Mike Bloomfield (July 28, 1943 – February 15, 1981) was an American guitarist and composer, who became one of the first popular music superstars of the 1960s to earn his reputation almost entirely on his instrumental prowess, since he rarely sang before 1969. This album was recorded live in 1976 and 1977 by producer Norman Dayron at the Old Waldorf nightclub on Bloomfield‘s home turf in San Francisco with a hand-picked band. Bloomfield plays with assurance and authority throughout, exploring new ideas with each new chorus from his guitar, arguably at his best since his early Butterfield/Dylan days. He plays a lot of slide guitar here, too, and tracks like “Bad Luck Baby,” “The Sky Is Crying,” “Dancin’ Fool,” and “Buried Alive in the Blues” showcase his mighty talents with the bottleneck.
