Bloomfield Kooper Stills - Super Session
(1968, Columbia)

Image
Image

notes from several years ago:


May 1968 when Bloomfield was in the process of leaving the Electric Flag, and Stills was in the process of leaving Buffalo Springfield and a few weeks away from joining up with David Crosby and Graham Nash. with Harvey Brooks from Electric Flag on bass. I can hear the twangy Stills' Buffalo Springfield guitar chords on the Dylan tune; he also stretches out with some Hendrix-like amped up licks on the "You Don't Love Me" jam. love this record.

Raging Slab - s/t
(1989, RCA) STERLING in the deadwax, mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound, NYC

Image
Image

Produced by Daniel Rey (who also produced Iggy Pop, The Ramones). A 1989 Guitar World review of Raging Slab described the group's sound as "Lynyrd Skynyrd meets Metallica". I can hear the influences. This record cooks, especially like a track called "Bent For Silver".
