Canadian Blues is the second in a series of reference and collectors guides from Rock My World Canada! This guide contains all things Canadian Blues. This issue contains 215 full colour pages, over 700 artists and nearly 2800 album covers. Although it is not a full discography of each artist, collectors may find this a valuable resource and starting point when on the search for Canadian blues artists. New in this guide are lists of blues festivals, societies, record labels and for those that like live music, there is now an Autograph page.
Gary Kendall, from the legendary Downchild Blues Band and the Mighty Duck Blues Band has written the forward for this guide and writes this: “Finally someone has stepped up and dedicated hours, days, months and years to a project that documents what Canada has contributed to the world’s wealth of Blues recordings. Canadian Blues, Reference & Collectors Guide bears witness to a growing art form. Flip through the pages, find music you’ve missed or overlooked and remind yourself of pieces you may have forgotten. Mostly remember one thing, “You Can’t Lose If You Love The Blues”.

"I find the amount of research you’ve done and information you have presented to be staggering. It is really well done!"
Sarah French, Sarah French Publicity
"Well done, and it appears to be about up to date as you can get."
Holger Peterson, Host of CBC's Saturday Night Blues, owner Stony Plain Records
"The resulting book is a worthwhile and valuable addition to anyone’s research library, documenting an important but underappreciated genre of Canadian music history. With a foreword by highly-regarded and longtime working Canadian blues musician, legend Gary Kendall (Downchild Blues Band, Gary Kendall Band), along with assistance from Canadian music stalwarts like journalist Alan Cross, Canadian blues and roots record label head Holger Peterson (Stony Plain Records), along with Terry Parsons, it’s hard to find anything missed, as far as any blues recordings ever released in Canada are concerned." Gerry Young, The Spill Magazine
