4.0 out of 5 stars Great live Bloomfield! May 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Without providing a full review of this CD (available elsewhere) I did want to point out that the most obvious flaw in the CD, the drummer's inability to play in time with the band, reveals one of the great strengths of Mike Bloomfield. At turns, the drummer tries to play a straight blues in 3/4 or sounds like he is accompanying a striptease act rather than a blues-rock band. But listen to Bloomfield's blistering solo on "Don't Throw Your Love on me so Strong" and hear how he plays completely undeterred even by a drummer hopelessly out of sync with the rest of the band. Bloomfield's solo on this Albert King classic is so full of exquisite chops and passion it's worth the price of the ticket alone. His tone is unbelievable and it's a rare individual who can make even a Les Paul sound that good. It's as close as anyone I have heard come to making a guitar talk. Then again, the extended solos of Winter and Bloomfield on "It's My Own Fault" also justify the purchase. It's like listening to two masters at the peak of their game totally in control and throwing everything they've got at the music on one very good night. Thanks for finding these tapes Mr. Kooper.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Wait April 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Who would've thought that in April of 2003, it would be sort of my take of a "Bloomfield" Month, with the duo releases of this album & the re-release of the Super Session album? The project as a whole had been delayed for some time, as I continually made my trip to the stores...only to find out on Al Kooper's web site that Sony/Columbia had to delay the project again.... & again.
True to Mr. Kooper's word, this album is "all about Bloomfield". Well sort of, as a nod must be given to the surprise guest appearance by Johnny Winter(what happened to the mentioned Buzzy Feiten cuts?). And he does not disappoint, but the drummer sure does. All over this recording, as he & the rest of the band are clearly out of sync.
However, there is enough here to overlook any of the faults. At time when he was still at the peak of his guitar powers, & his name was ALWAYS mentioned with the other great guitarists of the day. His singing NEVER was on par with his guitar playing(not much changes in my assessment w/ this album), but if one wants to just hear the man play with glee, pick this one up. It's what keeps many of us coming back for more to this inconsistent, but giant talent. By then, he wasn't the hot shot guitarist with the Butterfield Blues Band. Rather, a seasoned pro that had perfected his "Bloomfield" style.
The playing by Bloomfield is on par with the My Labors/Fillmore West releases, but those recordings were enhanced with the addition of Nick Gravenites, the backing band for those gigs, & the guest appearance by Taj Mahal.
Hopefully this project will remind the musical community again on what an awesome talent he was. Many of us owe it him, & countless others who were there to "educate" the rock & roll community on the art form known as the blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars THEY ONCE WUZ LOST BUT NOW THEY FOUND!!!!!!!! April 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My copies of Fillmore East Lost tapes arrived today via Amazon. All I can say is that sometimes when you have anticipated something for a long time you can become afraid that it can't possibly live up to your built up expectations. No fear this time. The lost album is indescribable. What a treasure to hear Kooper and Bloomfield together again! After wearing out copies of Super Session and Super Session live on Vinyl, 8 track, cassette, and CD, to actually hear this new material was like the closest thing to time travel that I expect to ever get. On Al Kooper's web site he mentions how this album would be a real find for Bloomfield fans, well he wasn't just kidding. From the get go Mike sounds focused, sober and on a mission. The guitar duet with Johnny Winter is worth the whole album. Mike's playing of "Don't throw your love on me so strong" is turned up several notches from the original live Super Session and his vocals are heartfelt. After 35 years, the unearthing of this material is a most welcome widening of our perspective on some legendary music making. So set out some incense, break out your black light posters and back issues of Zap comix and don't miss it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Live Adventures December 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
All the reviews I saw in Amazon rave about this set but I didn't like it so much. Now mind you, I believe everyone should own everything Bloomfield ever recorded and it is real nice to have something "new" to hear but the sound and the music didn't turn me on like the original Live Adventures from the west coast show. It is awful nice to hear the Jonnie Winters bit on this but on the whole the album isn't as hot as all that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Concert Tape! May 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Al Kooper and Mike Bloomfield are two individuals that took very different paths in life. Kooper played the organ, piano and vocals and is still producing excellent music today. Bloomfield was an extremely gifted guitarist that dedicated excessive time to drugs and alcohol and who died at the young age of 37 as a result. Kooper, however, will not let the world forget about his friend and the musical contribution that he made during his short life. In addition to this release, Kooper is currently working at a Bloomfield anthology.
This disc features tunes originally recorded at the Fillmore East in December of 1968. The tapes laid unplayed in Columbia's vaults and were thought to be missing until Kooper rediscovered them in 1999 while sorting through material for the box set "Rare & Well Done". Now, after baking the tapes in an oven to prevent oxidation, digitally debuzzing the ground hums, clicks and audio aberrations and some careful editing, Bloomfield releases this lost recording 33 years after they were originally recorded.
The recording opens with an introduction and then a guitar drenched version of "One Way Out" with quivering Bloomfield vocals. Bloomfield then introduces an unsigned Johnny Winter who plays an extended version of B.B. King's "It's My Own Fault". After hearing Winter's blistering guitar solo on this tune, it's no wonder that Columbia executives were falling all over themselves to sign him the next morning.
Winter's solo is followed by Bloomfield's rendition of Paul Simon's "Feelin' Groovy", and Bloomfield's own slow Chicago blues number "Please Tell Me Partner" and a superbly covered version of Albert King's "Don't Throw Your Love On Me So Strong" which is the only track which truly highlights Kooper's talent on the organ and piano.
The lone soft spot on the disc is probably "Together Till The End Of Time" but considering the high quality of the remainder of the disc, it's a flaw that can easily be overlooked.
