Nick Gravenites With Mike Bloomfield - My Labors + 7 Bonus Tracks - 1969 Live At Fillmore West - Great Blues (Wave & Mp3 @320)

While this album is listed as a Nick Gravenites album, Michael Bloomfield plays such an integral part, one is tempted to call it "Our Labors." Nick Gravenites is an underrated songwriter/singer and deserves accolades for his work on this and many other albums but the star that really shines,no,blazes, is Michael Bloomfield. His playing on the live cuts is some of the best blues guitar I've ever heard. That's no hyperbole,either. Mike Bloomfield had brains in his fingers and this CD proves it. This is Blues improvisation at its finest. By the way, "My Labors" was recorded in 1969. While some of the studio cuts sound a little dated, the live stuff sounds like it could have been recorded yesterday. Timeless. ( By John B. Ivey "Slothhand")

I don't know why the links on your site are always dead, but you have some great music to offer if you could get the links working. I have tried to get this set and the Rockets live set and both are no good. Please fix them.
