  1. Another fabulous in-depth piece from top music writer Paul Merry. If you like Paul’s writing style and undeniable talent for getting to the nub of any musical subject, then you simply must read America’s Gift, available on Amazon. I’ve spent a lifetime reading books on various genres and their main exponents, but have to say that America’s Gift takes some beating. I couldn’t put it down, and one of the pleasing aspects of Paul’s diligent research is that he resists the temptation to simply journey down those well-known highways of the blues, instead often turns off the main drag down any number of back roads to uncover facts of which most people are unaware. Packed with hitherto unknown facts, and with the text neatly complemented by archive shots, this is a book that no music lover should be without.
