I have leafed through a copy.  It's just what the name implies - a
lot of pictures of blues album covers, mainly from the late 50s and
60s.  A lot of the albums were UK reissues of Chess and other US
originals.  There's a bit of information about the artist and album
with each picture. There were some reasonably rare albums but I was a
bit disappointed that more of these weren't included.   EW
