The Blues A Musical Journey: Red, White & Blues

The story of British blues. On the face of it, Beck and Jones lack the credibility of your Blind Lemons, et al, but Figgis's contribution to the series is very lively, with a sparky jam session at Abbey Road bringing in Van Morrison and Lulu, and often funny reminiscences about the impossibly factionalised British advocates for blues, R&B and skiffle in the 1960s.
