        Bloomfield is awesome! I love the Paul Butterfield Blues Band's first album and "East-West". Also "Super Sessions" with Al Kooper and his Electric Flag stuff. I dig his solo stuff too like "Between A Hard Place And The Ground".



        I think the problem is he died in 1981 after a long decline when blues-rock was at a low point. He didn't get a chance to have a resurgence like Clapton did.



        Killer player though.

                He does not get much respect anymore because like the legendary Tommy Bolin...HE OD'ed and is long dead. It is kind of hard to garner respect when you're deceased and not making anymore music and therefore only fading into the background as time goes on.

                        Bloomfield was good but not that good.



                        He was one of the first young white blues players.



                        Johnny Winter was way better. In my opinion. Which is all that counts.
