Michael Bloomfield
Between The Hard Place & The Ground

Michael Bloomfield - Between The Hard Place & The Ground

These seventeen tracks have been unavailable for over 10 years. Re-mastered from the original tapes they appear here with extensive liner notes by Bill Dahl and original album art.

By all accounts the sessions were difficult. Producer Norman Dayron, who curated Bloomfield's career from the mid-70s on, is candid regarding 'Cruisin' For A Bruisin', telling journalist Ralph Heibutzki that it suffered a tortured birth. Nevertheless, one could envisage what Bloomfield was grasping for: a no-borders amalgamation of American music - encompassing blues of all styles, Crescent City funk, rockabilly, folk, and instrumentals both atmospheric and electrifying.
