Bloomfield hit me like a hammer when I bought "Super Session" on vinyl when it first came out. I have loved him ever since. This is a marvellous set and my heartfelt thanks to the publishers for getting it out there. I have always felt that Bloomfield and Peter Green were the very best of the white blues players and right up there with the best players of the genre in any circumstance. What makes them so special is their note execution and timing. It is simply superb and shows their sheer class. It is a joy to listen to either and with this Bloomfield set there is plenty of great listening. Buy it if you want to hear a great guitar player execute his art.

This nicely packaged 3 CD / 1 DVD set from Sony Legacy is an at times simply majestic celebration of the guitar artistry of the late Michael Bloomfield. He played with Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 when Dylan decided to 'go electric', but his work with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Electric Flag or as part of the Al Kooper 'Supersession' album and beyond ensured that his playing skills would be the stuff of legend. His withering drug addiction problems would ensure that his life - he died when he was just thirty-seven years old - would be short and not always sweet - but this set is a suitable epitaph for an underrated guitar player.

Lovely film and music - the previously unreleased "Santana Clause" a definite highlight of Michael's career. Despite 2 decades of box sets and revisionary CD releases with extra tracks, this track alone shows there is still a lot of music out there that was recorded years ago but never released...

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

Mike Bloomfield is an absolute guitar legend, from his early days with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (just hear the tracks here from the amazing East-West album), through the time with the Electric Flag, that lasted far too shorter time, the still incredible Super Session, recorded in one day before he went home with Al Kooper, the Fillmore East sessions which were for a time the lost sessions. We get some stunning coustic blues along the way, Bloomfield spend huge periods of time seeing and learning exactly how the blues greats played, he was passionate, his guitar became part of him as hunched over it he just poured evry ounce of his being inti his music with incredible results. Sadly though he was troubled inside and life was a struggle, but this absolutely outstanding box set gives an incredible insight to why he remains so reveared amongst guitarists today. Over three CD's and a documentary style DVD we are left in no doubt of his abilities and his stunning guitar playing, highly rated by Bob Dylan who brought him in on recording sessions, just put on disc three and the live take on Dylan.s 'The Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar', the band really laying down a groove that Bloomfield weaves his magic over. Listen to his spoken intros, racks from the 1977 McCAbe's session with just voice and solo guitar, or playing on one of Muddy Waters songs joined by the man himself . Theamazing solo version of 'Darktown Strutters Ball', a challenge for vany would be guitarist.
One could write so much about Bloomfield, but start listening to this amazing box set, he's sad;ly long gone, found dead in his own car on a drug overdose, but what he left is a legacy of one of the finest and most exciting guitarists you will ever hear,Mike Bloomfield.
