Chicago Blues As Seen From The Inside: The Photographs of Raeburn Flerlage BOOK

Chicago Blues As Seen From The Inside: The Photographs of Raeburn Flerlage BOOK A stunning collection of photographs from Chicago's foremost blues photographer When Raeburn Flerlage was asked to take a picture of Memphis Slim in 1959, he began a career that would produce some of the most fascinating and important photos ever taken of blues musicians. By shooting concert performances, studio sessions, interviews, and club shows, he became a fixture of the Chicago blues scene during the 1960s and early 70s, and captured some of America's greatest blues artists at the pinnacle of their careers: Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Otis Spann, James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, Son House, and many more. Here, for the first time, are Raeburn's greatest photos, reproduced in a beautiful format. From Howlin' Wolf performing at legendary Pepper's lounge to Otis Spann and James Cotton playing in Muddy Waters' basement, these pictures bring to life one of the most incredible periods in American musical history, and will make you feel like you're right there in that smoky bar, listening.
