Mike Bloomfield was one of America’s greatest musicians in the 1960s and 1970s—our country’s answer to Eric Clapton. As a teen in Chicago, Mike was enamored with the power and originality of such bluesmen as John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Lightnin’ Hopkins. Soon he became an in-demand session musician backing the likes of Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary. Then he joined the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Much of the group’s success was due to Bloomfield’s superb guitar work. Other groups with which he was associated include the Electric Flag. This album was recorded live at McCabe’s Guitar Workshop on January 1, 1977. The album stands as a tribute to one our greatest musicians. Joining Mike on this CD are Mark Naftalin on keyboards, Beull Neidlinger on bass, and Buddy Helm on drums. ©2017. Running time: 42:55.
