Blues or Blues-based Rock

Still gets at least a monthly play :smiling_imp:

Being a traditionalist , I maintain the “proper” album artwork, maybe proper is the wrong description :joy:

There’s a live album with Winwood & Clapton too , covers half the material,

Why did they stop ?

Can’t believe there’s no mention of Marcus King or the Marcus King Band yet in this thread! I’ve been hooked on him for years and recommend him to everyone.

There is a Bloomfield solo on the Electric Flag’s “Another Country” right after the sound collage. It starts out acoustic, kind of bossa nova feel and with every 16 bars it tightens up, the tone grows sharper, the bent notes bite. When the horns come in it is full-on glorious Bloomers, swaggering, preaching, playing counterpoint to the horns, soaring like a gospel soloist in front of the choir.

If there were a way to plug my mind into a receiver, I believe I could play back that solo note-for-note, I’ve listened to it so many times. I’d give my right arm to be able to play it note-for-note, too (but then obviously I couldn’t, etc, etc.)

You can hear various modern players referencing Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB, Freddie King, Albert Collins in their playing, but I haven’t heard anyone referencing Bloomfield except maybe Robben Ford. Maybe that’s understandable. Bloomfield’s playing is beyond technique, beyond tone, out there where the guitar becomes a voice.

Fast forward to 4:04 and turn it up loud!

Hey @soks, totally agree! I’m happy to say that he’s a super cool, humble guy, and dyed-in-the-wool music lover. I’ve stage managed a few of his shows. Always a pleasure to talk music with.
