«A vibrant account of a bygone era when blues and gospel were at their artistic zenith. . . . <i>Blues before Sunrise 2</i> is sure to long stand as a prime research source for Chicago bluesaholics." --<i>ARSC Journal</i>»

«. . . it would be difficult to find a figure more responsible for introducing a deeper appreciation of the blues to a wider audience. <i>Blues Before Sunrise: Interviews From The Chicago Scene</i> is not a casual book about the Chicago blues scene, but it is an indispensable one for hardcore fans and scholars." --<i>Chicago Blues Guide</i>»

«Cushing has provided a massive public service ... with this enthralling volume."--<i>Juke Blues 69</i>»

«Captures ... lightning in twelve different bottles.--<i>Notes</i>»

«Cushing's interviews are among the best I have ever read. <i>Blues Before Sunrise</i> appeals to blues fans, media scholars, and any reader who appreciates regional voices and good old-fashioned storytelling."--Barry Lee Pearson, coauthor of <i>Robert Johnson: Lost and Found</i>»

«Sure to fascinate and delight both scholars and general readers, these interviews are full of wonderful material, including some bombshells about who really wrote hit blues songs."--Steve Cheseborough, blues performer and author of <i>Blues Traveling: The Holy Sites of Delta Blues</i>»

«The book is an unqualified "must have" for any blues fan interested in the history of the music."--<i>About.com: Blues</i>»
