Biography

Michael Bloomfield was one of America's first great white blues guitarists, earning his reputation on the strength of his work in the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. His expressive, fluid solo lines and prodigious technique graced many other projects -- most notably Bob Dylan's earliest electric forays -- and he also pursued a solo career, with variable results.

This 3CD + 1DVD set has been a long time coming and Al Kooper has to be congratulated at least for his persistence with Columbia records in persuading them to get this set out. It is a shame really that it has come out hot on the heels of the tremendous and bar raising 7CD (!) Duane Allman box-set of last year (2013) which was just about perfect and consequently highlights the flaws with this set. Straight off the bat I have to say I am a huge admirer of Michael Bloomfield and reckon he was right at the top tier of guitarists in the 1960's and hugely influential on the psychedelic guitarists of the late '60's (just listen to "East-West" or his live performance of "Maggie Farm" backing Dylan at Newport and psych-guitar starts there!). The music on these CDs is spread over 3CD's but each CD only plays just over an hour which means almost an hour of potential playing time is lost - for a collector's set such as this and since Bloomfield was in his element on live guitar jams how come the free space wasn't filled up with some more examples of his live prowess such as "Moon Tune" or "Blues On A Westside" to name but two [or even better unreleased live material; there is plenty out there]?

More of Bloomfield's session work such as provided on the Duane Allman set would have also been welcome since he was arguably one of the most in demand session guitarists of the mid- to late- 60's after playing with Dylan. A whole disc of session work would've been welcome instead of the patchy final music disc (#3) which contains post-60's work which frankly doesn't do Bloomfield any favours sounding much diminished in performance and especially sound quality (he was playing club dates by this point with sadly his demons catching up with him).

The songs Al Kooper has chosen for the Mike Bloomfield Box set. But there is almost nothing from 1970 till 1980. The only exception are the songs from "I'm with you always. No title from the solo-lp's from 1976-80, no song from the Electric flag reunion, no song from the lp with Dr. John and John Hammond, no song from the Bloomfield/Harris-lp, no song from the Woody Herman Big Band-lp, no song from the KGB-lp, no song from his lp's with James Cotton or Sam Lay. There is more important music from Mike Bloomfield! I think the examples show that Mike's work is represented only half. To show the whole work is at least one more cd necessary. Al Kooper let this chance go by! And the chances for another Mike Bloomfield box set are very little!

Wonderful done booklet, CDs and DVD, missing some of his later work but as a retrospective from the time when Michael was the best Blues guitarist in the world, this is a wonderful, and long overdue, tribute to the man

Bloomfield's guitar work is lyrical and intense at the same time. His technique is perfection but always subserviant to the emotional impact. Like Mozart, he was a conduit for music. Even if blues oriented music isn't your thing you would appreciate the ability and the undeniable impact of the music both personally and for its historical influence.

This box set is great and long over due. ALthough i have most of the tracks, they are well worth owning again, but the icing on the cake for me is the DVD what a great documentary, hopefully one day they will release dvds of performance footage.

A non definitive but lovingly crafted box set featuring one of the best and underrated blues guitarists of the 20th Century.
The set was compiled by Al Kooper, but as some reviewers have noted is minus some key tracks from key bands KGB for instance. Each of the discs is not much more than 1 hour so there is approximately 45 minutes more music that could have been added easily. That said this is most likely down to getting the rights for the music. The box also does have an element of leave them wanting more, never a bad thing as there is nothing worse that a box which is bloated and has a 4th disc of music no one wants to hear.
For the casual Bloomfield collector there are a number of rare and previously unreleased tracks, while the set also serves as an appetiser for deeper diving the Bloomfield catalogue. The sound quality is top notch. My only real complaint is that the booklet is not anchored to the package and slides out very easily. That minor quibble aside great set. Recommended to anyone who like Blues music and would listen to Paul Jones show on radio 2 Monday nights.
