From Access All Areas, 2:00 pm on 19 April 2014

Guitarist Michael Bloomfield was born in Chicago, a rich white Jewish kid who ended up jamming with some of the biggest blues players, as well as the likes of Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin.

A new anthology called From His Head to His Heart to His Hands features Bloomfield's contributions to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Electric Flag and the Super Session album.

Trevor Reekie talks to one time Rolling Stone and Creem Magazine contributor John Morthland about why Michael Bloomfield is regarded as America's greatest 'forgotten' guitar hero.
