By itself, BLUES JOURNEY is an enticing and provocative book. Once you've heard this recording, however, it will be impossible to consider it complete without the voice and music of Richard Allen. With the same articulation that Myers brings to his discussion of the evolution of the blues as a musical form, Allen brings depth to the poetry; he evokes the pain or joy of each poem through his deliberate, soulful reading and expressive musical accompaniment. This is a total experience, and the listener comes away wiser, richer, and uplifted. A.R. 2006 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
