What a phenomenal player! Love the Super sessions cd. One of my major influences
At Super Sessions and Butterfield Blues Band.
Long Live Mike!
THE best! indeed
Every golden moment of this:
I wore out the Super Sessions like in 3 different platforms. Never gets old, never.
Which guitar did he sound best on?
"all night long"
Saw him with Bloomfools at Paul's Mall in Boston. Amazing!
He's top 10 for me for sure. Maybe top 5. Incredible player. I only wish he would have left us more recording and video.
I like some of the oddball cuts that came a little later in his career. His phrasing improved and so did his voice.
I could be wrong but isn't the first solo of East-West actually Elvin Bishop
Yeah I think it is. And the second solo (harp) is Butterfield. Then the third solo, which starts at 2:49, is Bloomfield. Then I'm not sure if it's all Bloomfield for the rest of the song, or whether Bishop gets another shot at it.
Either way, it's magic.
This one always gets me. The playing and the tone. What a master.
Classic. I learned to jam from this album
Both guys are definitely playing at the end, over each other, going crazy!
Sounds like key of D (?) ,and at one point ( quickly) you can hear Bloomfield hit a low tonic on the low E string, makes me wonder if maybe he had just that string tuned down to D, but really isn't striking it that much?
Playing the P-90 Goldtop, right? Loud and clean!
Yes of course! They're playing together for the last few minutes. I'd forgotten that - haven't listened to it all the way through in a while.
Was Bloomfield on the LP by this time? I can't remember when he exchanged the Tele for the LP. It was fairly early on, so probably is playing the Gibson on this album. Sounds throaty enough through (I assume) a Twin.
I think by the Super Sessions he was playing a Strat - that was his weapon for much of the 70s.

I think '68, then Electric Flag after....
