Leadbelly: A Life In Pictures

A founding father of blues and a very influential figure for bands as varied as Led Zeppelin and Nirvana, Leadbelly lived his life to the absolute fullest (including singing his way out of prison after apparently murdering someone!) A new book of photographs and pictures commemorates his life in meticulous detail. This beautifully bound hard back book contains a ‘treasure trove of rare unpublished family and other photographs, news clippings, concert programs, personal correspondence (including letters from Woody Guthrie), record albums, awards, and other memorabilia.’ Forget the White Stripes, go an buy a Leadbelly CD. You won’t regret it, As the late, great George Harrison is quoted as saying in the book ‘No Lead Belly, no Beatles’. Need we say more.
