Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper: The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper
Guitarist Michael Bloomfield and organ player Al Kooper was part of Bob Dylan's backing band in 1965, playing together with Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson behind Dylan at a few concerts. They were also present on Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited sessions. Kooper later was involved with Paul Butterfield's Blues Band and Blood, Sweat & Tears, and guested on records by Dylan, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, which he kind of discovered and produced. Bloomfield, that died of drug abuse in 1981, is known for his work with Paul Butterfield and the group Electric Flag.
The Live Adventures of..., a follow-up to the successful 1968 jam album Super Session with Bloomfield, Kooper and Stephen Stills, was recorded over three nights in 1968 at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. It's a typical '60s live album, rather unfocused but notable for Bloomfield's singing debut. Includes a cover of "The Weight".
