    Review: Stefan Grossman delivers. I've been learning from Stefan Grossman's publications and recordings for more years than I can remember. In this publication, you get background on Blind Blake's music and life as well as many enjoyable tunes to play. What's better? Getting a CD of original recordings! Hours of enjoyment listening, learning and playing. – Z On/Amazon Customer Review

    Review: Blind Blake plays a fast and melodic style of rag type blues. Blake's finger picking method is unique and a challenge to master. This book and the CD gives an overview of songs in various Blake styles to give a broad understanding of the methods used over his recording career. Highly recommendable to those wishing to begin learning Blake's music. – D. Smith/Amazon Customer Review
