THE OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY

Last Sunday, June 17, the Observer Music Monthly ran a small round-up item on the book, as follows:

Hand Me My Travelin’ Shoes - By Michael Gray (Bloomsbury) £25 ‘Nobody can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell,’ sang Bob Dylan. Part biography/part travelogue, this is a fascinating exploration of the life of the Georgia bluesman from the great Dylanologist.”
