Michael Bloomfield Box Set

(3 CD/ 1 DVD – Box Set)

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. Sony Legacy Recordings, along with Bob Sarles of Ravin’ Films, have released “From His Head to His Heart to his Hands” a 3-CD and DVD box set: including ‘Sweet Blues: A Film about Michael Bloomfield’ with extensive liner notes by Michael Simmons and lots of great pictures.

This three CD and one DVD biography was put together by Mike’s friend, producer Al Kooper.  This weekend Al joins Elwood to talk about that, starting from his own life in the blues, with the Blues Project, Blood Sweat and Tears, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Al remembers Bloomfield’s recordings with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Bob Dylan, and Electric Flag.  And finally the music they made together, including Super Session, and other projects.
