The Electric Flag - Live From California 1967-1968 (2CD)

•    Two fantastic live shows from The Electric Flag at the peak of their career

•    The first was performed at the famed Whisky A Go-Go, West Hollywood, CA in September 1967, just one week after their gig at Fillmore West opening for Cream

•    The second was recorded at the equally legendary Carousel Ballroom, San Francisco, CA in May 1968 and features the original band lineup: Mike Bloomfield, Nick Gravenites, Buddy Miles, Barry Goldberg, Harvey Brooks, Herbie Rich, Doubleday and Peter Strazza

The Electric Flag was one of the premiere rock bands of the 1960's. Organized by Mike Bloomfield, who had just left the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the band featured such notable talent as Buddy Miles, Elvin Bishop, Nick Gravenites and Barry Goldberg. The Flag was the first band to feature a full horn section in support of its searing blues and jazz based rock originals.

The Electric Flag astounded both critics and the public, both of which proclaimed the band as the world's greatest. And they were, indeed! No one ever came close to their combination of brilliant musicianship and hard blues based commercial music. Sadly, egos prevailed and the group broke up after only two years of performing and recording. Their albums are still selling today and are regarded as essential albums for any rock library.
