"Play The Blues As You Please, Man!"

Line up your list of "Guitar Gods" and I'll line up mine=Mike Bloomfield is gonna be sittin' on the top few rungs of my ladder! {Bloomfield picked & played with the best: Bob Dylan, Stephen Stills, Al Kooper and Paul Butterfield!} "Play "Em As You Please" is a crazy collection of tunes; absolutely aimed at amatuer axe-slingers! The narratives are informative as well as interesting. Bloomfield loved to Jam with established Bluesmen; in the Studio as well as on Stage! (I really felt like it was a "Death In My Family" when I read about his tragic demise) On this collection, Blues Electric & Acoustic really do come alive in the hands of a man who just loved to "Play It As He Pleased!" Pleased to hear you again, Mike! Grimmbo.
