Ever Wonder who the second Jew was?
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The main reason to acquire this double title is to obtain a copy of "Two Jews Blues". The first title "Reunion", is mainly an unfocused r & b/soul/blues song collection with dull singing and some groovy organ in places. These two albums should never have been packaged together. Two Jews Blues is really surprising. It is definitely "white boy" blues but, the groove, the writing and most especially "Great" on guitar is scintillating at times. Listen to Jimi the Fox and Blues for Barry and..."Great" was Mike Bloomfield playing lead for the entire session. Based on his catalogue this album should have been recognized for some of his best, cleanest, least cliche`driven soloing. Unfortunately, because Mike was under contract to another label (hence the psuedenom) the music was not be marketed accordingly. Regrettably the album just languished in the bins and then was deleted without many of his Butterfield and Flag fans finding out about it. If you are a Bloomfield fan your collection has a serious gap that needs filling!"
This record is a pearl in my collection

"whenever you could find the session with barry goldberg,harvey mandel, charlie musselwhite and others - you will find out the best music on the world. A realy blues from the heart and for the heart. Simply the truth (as said mr. John Lee Hooker)"
