Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper & Stephen Stills – Super Session [Stereo] (Speakers Corner Edition)
Remastered all-analog (AAA) from the original master tapes by Maarten De Boer at Emil Berliner Studios.
The musicians are aiming high with their desire for a Super Session, for it's not something that can be planned. Only when the time, place and audience play along, when one's lucky star is shining brightly, and the musicians have a good day, then one of music's great moments might be captured on tape. Not forgetting the recording technicians who also have to be in the mood. In 1968 this all happened to be the case with the majority of the nine numbers on this Columbia LP. All in all, one must consider the numbers with Steve Stills as most successful in the sense of a session because here each musician inspires the others. In the super session with Kooper and Bloomfield, the guitarist stands in the limelight while the other musicians back him up.
