Thirty-five years have now come and gone since the 'rediscoveries' of the blues revival startled us with their corporeal presence. IT seems little short of miraculous that so many of the greatest pre-War bluesman were found ready, willing, and able to recreate the passion of their youth's music for a moving Last Hurrah. Now they are, to a man, gone, making the window which briefly shown into their world all the more precious. That these men were filmed in performance is fortuitous for us today; they need no longer be disembodied voices.

As a genre, blues music was developed at the beginning of the twentieth century by rural black musicians. They shaped it with brilliant inspiration from disparate elements of black song. By the early 1920's, recorded urban performers solidified the standard three-verse, 12 bar meter structure that has identified most blues. Fortunately, during that same period , there were recorded musicians who grew up with the blues and whose guitar-styles were more fluid and improvisational.
