This historic 1968 summit meeting features three of the era's greatest musical talents: blues guitar hero extraordinaire Mike Bloomfield, multi-talented keyboard visionary Al Kooper and Buffalo Springfield/CSNY founder and ace axeman Stephen Stills. After achieving prominence for his work as a member of the Blues Project and Blood, Sweat & Tears, and for his role in Bob Dylan's transition to electric rock, Kooper hit upon the idea of cutting a rock album using the same approach that was the standard method for jazz recordings: "Pick a leader or two co-leaders, hire appropriate sidemen, pick some tunes, make some up and record an entire album on the fly in one or two days."
The project grew into Super Session, which combines a side of live-in-the-studio performances by Kooper and Bloomfield and a side featuring Kooper and Stills. Instrumental support was provided by bassist Harvey Brooks and keyboardist Barry Goldberg, both of the Electric Flag, and a veteran session drummer Eddie Hoh. Super Session proved to be both a commercial smash and a seminal influence, becoming the biggest-selling release of Bloomfield's career and inspiring countless other artists to attempt similar studio-jam recording projects.
Super Session has been meticulously restored for this colored LP reissue, using Sundazed's usual exacting standards. The album is pressed on high-quality, high-definition vinyl, and features the original cover art reproduced in its entirety.
