Pressestimmen

"Jimmy Rogers was the most under-appreciated of all the postwar Chicago blues pioneers--until now. Deep, heartfelt, and immaculately researched, Blues All Day Long sets the record straight. A major contribution to blues lore."
--Jas Obrecht, former editor, Guitar Player magazine


"A great read. I loved it. What a nice tribute to the great Jimmy Rogers."
--Charlie Musselwhite


"Great work. Long, long overdue."
--Taj Mahal


"Great work. Long, long overdue."--Taj Mahal
"For blues aficionados, Goins provides a wealth of information on one of the underacknowledged masters of the Chicago sound."--"Kirkus"

"Wayne Everett Goins hasn't simply written a long-overdue biographical portrait of one of modern blues' most influential and gifted stylists; he's given us the context as well, with vivid, indelibly limned vignettes. . . . It brings to life not just musical history, but the feel, flavor and emotional resonance of the times during which this history was lived."--"Living Blues"

HASH(0x914da7bc) von 5 Sternen were just wild and serious young musicians determined to perfect their sound and broadcast it to the world 22. August 2014
Von Adam Gussow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's an incredible book. It does in its own way what CADILLAC RECORDS does in a slightly different way: it puts you in the shoes of Muddy and Jimmy as they arrive in Chicago from Mississippi: two young guys on the make, hungry to birth the new music they've got banging around in their heads, rehearsing nonstop in their apartment, and then tumbling onto the street, heading down to Maxwell Street, and kicking ass as the tips pour in. He shows you the romance and the musical seriousness. It was a revelation to realize that two Chicago legends, before they were legends, were just wild and serious young musicians determined to perfect their sound and broadcast it to the world. I was amazed at how many new shades Goins added to the story, even as he captured that deep and powerful impulse. He interviewed a lot of people--white musicians, too, from the early days as well as later days--and he takes you through every phase of Rogers's story, from first to last. He evokes Chicago's tumultuous racial dynamics without ever making race more of the point of the story than it needs to be. This is a book about MUSICIANS, pure and simple. You won't be able to put the book down.

HASH(0x914ddd74) von 5 Sternen Good book on Jimmy Rogers' later years 4. März 2015
Von Bob777 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A welcome addition to the knowledge base of Chicago blues. Information is short on the early sections of his life, complicated by the fact that Jimmy lived with grandparents, rather than his parents and even his last name changes at one point. The history of the Muddy Waters years roughly duplicates what is already available in books on Muddy.

Where the book really adds to things is showing what happened to Jimmy after the Muddy period. The 60s when he was largely absent from the scene. His return in the late 60s that grew eventually into wider recognition by the time of his death. Fascinating information gathered from interviews with people who played with Jimmy in later years (Kim Wilson, Mark Hummel, Nick Moss and many, many others).

A real revelation to me is what happened to Bob Riedy who was everywhere on the Chicago scene in the early 70s and then just seemed to disappear. Riedy offers a lot of info on that period of the 70s that fills a gap and it is nice to know what finally happened with him. If you are curious about Jimmy's music, go see a Nick Moss show. Although he has expanded past that Chicago traditional sound, if you ask real nice, I'm sure he will still do you a couple numbers in the classic style. (Moss played briefly with Jimmy in the later years.)

Well researched book!

HASH(0x914dd33c) von 5 Sternen Good piece of work; good reading. 25. August 2014
Von Christopher B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Jazz historian Wayne Goins’ “Blues All Day Long” is an excellently written biography of Jimmy Rogers (1924-1997), who, starting in the mid 1940’s, was one of the leaders in the Chicago-style Blues movement. Although he is not as well known as Muddy Waters, the originator of the style, Jimmy was influential in its development.
In “Blues,” we meet numerous other Blues musicians, and learn, among other things, the instruments they played (many of them played several), whom they played with, the names of their bands, where they played, what the life of the Chicago night-club musician was like, and how the race recording business operated.
Despite the amazing amount of information packed into each sentence, “Blues” is well written and easily readable. Its 316 page text is fully documented with endnotes, an extensive discography, an impressive list of people interviewed (91), a lengthy bibliography, and a comprehensive index. No wonder it took Goins seven years to research and write it.
Read “Blues All Day Long” for an understanding of Jimmy Rogers’ personality, life, and contribution to the Blues movement.

HASH(0x914e0f48) von 5 Sternen Great book with a few faults 4. Februar 2015
Von Tommy Forsgren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In general,a long-missing piece of the puzzle that made Muddy Waters` ground-breaking band with Little Walter and Jimmy Rogers such a great - and influential music piece.Two major errors,however,stops me from giving this book 5 stars.First,Bob Riedy and his story of how the Rolling Stones got to hear the Chicago Blues - it was not by help of sailors on boats having bought records from Bob Koester and Jazzmart in Chicago:matter of the business was that Mick Jagger ordered Chess records from their mail order.And the Rolling Stones came from Richmond,outside London - not from Liverpool(that city was the Beatles`home turf).The photo section of the book mistakenly identifies Left Hand Frank as Johnny Littlejohn.Possibly these errors could be rectified in a later printing - because the rest of it is quite charming!

HASH(0x914e20fc) von 5 Sternen Chicago Blues Manna from Heaven 13. Oktober 2014
Von mark hummel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm in the process of reading BLUES ALL DAY LONG. Well written, most facts are straight & great stories- Wayne did an excellent job of researching the facts, interviewing almost everybody you can think of in the Chicago Blues world & keeping in moving. I'm so interested in the subject matter it's pretty hard to put down. Goins gives a lively portrait of the scene in Chicago in the 40s & 50s. Gives you pretty good idea of what Jimmy was like( I got to work a ten day tour in 92 with him).
