An extremely enjoyable if at times slightly self-indulgent live album.

Bloomfield and Kooper compliment each other superbly as many years later did Clapton and Winwood.

Mike Bloomfield is simply the gutsiest and soulful of all the non African American guitarists.He enhances the great tradition of BB and Freddie King,Buddy Guy et al,adding a Jewish soul to the Blues.

Al Kopper has been the catalyst for many Rock movements incuding Jazz Rock with Blood Sweat and Tears,and is of course most famous for his organ part on Bob Dylan's Like A Rolling Stone amongst many other Dylan tracks of the period.

There is length to this album,giving time for the solos to gestate that only Jazz albums usually have.

If you enjoy great playing ,marvelous interplay backed up by a superb rhythm section,this will not disappoint !

It is nice to hear a pair of professionals who just start playing and instinctively know where to go next, I wish there were more like them on the go nowadays. thanks

Got this on vinyl a million years ago but alas nothing to play it on, so reliving my younger days with this and other classics on CD. Great atmosphere with this live recording, and yes they really did speak like that back then.

This is an excellent record of 3 nights of jamming at the Fillmore, with Carlos Santana and Elvin Bishop replacing Mike Bloomfield, who was taken ill after the first night.

I guess rehearsals for the first night were few, and for the subsequent ones, non-existent! However, the musicians know each other well, and are obviously familiar with the songs, so it's a case of "hold tight, and we'll meet at the end"!

Quite a range of material in the Bloomfield section (which is most of the album), which perhaps you wouldn't expect from a man with such a strong blues background (although he had, of course, worked with Dylan as well). Some nice guitar solos, and some very sensitive rhythm playing. Al Kooper has a great Hammond organ sound, although in one or two places he experiments with what sounds like a Moog Synthesizer, which I'm not sure works too well! The rhythm section are well up to the job, and hold things together nicely.

Interesting to hear Santana on the track "Sonny Boy Williamson" (which was the b-side of a Paul Jones single!). He plays some nice blues, but it's unmistakeably Santana!

Elvin Bishop doesn't do it for me, so it's just as well he's only on 1 track (as is Santana). His lead playing for me is nothing special, and there are some rather horrible bum notes!He replaced Bloomfield in the Butterfield band, but is not in the same class.

Overall, however, I think it is a really enjoyable album, and a great document of it's time.

The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper is one of the most enjoyable albums of the 20th Century! I first heard it in 1970 and just had to hear this album again. It is even better than their super session recordings in the studio.
