Electric Flag: Mike Bloomfield — Leader Of The Band

Jim Delehant, Hit Parader, April 1968

THE FAILURE of the Electric Flag's first single, 'Groovin' Is Easy', on Columbia is by no means the fault of the Electric Flag. Lack of air play was one factor, and being just another group added to Columbia's hundred-odd artist roster didn't help much either. But, the Electric Flag will happen if their super-star egos continue to think as one. (Groups do have a bad habit of breaking up, you know.)
