BARRY GOLDBERG - Street Man (1969) + Blast From My Past (1971) 
Barry Goldberg was a regular fixture in the white blues firmament of the mid-'60s that seemed to stretch from Chicago to New York. A keyboardist (organ seemed to be his specialty), Barry was an in-demand session man he appears with Michael Bloomfield on a Mitch Ryder album, for instance along with Al Kooper and his blues-playing contemporary from the original Butterfield band, Mark Naftalin. Goldberg was a member of Charlie Musselwhite's first band, contributing great piano and organ lines to the Stand Back! album (his work on "Cristo Redentor" is moody and introspective, with a strong jazz-inflected feel, while still retaining strong blues roots) and a handful of others throughout the decade. Barry Goldberg'S career began in the early '60s playing with the likes of Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters. In 1965 he played keyboards for Bob Dylan at the now legendary Newport Jazz Festival when Dylan went electric. In 1967, along with Mike Bloomfield he formed The Electric Flag.
