Re: Blues encyclopedia?
I've never actually heard of a "Blues Encyclopedia", but I highly recommend the following books from 10-12 years ago..."Nothing But The Blues" by Lawrence Cohn, and "Blues Odyssey" by Bill Wyman. Some older books are the classics "Deep Blues" by Robert Palmer, "The Story of the Blues" and "Blues Off the Record" both by Paul Oliver. All are great reading. If such an encyclopedia does exist I would get it for sure.
