Projections is the second album by American blues rock band The Blues Project. Produced by Tom Wilson and released by Verve/Folkways in November 1966, the album was their first studio release and examined a more rock-based sound. Soon after the release of this album, Al Kooper left the band in the spring of 1967 to form Blood, Sweat & Tears.
The Blues Project was a short-lived band from the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City that was formed in 1965 and split up in 1967. While their songs drew from a wide array of musical styles, they are most remembered as one of the earliest practitioners of psychedelic rock, as well as one of the world's first jam bands, along with the Grateful Dead.

This album is The Blues Project at their pinnacle of musicianship and writing. Why the band's other albums haven't been reissued is a real mystery (a box set?), but "Anthology" covers the important tunes from across the band's short life. But I sure would like to hear each album in remastered sound. Projections: Very nice selection of songs. My favored "Going Down Louisiana" is missing from this cd. Blues Project best album in my opinion is the "Reunion in Central Park". One person found this helpful.
Projections is an album by American blues rock band The Blues Project.
The blues project: projections (1966). 1) I Can't Keep From Crying; 2) Steve's Song; 3) You Can't Catch Me; 4) Two Trains Running; 5) Wake Me, Shake Me; 6) Cheryl's Going Home; 7) Flute Thing; 8) Caress Me Baby; 9) Fly Away. This is what the Blues Project should have done more often - an open-door synthesis of beauty and innovation. It isn't much of a blues project, of course, but then again, ʽFlute Thingʼ does convey a blue feeling all the same, and whoever said that by blues we only mean the Chicago 12-bar stuff anyway? This does not mean that the band is somehow pathologically unable to rip it up.
The Blues Project were one of the hottest live acts of the time and one of the first album oriented bands. Not all blues, with certain tunes rooted in folk and this album bearing a psychedelic edge (nearly the American Aftermath ) but listen to them cook through some classic blues standards and soulful originals, and the name starts to settle in just fine. This Greenwich Village group lit up audiences weekly at New York’s Au Go Go Cafe. By the time Projections was released, they had become a hard-edged party band that were well-equipped to extend their jams for a drugged out San Fransisco scene, and their eagerness to incorporate other musical forms and experiment beyond the blues put this band ahead of their time. Al’s Kooperphone (actually called a Tubon) on Can’t Keep From Crying supplies an opening dose of out-of-control psych.
