The Electric Flag - Groovin' Is Easy 1983
This collection of live tracks and studio recordings provides an intriguing glimpse of what the late-1960s psychedelic blues band the Electric Flag might have become had it not begun to fall apart soon after the release of its 1968 debut album, A LONG TIME COMIN'. "It's Not the Spotlight" is heavily Band-influenced, and "I Was Robbed Last Night" displays some typically stinging guitar work from Mike Bloomfield, who is also heavily featured in the after-hours "My Baby Wants to Test Me." "I Should Have Left Her" is a live reworking of the band's incendiary version of "Killing Floor," while both "Groovin' Is Easy" and "You Don't Realize," also performed live, were originally featured on A LONG TIME COMIN'.
