The notes are the easy part.....Bloomfield's sense of time and phrasing...magical.
Best ever. Best Mike. Best Mike plus Al. Best produced Bloomfield track. Best Al Kooper backing. I used to sit and listen to this track over and over.
I'm always amazed at how much the truly great players can convey, with so few notes. Every note is essential, none are wasted.
Listening to the track, the backing of the band does quite a bit of lifting as well. Dynamic and everybody seems to be responsive to what everyone else is playing. It just elevates his playing like putting the right frame on a portrait.
The horns ( I believe) were added after Super Sessions were recorded.
My older sister had this on vinyl in HS, so I've been listening to this, Butterfield, Electric Flag since I was 11!
She had the albums on reel-to-reel as she had an integrated amp/ Stereo tape player, but no turntable.
So her then boyfriend recorded HIS albums onto tape for her.
( I liked hanging out with them- a pest)
A true master. Listen, and have faith in osmosis.
This and the James Gangs version were a big part of my early guitar inspiration
Yeah, everyone on that record can play a little bit.
And listen to how twangy a vintage sunburst Paul was through a black face twin.
I remember reading that the 59 Burst he played on that album was lost?
He left it in Canada at a club as he had to leave quickly. Mike was a real messed up guy especially towards the end of his life. Very sad story.
Check out YouTube Monterey outtakes. He is just incredible.
Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield, amazing
The reason he’s only on one side of Super Session is he just up and left after a day or two. Kooper called in Steve Stills to help finish the album.
I love that all of my 60s hero’s used coily cords. Didn’t they know that it would hurt there sound?....?
I know it’s supposed to be the Les Paul era, but damn, sounds like his old Tele to me on that track.
He was one of my heroes. He was gone way too soon. My favorite Bloomfield is the Electric Flag album.
Great minds think alike . I actually prefer the James Gang version on 'Yer Album .
James Gang, played the full form of the tune.
MB n AK stuck to the opening vamp.
Buddy Miles w Hendrix did a great version of this tune as well.
