"This is available domestically for (dollar amount)! It's exactly the same as "RX For The Blues". Unless you have information that the sound quality is better, stay away. Another reviewer has some insight into the origins of this material under that release."

"Michael Bloomfield's recorded work is often sadly hit and miss The 24 bit remastered CD by Blues kitchen gives exceptional sonic clarity and a really sweet mix to one of the great guitar and soul music masters lesser known recordings.
If this remastering job is typical of quick silver records, I will be checking out more of their catalog soon. Every song on this CD should be heard by 60's blues fans and some of the guitar work ranks up with Bloomfields very best in my opinion. Thanks quicksilver, now will somebody please reissue/remaster the steelyard blues by gravenites."

"In my opinion, Mike Bloomfield is truly the greatest white blues guitar player (with Peter Green a very close 2nd) of all time. When he was 'on' no one could touch his playing. This CD 'Junko Partner' is not among his greatest works. Start with the Butterfield Blues Band's first two CD's, then go on to his work with Al Kooper in 'Super Session' and the subsequent Al Kooper CD's beyond that, then onto 'My Labors' by Nick Gravenites then onto the solo albums by Bloomfield. He lived the Blues and he died the Blues."
