Feel Like Going Home

Portraits in Blues and Rock 'n' Roll

This vivid celebration of blues and early rock ‘n’ roll includes some of the first and most illuminating profiles of such blues masters as Muddy Waters, Skip James, and Howlin’ Wolf; excursions into the blues-based Memphis rock ‘n’ roll of Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, and the Sun record label; and a brilliant depiction of the bustling Chicago blues scene and the legendary Chess record label in its final days. With unique insight and unparalleled access, Peter Guralnick brings to life the people, the songs, and the performance that forever changed not only the American music scene but America itself.

Praise

"Guralnick has a lover's passion, a novelist's sensitivity to nuances of character and event, a musician's ear, a historian's insatiable appetite for detail and fact: all these attributes wedded to a fan's devotion to the music which moves him, and a critic's questing instinct for the how and why of the music's emotional impact....Feel Like Going Home brings it back alive better than any book of its kind ever published."—Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express
"One of the finest books ever to appear on the subject of American musicians. . . . It is an original, brilliant, and most important, passionate account of American music, told in a way that it hasn't been told before."—Jon Landau, Boston Phoenix
"The author cuts so close to the bone you almost want to turn away for fear of learning what you don't want to know. Essential reading."—David McGee, Record World
