Lost Highway: Journeys and Arrivals of American Musicians

Lost Highway: Journeys and Arrivals of American Musicians

Peter Guralnick


This masterful exploration of American roots music--country, rockabilly, and the blues--spotlights the artists who created a noticeably American sound, together with Ernest Tubb, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Elvis Presley, Merle Haggard, and Sleepy LaBeef. In incisive photos in keeping with looking interviews with those mythical performers, Peter Guralnick captures the boundless ardour that drove those males to music-making and that saved them determinedly, and infrequently virtually desperately, at the street.
