This vivid oral snapshot of an America that planted the blues is full of rhythmic grace. From the son of a sharecropper to an itinerant bluesman, Honeyboy's stories of good friends Charlie Patton, Big Walter Horton, Little Walter Jacobs, and Robert Johnson are a godsend to blues fans. History buffs will marvel at his unique perspective and firsthand accounts of the 1927 Mississippi River flood, vagrancy laws, makeshift courts in the back of seed stores, plantation life, and the Depression.

World Don’t Owe Me Nothing – David Honeyboy Edwards

Written by Janis Martinson, but giving the impression it is written by the man in the title, this story of his life is patched together from interviews and taped conversations with Honeyboy over the years from his beginnings on the banks of the Delta, through to his chats with world class Blues contemporaries like Blind Lemon Jefferson. The work is interspersed with stunning photographs and, in places, reads just as if Honeyboy is talking to you there and then – almost like an extended Blues song. Reading it brings the reader a notion of the Blues that makes him feel as though he’s on a train or in a rocking chair, and the raw trueness of the language rocks you along. Five star reading.
