  • Produced by Martin Scorsese and helmed by seven major film directors (including Clint Eastwood, Wim Wenders, and Charles Burnett), this lavish seven-part collection traces the history of the blues, and was originally aired on PBS. Beginning by discovering the earliest recorded works of the blues from the 1920s, and ending with the influence and sound of the blues on contemporary music, this comprehensive guide is the definitive word on the genre. Some incredible footage has been unearthed, including interviews, behind the scenes material, and electrifying performances from artists including Otis Rush, Ray Charles, B.B. King, and many others. A classic collection for the connoisseur of the blues, or the perfect place to start for those who want to learn more about this uniquely American genre of music.
