 The Electric Flag was an American blues rock soul group, led by guitarist Mike Bloomfield, keyboardist Barry Goldberg and drummer Buddy Miles, and featuring other musicians such as vocalist Nick Gravenites and bassist Harvey Brooks. Bloomfield formed the Electric Flag in 1967, following his stint with the Butterfield Blues Band. The band reached its peak with the 1968 release, A Long Time Comin', a fusion of rock, jazz, and R&B styles that charted well in the Billboard Pop Albums chart.(Wikipedia)



Over Lovin You

 "Mike Bloomfield, The Electric Flag, Monterey Pop 1967. When the Electric Flag began playing, the audience went wild. It was the Electric Flag’s first performance as a group, and the big band sound was brilliant against Mike’s Blues guitar. They were a sensation at Monterey Pop." -- Elaine Mayes


 It’s also worth noting that this was one of earliest performances of Bloomfield with his Sunburst 1959 Gibson Les Paul, which he had acquired only a few moths earlier, in the spring of 1967.
