In The Belly Of The Blues

In The Belly Of The Blues Chicago to Boston to L.A. 1969 to 1983. A memoir. By Terry Abrahamson.

"I took these photos were taken between 1969 and 1983 with a Kodak Instamatic and flashcubes, a Minolta SLR and a mini-Chinon with Lincoln Continental suicide doors. Some were sent out for processing at corner drugstores. Some were processed and printed by me in darkrooms in Boston. Most of the musicians on these pages are gone, and we won't see their kind again. But they should be remembered and celebrated. They're part of American history, and bricks in the foundation of Rock and Roll. We can't fill their shoes, but we can dance in their big, big footprints." --Terry Abrahamson, 2012
