Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Allan
This is a strong major-label debut that the Chicago-born San Francisco bluesman was unable to capitalize on. Most of the tracks are from the same session that produced Live at Bill Graham's Fillmore West by Mike Bloomfield. Gravenites, an exceptional songwriter and decent singer, benefits from the presence of the amazing Bloomfield. He elevates the fierce "Moon Tune" to dizzying heights with two dazzling, lengthy solos. Quicksilver Messenger Service backs former producer Gravenites on several studio tracks. [This particular reissue features live tracks.]

    A Blues Classic Returns

    After the breakup of Mike Bloomfield's Electric Flag, members of the band did a 2 night gig at Bill Graham's bay area rock theater the Fillmore West. Columbia recorded both shows, and later divided the selections and released them on 2 different LPs, Nick Gravenites ''My Labors'' album had 1 side of selections from the Fillmore West gig and ''Live at the Fillmore West'' was a full-length LP entirely devoted to the concert. This new release contains all of the original ''My Labors'' LP and some choice cuts from ''Live at the Fillmore West''. Especially welcome is the inclusion of the extended track ''Blues on the Westside''. Gravenites is tremendous on this song; there is a terrific soprano sax solo, and finally one of Bloomfield's most searing guitar solos. Another highlight is the number ''Gypsy Good Time'' in which Mike Bloomfield solos 4 choruses, introducing an incredible variety of feeling, intensity and melodic content, a real master class for anyone interested in hearing a walking blues refrain played to perfection. Copies of the original LP ''My Labors'' have soared at auction, so the desire for this music has never disappeared, and now that longing has been fulfilled. Those who want to hear Taj Mahal's guest appearance with the group singing ''One More Mile'', will have to continue to scour the Earth in search of ancient vinyl copies of Live at the Fillmore West.
