It very much favored the eclectic approach toward American musical forms that Bloomfield wanted the new band to embody. That Michael could create such unusual and wide-ranging pieces said much for his appreciation and knowledge of those forms, and displayed his characteristic fearlessness when it came to experimentation. The Alt J Relaxer was omitted from the release of the original soundtrack and has not been included in subsequent reissues.
The band made its debut appearance at the Monterey Pop Festivalthe first of the s rock music extravaganzas. Now called the Electric Flag, the group was well received by the audience of 55, though its performance fell short of Bloomfield's high standards. Following Monterey, the band toured the Northeast and perform in the San Francisco area while working on a recording for Columbia Records. Though a critical success, the band remained largely unknown to the general public due in part to the band's inability to complete its first album in a timely manner.
In addition, Marcus Doubleday had joined the band as a heroin addict, while Peter Strazza, Barry Goldberg and Bloomfield developed heroin problems thereafter. In NovemberGoldberg left the band in an effort to bring his personal circumstances under control. As a result, he was replaced by Herb Richwho had to perform a dual role on keyboards and sax.
He had to handle that role until saxophonist Stemsy Hunterwho was a friend of Miles came on board in early He spent the s playing, recording and producing with Lou Reedamong other activities, prior to developing a successful career in Canada as a member of the Downchild Blues Band and as a producer of other artists. Subsequent to completing the soundtrack to The Tripthe band commenced work on its long-awaited first album, A Long Time Comin'.
The album, released in Marchwas recorded between July and January The album was one of the first pop recordings to blend sound and voice samples with music. By earlydrummer Buddy Miles had become a dominant force in the band's musical direction.
The group's repertory by then included numerous contemporary soul covers, featuring Miles on vocals, plus many classic blues tunes. The band produced fewer than a dozen original pieces, mostly The Electric Flag An American Music Band by vocalist Nick Gravenites.
Bloomfield's The Electric Flag An American Music Band "American Hiroshi Kawaguchi Out Run concept appeared to have narrowed considerably. By Juneonly months after the release of the album, Bloomfield quit the group, based on exhaustion brought on by continuing insomnia that was ineffectively medicated through heroin.
In the weeks prior to his departure, there had been much public speculation as to whether Bloomfield was leaving the group or whether the group was leaving him. Miles, rather than Bloomfield, had become the de facto leader of the group.
