Mike Bloomfield & Friends, live at the Bottom Line, New York on January 25th 1975By the mid-seventies, Mike Bloomfield's friendship with Electric Flag members remained as strong as ever, as their two-night engagement at New York's Bottom Line in January 1975 testifies. Minus Goldberg and Miles and putting a failed reunion Flag album behind him, Bloomfield is joined by friends past and present.

With ex-Butterfield cohort Mark Naftalin, George Raines (Boz Scaggs) and new Electric Flag recruit Roger 'Jellyroll' Troy, the band would find little or no pressure at the Bottom Line. Echoes of Electric Flag and Gravenites' tenure in Big Brother are recalled alongside the more traditional drawl of Little Walter and Stick McGhee.

Six years later, Mike Bloomfield would be found dead in his car from a drug overdose. It's a prized concert from an icon that embraced the blues and who left a legacy behind him.

Klondike proudly presents, the entire original WLIR-FM broadcast of Mike Bloomfield and Friends live from the Bottom Line, NY on January 25th 1975.

Professionally re-mastered original FM broadcast with expansive liners, interviews and rare archival photos.
