33 tours très rare qui rassemble pratiquement tout les musiciens de Bloomfield juste après "My Labors" !
Nick est à la production tandis que Mike participe a l'écriture...
"Southern Comfort" propose exactement les mêmes recettes que sur "My Labors" un mélange efficace de soul/gospel/R&B...
Vous noterez d'ailleur la version studio de "Love Got Me" déjà présente sur le 33 tours "Mike Bloomfield Live At The Fillmore West"
L'interprètation en général est de haut niveau malheureusement le chant et les compos sont moyens...album très interressant quand même !  

My name is Bob Jones. I was co-leader ( with Fred Burton ) of Southern Comfort. We were Memphis Soul freaks. ( Booker T, Otis, etc. )

Many songs were original. Wild Western Cheeta, Mountain Girl, Come and Sit, etc. ). Although Mike contributed writing and Nick produced, they did not play.

I'm on five other Bloomfield albums. I started with We Five as lead guitar player but was playing drums by Southern Comfort time. Janice wanted Fred and I to join her soul band but we wanted her to use all of the group so it never happened.

One of our bass players ( Karl Severied ) now plays with Robert Cray.

Ron Stallings ( the other singer besides me ) plays with Huey Lewis.

I played with Mike on the road for ten years after SC and eventually returned to my home state of Hawaii where I continue to play.

Thanks for recognizing us and our work. We were popular with the players at the time ( like Tower of Power ) and in the bay area but couldn't get help from CBS to break out nationally.
