|Bloomfield, Kooper & Stills - Super Session|
The story behind the recording of Super Session is that Al Kooper, having recently departed from Blood, Sweat & Tears after the release of their debut album, arranged a two day session in a recording studio with Mike Bloomfield, who had himself recently left his band, The Electric Flag.
Bloomfield however, failed to turn up for the second day of recording and so Kooper called upon Stephen Stills to step in rather than waste a day's worth of studio time.
The resulting record features the tracks from the first day's session with Mike Bloomfield on side one, while side two has the tracks recorded with Stephen Stills.
Following the album's release and subsequent chart success (peaking at #12 on the Billboard charts in the US) Kooper and Bloomfield patched up their differences and made a number of concert appearances together. Many of these performances were recorded and were used to create the album The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper.
