Outside of Blood,Sweat and Tears The Electric Flag was one of the first horn bands on a large scale to merge rock/blues/jazz etc in their sound.

Don't forget "The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield & Al Kooper" from the Fillmore West in 1968. That was pretty much Bloomfield's "coming out" party as a monster player.

The Electric Flag were the first band musically described with the term "heavy metal". Odd to say the least.

Why are all their original studio albums still out of print? When will they be reissued?

The first USA based Band composed of mainly a horn section that blended Jazz-Classical-Rock and a World Music never heard before was Don Ellis. His "Tears of Joy" Band could rock out with the finest! He came along in 1968 and was featured at The Filmore West especially Don Ellis "live" at The Filmore. Nobody could put on a show like Ellis, nobody. So I made a Feature Doc on the life of Don Ellis.. ELECTRIC HEART. www.donellisfilm.com And since we talk about horn bands that bridged the gap between jazz-rock and blues, how about "Cold Blood" and Lydia Pense, a complete knockout, incredible horns and some of the best original music ever written! Yes, ELECTRIC FLAG as short lived as they were should be considered, of course Tower of Power. Chicago and BS&T should be catagorized as more Commerical. Bloomfield whether it be The Paul Butterfield Band, Mother Earth, Michael Bloomfied and Friends, Al Kooper's Super Session or any other Band he recorded with should be set aside as simply "Michael Bloomfield" one of the purest best Blues Guitarists of all time! @JEV1A
