Description by OLDIES.com:
This book traces the rise and fall of one of the most talented, charismatic, and influential guitarists of the 1960s. Born into a wealthy family, misunderstood by his father, and plagued by manic depression, Michael Bloomfield achieved a musical brilliance that led to gold records and a posthumous election to The Blues Foundation Hall of Fame.
This book also reveals Bloomfield's personal and professional decline in the late 1970s, which ended in his tragic and mysterious drug-related death. Along with its CD of unreleased tracks, rare photos and critical discography, you'll come to know the "huge giant of a person" who played the blues "as if he came down from a higher plane."
