Recorded live in The Fillmore Auditorium, San Francisco September 26, 27, 28th 1968 - this is a superb live set featuring Elvin Bishop and Carlos Santana. Those Old Records - Rugeley, Staffordshire stocks many rare and collectable records.
In the wake of the success of their seminal 1968 Super Session album, blues-steeped guitar hero Mike Bloomfield (formerly of the Butterfield Blues Band and the Electric Flag) and multi-talented keyboardist/singer Al Kooper (ex-Blues Project and Blood, Sweat and Tears) teamed up again for a historic series of joint performances at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore West, which are documented on The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper.
The resulting live album, culled from three nights’ worth of shows and released in 1969, is a powerful testament to the formidable musical chemistry of these two rock legends, whose collaboration began when they played on Bob Dylan’s classic Highway 61 Revisited. The Fillmore performances bring out the best in both musicians, who stretch out on an assortment of tunes, including the Kooper/Bloomfield original “Her Holy Modal Highness,” Paul Simon’s “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” (with Simon adding vocal harmonies), the Elvis Presley standard “That’s All Right,” The Band’s “The Weight,” Booker T. and the MGs’ “Green Onions” and Albert King’s “Don’t Throw Your Love on Me So Strong,” which features a rare Bloomfield vocal. The album also features guest appearances by Elvin Bishop and Carlos Santana.
