Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: From His Head To His Heart To His Hands (Audio CD)
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.
