Info for Blasts from My Past

„The title of this album hints at a retrospective collection, or a rummage sale of outtakes garnered from here and there. The presence of three different studio locations provides further evidence that this is something of a quilt assembly, and it is a musical sewing job in which the seams sometimes seem to have worn thin. Fans of blues and rock will find sections of agreeable groove; in fact, there are listeners who will even find the opening track entitled 'Jimi the Fox' to be an absolute charmer, although to others it might seem to be the musical equivalent of a black velvet painting. Tracks such as the Lazy Lester cover 'Sugar Coated Love' are superb, glowing with an extremely warm and vibrant band sound and further lit up with the almost fluorescent sound of Barry Goldberg's organ. As usual with this artist's albums, liner credits are something of a mess. Goldberg fans are used to their idol Michael Bloomfield showing up uncredited or under another name due to contract restrictions -- here he is just plain 'Michael.' Yet no drummer is credited at all for any of the sessions, and there is no information about which guitarists play on which track. The drum seat could conceivably be held by 'Fast' Eddie Hoh, who worked on most of Goldberg's albums, but with recording sessions spread across both coasts and Muscle Shoals, AL, too, it is a good guess that more than one drummer is involved. Whoever is in the band on 'It Hurts Me Too' provides a textbook example of lousy blues playing -- two slide guitarists and the harmonica blower Charlie Musselwhite step all over each other throughout a performance that is painful to listen to, and not because of its deep emotional content.“ (Eugene Chadbourne, AMG)

Barry Goldberg
was a regular fixture in the white blues firmament of the mid-'60s that seemed to stretch from Chicago to New York. A keyboardist (organ seemed to be his specialty), Barry was an in-demand session man — he appears with Michael Bloomfield on a Mitch Ryder album, for instance — along with Al Kooper and his blues-playing contemporary from the original Butterfield band, Mark Naftalin. Goldberg was a member of Charlie Musselwhite's first band, contributing great piano and organ lines to the Stand Back! album (his work on "Cristo Redentor" is moody and introspective, with a strong jazz-inflected feel, while still retaining strong blues roots) and a handful of others throughout the decade.
