    i think it's funny that people make such a big deal about "This is impossible to only do 5" i like these cause they make you think..

    1) Jimmy Page
    2) Jimi Hendrix
    3) David Gilmour
    4) Slash

    I only have 4 all time favorites. I like many others, but these are the never changing top 4.

    That's been a favourite album of mine since its release in 1969---I pounced on it, having just been bitten seriously by the blues that year (thanks to B.B. King and my man Bloomfield), and that was my introduction to Muddy Waters and Otis Spann. From there I smoked out everything I could get my hands on by Muddy.

    It was Mike Bloomfield who turned me on to how beautiful a Les Paul could sound; I'd bought Super Session the same year and saw him playing the guitar on the cover and in the back jacket photos and wondered about the instrument, he sounded so beautiful playing it. Only later did I realise just what he and Eric Clapton came to mean for launching the influence that finally provoked Gibson to revive the original Les Pauls in 1968-69.

    The story behind Fathers & Sons started with Mike Bloomfield, in case you didn't know: Marshall Chess (the scion of Chess Records; his father was Leonard Chess) was a high school buddy of Bloomfield's, and the younger Chess was smarting over the critical murdering his "psychedelicised" projects with Muddy (Electric Mud, After the Rain) and Howlin' Wolf (This is Howlin' Wolf's New Album. He Doesn't Like it. He Didn't Like His Electric Guitar At First, Either.) took, and he needed a project to restore his credibility. Bloomfield was coming to Chicago for a set of charity shows with former boss Paul Butterfield and his old Butterfield Band mate Sam Lay and suggested to Chess that he line up a jam recording session with those three plus Muddy and Otis Spann. Add Duck Dunn to the proceedings and that was the studio half of the album; the aggregation then did the charity shows some of which were recorded for the live portion.
