Michael Bloomfield Book Description :

This is the definitive biography of the legendary guitarist whom Muddy Waters and B. B. King held in high esteem and who created the prototype for Clapton, Hendrix, Page, and those who followed. Bloomfield was a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, which inspired a generation of white blues players; he played with Bob Dylan in the mid-1960s, when his guitar was a central component of Dylan's new rock sound on "Like a Rolling Stone." He then founded the Electric Flag, recorded Super Session with Al Kooper, backed Janis Joplin, and released at least twenty other albums despite debilitating substance abuse. This book, based on extensive interviews with Bloomfield himself and with those who knew him best, and including an extensive discography and Bloomfield's memorable 1968 Rolling Stone interview, is an intimate portrait of one of the pioneers of rock guitar.

"Mike Bloomfield is number one. Not only did he play over the top well and I mean amazingly well but he also played what I call 'real' guitar. If you've ever heard Mike Bloomfield, then you know what I'm talking about. It just came from his heart. I never got a chance to see him because he died at an early age, but he was a big influence on me as to the way I learned to bend strings and get everything I could out of a note. One of the best players ever." Mick Mars (Motley Crue)

Guitar King Book Description :

Named one of the world’s great blues-rock guitarists by Rolling Stone, Mike Bloomfield (1943–1981) remains beloved by fans nearly forty years after his untimely death. Taking readers backstage, onstage, and into the recording studio with this legendary virtuoso, David Dann tells the riveting stories behind Bloomfield’s work in the seminal Paul Butterfield Blues Band and the mesmerizing Electric Flag, as well as the Super Session album with Al Kooper and Stephen Stills, Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited, and soundtrack work with Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson. In vivid chapters drawn from meticulous research, including more than seventy interviews with the musician’s friends, relatives, and band members, music historian David Dann brings to life Bloomfield’s worlds, from his comfortable upbringing in a Jewish family on Chicago’s North Shore to the gritty taverns and raucous nightclubs where this self-taught guitarist helped transform the sound of contemporary blues and rock music. With scenes that are as electrifying as Bloomfield’s music, this is the story of a life lived at full volume.

Gold Book Description :

The quest for gold sounds like something from the past, but gold remains a highly prized and impactful resource within the global economy. From the insatiable demand for gold in the electronics that permeate our day to day, to the environmental desolation driven by gold mining in the Amazon, the gold trade continues to touch the lives and livelihoods of people across the world. In this book, Bloomfield and Maconachie tell the intriguing story of the yellow metal, tracing the seismic shifts in the industry over the last few decades. They explain how huge purchases of gold reserves by BRICS countries like China and Russia mark the shifting balance of power away from the West. And how rising affluence in India has led to a surging demand for gold jewellery, undermining attempts to make supply chains more responsible. Throughout the book, the authors suggest ways we could, collectively, make practices work better for the countless workers and communities who too often suffer at the producer-end of the supply chain. Linking local to global, producer to consumer, and gold’s extraction from the Earth to the financial centres that fuel it, this book offers a probing analysis that reveals who wins and who loses, and what this means for the future of gold.
