The Blues Project was one of the most innovative and influential bands of the 1960s. Rising from the vibrant Greenwich Village music scene, the New York quintet created a visionary fusion of electric blues, folk-rock, jazz and psychedelia, and delivered it with gritty, effortless expertise. 1966’s Projections is generally regarded as the Blues Project’s best–the studio album features the legendary lineup of keyboardist Al Kooper, guitarists Danny Kalb and Steve Katz, bassist Andy Kulberg and drummer Roy Blumenfeld. At the time of its release, Projections quickly became a fixture on underground radio and featured seminal tracks such as “I Can’t Keep from Crying,” the ’60s garage anthem “Wake Me, Shake Me,” Kalb’s epic blues showcase “Two Trains Running,” and the space-jazz instrumental “Flute Thing” featuring Andy Kulberg. Sundazed’s new vinyl edition of this seminal LP features Projections’ rare and unique original mono mix, along with complete original cover art. “After his Like a Rolling Stone session, Al Kooper joined this Greenwich Village band, led by guitarist Danny Kalb, revealed as precocious rock-blues-jazz improvisers and arrangers on this second, storming LP.
