Fillmore East: The Lost Concert Tapes is one of the live attempts at recreating the seminal jam chemistry of Super Session and like the others this previously unreleased set is a hit-and-miss affair with its fair share of off-key and off-target tunes. The rhythm section is erratic, the repertoire--ranging from Simon & Garfunkel's "59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)" to an Elvis-flavoured "That's All Right Mama"--is a bit odd and co-leader Al Kooper is competent but rarely inspired.

Guitarist Michael Bloomfield, however, is uniformly brilliant and his graceful blues virtuosity is by itself well worth the price of admission. Bloomfield and the group are joined on BB King's "It's My Own Fault" by a then-unknown Johnny Winter and things get really interesting. For nearly 11 minutes Winter and Bloomfield dive deep into the blues with Winter astounding the audience with his vocals and lightning licks on a song that had long been a staple of his live shows in Texas.

The remainder of the album lacks similar energy and excitement, but Bloomfield's guitar work keeps it listenable. Overall, The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield & Al Kooper, recorded several months earlier, provides a better look at the band's concert sound but it does so without Winter. --Michael Point, Amazon.com

Format: Audio CD
As you may have guessed from the title, this album compiles 60 minutes of live performances taped in December 1968, three months after Bloomfield & Kooper's three night stint at the Fillmore West in San Francisco, the better moments of which were compiled for the 'Live Adventures...' LP.
Overall, it's not quite the 5-star song'n'jam-fest that made 'Live Adventures' such a compelling historical artefact of a very special time in rock history.
Kooper's vocals (never his strongest point) don't always hit the mark, while the rhythm section (put together at short notice) sometimes seem at odds with each other.
Bloomfield, however, is on fire, his passionate and emotive soloing lifting the bar in a way few other guitarists at that time could match.
His brief partnership with the often underrated Al Kooper seemed to bring the best out of him, Kooper, in essence, creating a sympathetic backdrop which allowed Bloomfield to express himself fully.
It's not all about Bloomfield, however, as guest Johnny Winter pops up with a spellbinding version of 'It's My Own Fault' which blows the crowd away - and got young Johnny his first major-label deal.
The Bloomfield/Kooper axis play a similar choice of material to the September Fillmore West shows, '59th Street Bridge Song', 'That's All Right Mama' & 'Together Till The End Of Time' all played with a capture-the-moment feel which perfectly encapsulates the ad-hoc nature of late '60s U.S live shows.
They even manage to close with a 9-minute version of 'Season Of The Witch' (made famous by Al Kooper and Steve Stills).
Even with the slight imperfections that are apparent, the rhythm section do enough to enable Bloomfield & Kooper to jam to their hearts content.

Now as a fan of the Super Session but with reservation-some of it was a bit lame. Not all of it survived the passages of time when it comes to the vanguard of blues listening. This however does play all the right notes. The spoken introduction is annoying but after that "One Way Out" sets the tone for a blistering live set. Enter one Johnny Winter (following another annoying voice introduction) who burns through "It's My Own Fault" and the battle lines are drawn and rarely falter. Al Kooper's liner notes give you a history of the night, but it is the music, occasionally pedestrian "Till the End of Time" for example, it still as a whole results in capturing a stellar live performance on CD. Listening to it, you can step back in time, could be there, smell the sweat and finishing with "Season of the Witch"-check out the original Donovan take, but this is still a monster live.

Some great playing on this record - especially from Bloomfield and guest Johnny Winter - but a couple of tracks that, to be fair, should have remained unreleased. If you enjoyed Super Session and Live Adventures of, this will be for you.
