Adam Gussow: Mr. Satan's Apprentice: A Blues Memoir (Pantheon)

Ted Drozdowski, The Boston Phoenix, 25 January 1999

NO, AUTHOR Adam Gussow hasn't sold his soul to Ol' Nick for wealth, fame, and power. Just the opposite, in fact, is the usual blues player's lot. And as the subtitle makes clear, Gussow is a blues man. This book is an account of the path he took to discover the heart of his music – or at least the music he adopted and took to his heart.
