and Blues Off The Record.  His work also includes interviews, field work and research in recording and printed sources tracing the origin and development of African American music and culture from the time of slavery through to the Twentieth Century. This work, known as "The Paul Oliver Collection of African American Music & Related Traditions" is held on a custodial basis at The University of Gloucestershire, England, by agreement with the European Blues Association and Paul Oliver. It represents an enormously valuable resource in teaching and research and is of international significance.
