Product Description:

In a demonstration of late-1960s musical guerilla warfare, "Killing Floor," the first track of the debut album from the blues guitarist Mike Bloomfield's ambitious yet short-lived Electric Flag, juxtaposes a sample of a speech by then-President Lyndon B. Johnson with a stinging Bloomfield guitar salvo. Though this opener's pent-up energy isn't quite matched on the rest of the set--which combines the psychedelic rock of "Groovin Is Easy" and "Sittin' Around in Circles" with straight blues tracks such as the jumping-and-jiving "Wine" and the slow-burning "Texas"--it highlights Bloomfield's impressive, though unrealized vision of a band that would filter a wide variety of American music through a contemporary sensibility.

Rating 5.0 Unrecognized Classic Music Lover: from Greenville, NY US -- May, 21, 2008

I was impressed with the music on this LP in 1968 and I have listened to the LP all these years. Forty years later I still spin a CD version of this title.
Mike Bloomfield headed this amazing ensemble; which featured 'Buddy' Miles', Harvey Brooks and Nich Gravenites.
Bloomfield's guitar playing stands up to any rock/blues players living or dead. And the arrangements for all of these songs are great. Gravenites is a distinctive vocalist as well.
The CD version has four cuts from the first Electric Flag LP added as the last tracks.
