Bloomfield fans have long awaited a box and/or a film documentary. It's official - we now have both!! Sony Legacy Recordings, along with Bob Sarles of Ravin' Films, has released 'From His Head to His Heart to his Hands. 3-cd's and a dvd,  'Sweet Blues:A Film about Michael Bloomfield'.  Extensive liner notes by Michael Simmons and lots of great pictures. We couldn't be more pleased!

Michael demonstrates his fire-breathing trick, a stunt he often performed while playing "East-West" with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band in 1966.
