I don't really know of any books, but there is a movie/documentary made by scorcese called "Lightning in a Bottle" about the history of the blues. I've never seen it, but i've seen clips and i've heard good things about it.

Its incredible. Not much for history but a great concert.

Don't want to be an actor pretending on the stage
Don't want to be a writer with my thoughts out on the page
Don't want to be a painter 'cause everyone comes to look
Don't want to be anything where my life's an open book

I have a book called Escaping the Delta, it's somewhat of a biography of Robert Johnson, but much of the book is about the history of blues.
