Butterfield Blues Band - In My Own Dream In My Own Dream
Blues New - LP EKS 74025 Elektra
Sealed 1968 Stereo Gatefold Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. “Sometimes, One Has To Wonder Whether The Youth Of The 1960s Were Really As Open To New Ideas And New Sounds As Their Press Would Make You Believe. Take The Album At Hand, In My Own Dream By The Paul Butterfield Blues Band -- Their Fourth Official Release (Though Two Others Have Since Gone Into Their Discography At Earlier Points), It Marked The Point Where The Band Really Began To Lose Its Audience, And All For Reasons Having Nothing To Do With The Quality Of Their Music. They'd Gotten Past The Loss Of Michael Bloomfield In Early 1967, Over Which They'd Surrendered Some Of Their Audience Of Guitar Idolaters, With The Engagingly Titled (And Guitar-Focused) Resurrection Of Pigboy Crabshaw. In My Own Dream Had Its Great Guitar Moments, Especially On "Just To Be With You," But Throughout The Album, Elvin Bishop's Electric Guitar Shared The Spotlight With The Horn Section Of Gene Dinwiddle, David Sanborn, And Keith Johnson, Who Had Signed On With The Prior Album And Who Were More Out In Front Than Ever. More To The Point, This Album Represented A New Version Of The Band Being Born, With Shared Lead Vocals, With The Leader Himself Only Taking Three Of The Seven Songs, And Bassist Bugsy Maugh Singing Lead On Two Songs, Bishop On One, And Drummer Phillip Wilson Taking One Song. What's More, There Was A Widely Shared Spotlight For The Players, And More Of A Jazz Influence On This Record Than Had Ever Been Heard Before From The Group. This Was A Band That Could Jam Quietly For Five Minutes On "Drunk Again," Building Ever-So-Slowly To A Bluesy Crescendo Where Bishop's Guitar And Mark Naftalin's Organ Surged; And Follow It With The Title Track, A Totally Surprising Acoustic Guitar-Driven Piece Featuring Sanborn, Dinwiddle, And Johnson. The Playing Was Impressive, Especially For A Record Aimed At A Collegiate Audience, But The Record Had The Bad Fortune To Appear At A Point When Jazz Was Culturally Suspect Among The Young, An Elitist And Not Easily Accessible Brand Of Music That Seemed Almost As Remote As Classical Music (I.E. "Old People's" Music). "Get Yourself Together" Was Almost Too Good A Piece Of Chicago-Style Blues, A Faux Chess Records-Style Track That Might Even Have Been Too "Black" For The Remnants Of Butterfield's Old Audience. It Also Anticipated The Group's Final Change Of Direction, Its Blossoming Into A Multi-Genre Blues/Jazz/R&B/Soul Outfit, Equally Devoted To All Four Genres And Myriad Permutations Of Each.” Bruce Eder, AMG.... more details

Butterfield Blues Band - East-West East-West
Blues New - LP EKS 7315 Elektra
Factory Sealed 1966 Heavy Vinyl Stereo Original. Pristine Copy. “The Second Butterfield Album Had An Even Greater Effect On Music History, Paving The Way For Experimentation That Is Still Being Explored Today. This Came In The Form Of An Extended Blues-Rock Solo (Some 13 Minutes) -- A Real Fusion Of Jazz And Blues Inspired By The Indian Raga. This Groundbreaking Instrumental Was The First Of Its Kind And Marks The Root From Which The Acid Rock Tradition Emerged.” Jeff Tamarkin, All Music Guide.... more details

Butterfield Blues Band - Resurection Of Pigboy Crabshaw Resurection Of Pigboy Crabshaw
Blues Used - LP EKS 74015 Elektra
Stunning Deep Groove Gold Label Stereo Original. Glossy, Unmarked Surfaces With Just One Spindle Mark On The Side Two Label. “The 1968 Edition Of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Featured A Larger Ensemble With A Horn Section, Allowing For A Jazzier Feeling While Retaining Its Chicago Blues Core. They Also Adopted The Psychedelic Flower Power Stance Of The Era, As Evidenced By A Few Selections, The Rather Oblique Title, And The Stunning Pastiche Art Work On The Cover. Butterfield Himself Was Really Coming Into His Own Playing Harmonica And Singing, While His Band Of Keyboardist Mark Naftalin, Guitarist Elvin Bishop, Drummer Phil Wilson, Electric Bassist Bugsy Maugh, And The Horns Featuring Young Alto Saxophonist David Sanborn Was As Cohesive A Unit As You'd Find In This Time Period. Butterfield's Most Well Known Song "One More Heartache" Kicks Off The Album, A Definitive Blues-Rock Radio Favorite With Great Harmonica And An Infectious Beat Urged On By The Top-Notch Horns. The Band Covers "Born Under A Bad Sign" At A Time When Cream Also Did It -- Which One Was Better? "Driftin' & Driftin'" Is Another Well Known Tune, And Over Nine Minutes Is Stretched Out With The Horns Cryin' And Sighin', Including A Definitive Solo From Sanborn Over The Choruses. There's The Otis Rush Tune "Double Trouble," And "Drivin' Wheel" Penned By Roosevelt Sykes; Butterfield Wrote Two Tunes, Including "Run Out Of Time" And The Somewhat Psychedelic "Tollin' Bells" Where Bishop's Guitar And Naftalin's Slow Ringing, Resonant Keyboard Evokes A Haunting Sound. Likely This Is The Single Best Butterfield Album Of This Time Period.” Michael G. Nastos, AMG.... more details
