        London GB Plays organ, harpsichord, piano.
        Well researched and edited.
        So thick a volume, it's hard to keep it open on the music desk.

        Musicroom Reviews

        This is an excellent monograph on one of the pioneers of blues piano, combining detailed biographical information and a detailed analysis of 40 works with full-length playable transcriptions of very satisfactory detail and fullness of sound, none of the usual simplified samplers. A delightful book for the advanced player. One snag though - at over 400 pages the volume is difficult to keep in place on an upright piano.
