Tammy L. Turner holds a doctoral degree in music history from the University of Mississippi. She teaches a variety of university courses in music history. Her area of interest is twentieth-century music including blues, jazz, rock 'n' roll, and classical music.
Turner has done us a great service in shining a light both on Dick Waterman's life and, in turn, on the reawakening of the blues from the 1960s on. It's one of the most enjoyable music books I've read and deserves to be in the hands of every blues fan, indeed, of every music fan.--Down at the Crossroads
