The World Don't Owe Me Nothing: The Life and Times of Delta Bluesman Honeyboy Edwards

Synopsis

This vivid oral snapshot of an America that planted the blues is full of rhythmic grace. From the son of a sharecropper to an itinerant bluesman, Honeyboy's stories of good friends Charlie Patton, Big Walter Horton, Little Walter Jacobs, and Robert Johnson are a godsend to blues fans. History buffs will marvel at his unique perspective and firsthand accounts of the 1927 Mississippi River floo, vagrancy laws, makeshift courts in the back of seed stores, plantation life and the Depression.
