"Bud Melvin is one of earlier non-commercial GAMEBOY musicians from Chicago. He released first solo album including 10 tracks. Three of them are now available as online previews in MP3 format. Those songs aren't pure GAMEBOY songs, but be in organic harmony with his vocals/banjo/guitar etc., and resulted in a very unique aspiring works which show his sense of pop out of the ordinary. A folkish bossa nova named "Moonglow" is especially worth to check out. Curiously it might give you 60s pop feeling." - www.vorc.org
