Memphis Minnie Woman With Guitar - New Edition

Originally published in 1992 and now long out of print, a revised and expanded edition due in April.

The original was $15 and this appears to be cheaper, just.

I haven't got this book.  Does it come recommended?  Mark Lamarr's great short on the fabulous Memphis Minnie, "She wasn't from Memphis, and she wasn't called Minnie" irresistible.

Got the book and it does a fine job of telling her story with the slant that is common to the author which I like.  Having never read the original I am not so sure about how it was improved but the research is thorough and the reader gets a good look into her career, times and life IMHO.
