Mike Bloomfield: The Best of the Boots 1966-74

This best-of CD was assembled for visitors to this Web site from the numerous in-performance recordings that exist of Mike Bloomfield playing with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Electric Flag and Michael Bloomfield & Friends. The material will be familiar to most long-time Bloomfield fans, but for those just learning about the guitarist, it will serve as a sampler of Mike's extraordinary talent. While the selections are by no means definitive, each tune captures Mike at his best, and though the sound quality varies, the playing never does.

Andy Warhol's Bad: Music by Mike Bloomfield

This 1977 release starred Carroll Baker, Perry King and Susan Tyrrell, and featured music by Michael Bloomfield. A sardonic study in bad taste, black humor and whacky excess in the style of John Waters, the film's plot concerns a beautician who runs a side business providing hitwomen for a series of unsavory customers. 

Long unavailable, the movie has recently been issued on DVD with Bloomfield's soundtrack intact. Here, for Bloomfield completists, is all his music from Warhol's film.

01. Bad Theme  
02. On the Street  
03. On the Phone  
04. In the Bar  
05. Marsha and Glenda  
06. In the Garage

Going by the name of the rapidshare files, you didn't post the boots, but simply the Warhol twice.
