I bought these albums in the early 80's, when they were just out. Beteen a Rock and the Ground is Bloomfield at his most relaxed and loose setting, and it's LIVE also. It doesn't get any better than this. ENJOY!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The short lived master. 24 Mar 2014
By L. Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bloomfield played like no body else... chewy, heartfelt blues guitar playing that really wasn't ever that fast or showy but twisted and stretched and syncopated the blues to keep the boredom far away. it's too bad there is so relatively little of this stuff to hear.This is a good but not great example. It's no "Mary Ann" from "The Live Adventures....", but it's got Bloomfeilds magic nonetheless. The overall pickens are sadly less than one might wish for, but when the great ones go far too early (like Michael and Danny Gatton), ya savor what yas are left with.,and say THANKS

This was a Christmas gift for a good friend, who is also a musician. I have not heard the album, but my friend loved it.
