I Hear You Knockin - offers first hand stories by the musical stars of the period - giving the reader insight into the struggles,
the highs and lows as well as the achievements of the individuals who made great music throughout that time and still lives
on through their legacy.

Very similar in vein the Rhythm and Blues in New Orleans. Many less renown performers are discussed as well as the unique sound of NOLA.

This book has been a long time favorite of mine covering a relatively short (but vital) part of American music. Published originally in 1985, it is probably the most readable and accurate account of this New Orleans genre. Several other books have been published with this subject matter covered within, but few have focused directly on the heyday of the Rhythm and Blues sounds from the city. "Up From the Cradle of Jazz" is another great (but less focused) book about post WW-II music from the city. That one perhaps could be considered a good read if you really want to dig a little deeper into the different genres of music of that time, but I Hear You Knockin' is incredibly readable and as Hannusch says in his intro, the repeating of facts really serves to reiterate points than just sloppy writing. A little more candid and casual prose allows for the mood of the city to flow throughout. Jeff Hannusch's book is required reading even for those simply interested in pop music in the 20th century. Most importantly, it makes you want to acquire a better record collection to fill in some gaps. It'll be some time before another book comes out to take this one's place; so far no others have come close.
