Getting Started with Rhythm and Blues
In the BGSU Libraries Catalog, use the following subject searches:
- Rhythm and Blues Music
- Rhythm and Blues Musicians
- Rhythm and Blues Criticism
- Rhythm and Blues History
Try limiting your search to the material type you are looking for (i.e. books, sound recordings, scores).
To find books about rhythm and blues musicians or performers, try a SUBJECT search of the individual's name (Last name, First name).
You can also limit your search results by designating a specific material type, such as sound recording or musical score.
Note: Many albums have excellent historical and biographical notes, and lyrics are frequently included on containers or inner liners.
