The Electric Flag Featuring Erma Franklin Live At The Carousel 1969 on 2LP

In 1967, the already legendary guitarist Mike Bloomfield left the Paul Butterfield Blues Band to form The Electric Flag. Along with Barry Goldberg, Buddy Miles, Nick Gravenites and Harvey Brooks the band's mission was to perform "American Music." The new group made their public debut at the legendary Monterrey Pop Festival in June 1967 and released their debut album in March 1968.

The horn infused hard bluesy rock played by Electric Flag was shortly followed by Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago and others as a new stylistic fusion. Erma Franklin, Aretha's older sister, was a fine soul singer in her own right, and may best known for recording "Piece of My Heart" which was later covered by Janis Joplin.

This concert, recorded at San Francisco's legendary Carousal Ballroom in April of 1968 features the band alone and backing Erma through a generous set of tunes sure to please rock, blues and soul fans everywhere.
