The Record Plant ’73 (CD) by Michael Bloomfield with Mark Naftalin

In a Rolling Stone interview Dylan remembered Bloomfield as "the guy that I always miss..... he had so much soul. And he knew all the styles".  Al Kooper, that "he had 90% talent, 10% ambition"and in 1966 Clapton called him "music on two legs"

Combining stinging treble-tone, articulate and fluid phrasing and headlong full tilt soloing, he was without comparison or peer. This session with long term collaborator Mark Naftalin at the Record Plant, Sausalito 1973 broadcast by KSAN-FM features a more relaxed mostly acoustic show, proving that his artistry had not yet been diminished by the debilitating powers of insomnia and heroin.  And again from Dylan "I think he'd still be around if he'd stayed with me"
