The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (1965)
This record makes me happy...weird considering it's the blues. Paul Butterfield was born and raised in Chicago and grew up around the Chicago blues scene in the 50's and 60's. When he started the Paul Butterfield Blues Band with Elvin Bishop and Mike Bloomfield, they incorporated their adolescent attitude into their music. Fast, raw, and ruthless blues with killer harmonica leads that doesn't disappoint. The slower more traditional tracks make you feel like you just wandered into a smoke filled blues bar movie scene. They even recorded some some of their own renditions of classics such as Muddy Waters' I've Got My Mojo Workin', Elmore James' Shake Your Moneymaker and Willy Dixon's Mellow Down Easy. I've been addicted to this album since I heard it so I hope you enjoy The Paul Butterfield Blues Band - The Paul Butterfield Blues Band album.
P.S. This is their first album.
