5.0 out of 5 stars For me, this was the first..... March 21, 2006
By Harv K.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
High school was ending. College beckoned. And music was about to explode: Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver, Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan. For me, the first taste of it came from the Blues Project. This album, their first, was recorded live, on a four-track, and freshness, spontaneity, and sheer fun leap out from the speakers with amazing clarity all things considered. The later studio work from this group does not have the spark found in this one. If you enjoyed this compilation years ago, buy it again and you won't be disappointed - you will also enjoy the liner notes. If you have never heard it, and want to experience how a golden era of music began, get it. A treat awaits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still delivers with the best August 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you talk about the 60s and 70s, I believe the two most underrated groups are Spirit and the Blues Project, both of which were very jazzy for the taste of the epoch and so much more sophisticated than the commercial music.

I bought this CD to see if I would still like it. You hear so much music from the 60s to the 90s all over the radio. Some sounds rancid and some sublime.

I loved this album when it first came out. (My friend Chris Winfield who is now an artist, turned me on to them as he did to much jazz, classical and blues.) They were among my favorite groups then and remain so.

I have to say that I loved Flute thing and a few instrumentals which are not included here but no one can perform every track in concert.

Listening now, I especially enjoy Alberta and Violets of Dawn, very poetic with that certain offness which Verlaine recommends for poetry. (I can't even recommend Verlaine so much since so many other French poets exceed him by far but he did write some amazing poems on how poetry should work.)

So, if you want pure poetry in the form of music, get this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blues Project First Album October 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a kid in jr high/high school, I bought this record when it first came out. I love having the expanded version, with improved sound, available after some 4+ decades. Born in an era of wider spread exposure of traditional blues to a young white audience, the Blues Project could play the blues definitively ("Alberta"), but also brought folk and rock influences (and later, on "Flute Thing," jazz) to the table. I was afraid it would be just a nostalgia trip to hear this after so many years, but it remains enjoyable and fresh.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic album June 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was part of the soundtrack of my teen years and was one of the most influential records of the '60s by a group that has been all but forgotten. The Blues Project was THE seminal New York City psychedelic band, members of which became influential throughout the music industry. If you love '60s music and have never heard this you owe it to yourself to buy this album. If you already know this band then I'm preaching to the choir.
