Electric Flag - An American Music Band / A Long Time Comin' (1968-69 us, psychedelic blues soul rock masterpieces)



I was suppoose to add the Joe Viglione's fantastic reviews about these two albums, but it got me when I started to listen 'm again ( I own the vinyl version), Bloomfield's guitar is ..just heavenly, my man Nick the Greek is singing like raging lava, Buddy Miles beats the hell out of his drums and all the band stands in their highest level.  This was about 44 years ago, the music that flows into the grooves hasn't  lost any drop of its magic. If you haven't got (by fault I presume) these two masterpieces don't make any further mistakes, just get them, add them to your audio player, close your eyes and let the music guide you.
