Radio Show Playlist: April 19-20, 2014

FROM HIS HEAD TO HIS HEART TO HIS HANDS is a tribute to the great Michael Bloomfield.  This three CD and one DVD biography was put together by Mike’s friend, producer Al Kooper.  He 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. Also a rocking tune from a terrific new CD by Michigan harmonica man Hank Mowery.
