On this album, Michael Bloomfield continued the country blues and folk explorations of his Grammy-nominated instructional outing, If You Love These Blues Play 'Em As You Please (1976). For Analine, he worked in an acoustic, often single-handed mode, being the only musician on seven of its nine tracks (and writing just over half the material, too). Such one-man efforts often carry an air of sterility about them, but not here; Bloomfield's version of Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo" retains the jaunty swing feel associated with its composer.

MICHAEL BLOOMFIELD was the first album released on Takoma after Fahey sold up to Chrysalis in 1978. Bloomfield presents another shade of the blues, maybe summed up by track title, Sloppy Drunk, but the album takes on its own ragged glory as it progresses. Recorded at his Mill Valley home and at McCabe’s Guitar Shop, the album features a variety of guests, including old Butterfield mucker Mark Naftalin.
MICHAEL BLOOMFIELD - Analine. Filed under Jazz Related Blues By MICHAEL BLOOMFIELD.
The first Takoma album, Analine, finds Bloomfield stretching out in leisurely fashion alone in the studio, playing all the instruments himself on a selection of self-penned tunes and covers in enough styles to delight any Ry Cooder aficionado, and airing a tenor voice with a slightly cracked heroin edge and a wicked and very necessary sense of humour on the opening Peepin’. Analine can be found with the subsequent Michael Bloomfield on the first of Ace’s 2007 twofer reissues of the four Takoma albums.
