A collection of outtakes from various Bloomfield sessions, this is necessarily an uneven package, and the title isn't quite accurate. In fact, it's something of a stretch to label Bloomfield's slide guitar version of a song by Carole Bayer Sager ("When I Need You") either blues, gospel, or ragtime. (It's an impressive performance, however).
The rest of the album does live up to its title; the ragtime stuff is the most revelatory, particularly the solo "Blake's Rag," which shows what a terrific acoustic player Bloomfield could be (as does the delicate and aptly titled "Hawaiian Guitar Waltz."). Highlight: a wonderfully sleazy version of Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo."
