Barry Goldberg (born 1941, Chicago, Illinois) is a blues and rock keyboardist, songwriter and record producer. As a teenager in Chicago, Goldberg sat in with Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, and Howlin’ Wolf. He played keyboards in the band supporting Bob Dylan during his 1965 ‘electrified’ appearance at the Newport Folk Festival. He formed The Electric Flag with Mike Bloomfield in 1967, and later formed the Barry Goldberg Reunion in 1968. Goldberg’s songs (some of which were co-written with Gerry Goffin) have been recorded by many musicians including Rod Stewart, Gladys Knight, Percy Sledge, Joe Cocker, Steve Miller, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Gram Parsons and B. J. Thomas. Goldberg’s first professional recording session was “Devil With The Blue Dress On” / “Good Golly Miss Molly” by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. Among the albums he contributed to are Leonard Cohen’s Death Of A Ladies’ Man, The Ramones’ End Of The Century, The Flying Burrito Brothers’ The Gilded Palace Of Sin, and Super Session which featured Michael Bloomfield, Stephen Stills and Al Kooper. Goldberg also has produced albums by Percy Sledge including Blue Night (Grammy nominated and WC Handy soul album of the year) as well as Shining Through the Rain, Charlie Musselwhite, James Cotton, The Textones plus Bob Dylan’s version of Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready”. In 2002, he was featured on the Bo Diddley tribute album Hey Bo Diddley - A Tribute!, playing piano on the songs “Pills”, “I’m a Man” and “Before You Accuse Me”. In 2005-6, he toured with the Chicago Blues Reunion featuring Nick Gravenites, Harvey Mandel, and Corky Siegel. Their debut CD reached #2 on the Billboard Blues Chart and received a four star review from Rolling Stone’s David Fricke. On July 7th, 2009 Barry’s self-titled 1974 album was reissued with never before released tracks and a restored sound. The album was produced by Bob Dylan and Jerry Wexler.
