    Soft cover copy of BLUES & CHAOS: THE MUSIC WRITING OF ROBERT PALMER signed by Augusta Palmer, filmmaker and daughter of Robert Palmer.

    This amazing collection, edited by Anthony DeCurtis features the work of Robert Palmer, member of the Memphis Country Blues Society and writer for The New York Times and Rolling Stone. The Memphis Flyer wrote:
    "The breadth of genres and artists covered in Blues & Chaos can be astonishing." The Patriot Ledger said, "If you're a junkie for great music writing, you owe it to yourself to pick up Blues & Chaos. Lovingly edited and assembled . . . this anthology does much to highlight Palmer's curiosity and enthusiasm as well as his scholarship."
