Celebrating the personal and musical legacy of Tim Buckley, Blue Melody tells the untold story of an exceptionally gifted and charismatic singer-songwriter rebel of the 1960s. Written by Buckley's lead guitarist and close friend, this combination of fond memoir and incisive biography is a remembrance of concerts, tours, recording sessions, friends, family and fellow musicians - and the tumultuous times in which they lived. It is also an informed appraisal of Buckley's dramatic creative odyssey, offering in-depth insight into his complex and sometimes self-destructive personality. The vivid narrative depicts Buckley's panoramic evolution across folk, folk-rock, jazz, avant-garde, and funk-rock, highlighting his refusal to be defined by critical or commercial success. Revealing Buckley's poetic intelligence and captivating humor, Blue Melody recounts dozens of behind-the-scenes stories, plus new information on the circumstances surrounding his alcohol and heroin overdose in 1975 at age 28.

Lee Underwood's biography of the great Tim Buckley is outstanding and it could not have been written by anyone more qualified. Underwood played alongside Tim throughout most of his short musical career and played on 7 of the 9 albums Buckley released during his short life.Lee contributed alot to the Buckley sound and he is often overlooked because of Tim's soaring vocal abilities,but just listen closely to Blue Afternoon,Lorca and Starsailor and you can hear Underwood's majestic avant garde jazz guitar adding colour to the sounds of Tim's 12 string playing. This book is easily the best book on Tim and Lee Underwood deserves more recognition and credit for his contributions to Tim's music.I highly praise Underwood for writting this book and keeping Tim's music relevant after all these years. I love this book and I believe you will too,get it now!!!
