I was never into the blues years ago, so I am happily rediscovering the Butterfield Blues Band's music. Good music! Well worth buying this two cd set, it's timeless. Read More

Everyone should own the Paul Butterfield Blues Band's first two albums, groundbreaking works that are among the most important and influential of the '60s. This two-disc distillation of the band's entire eight-year oeuvre is nonetheless a terrific overview, with a generous selection of tracks from those first two seminal efforts, plus all the crucial stuff from the band's inconsistent-but-still-worthy later LPs, along with a couple of early rarities making their CD debut.
Disc One is by the original band, a musical powerhouse that began as the toughest blues band in the world and eventually evolved into a free-form psychedelic jam outfit. Disc Two collects the best stuff from Butterfield's late '60s horn band albums; this incarnation was the obvious model for both Blood Sweat & Tears and Chicago, but Butterfield's ensemble was far grittier and more musically adventurous.
Artist Overview
Singer/harmonica player Paul Butterfield and his band were from Chicago and well-schooled in that city's urban blues scene. Their first two albums of modernized Chicago blues not only created a critical stir, but led to large-scale interest in electric blues amongst the then-embryonic hippie generation. Members of the Butterfield band (most notably guitar whiz Mike Bloomfield) also played a key role in rock history by helping Bob Dylan along in his transition to electric music. Butterfield's 1966 album EAST-WEST was strikingly prescient in its incorporation of Eastern modalities. By the mid-'70s he was getting into the post-Woodstock rural vibe with his BETTER DAYS band. Though Butterfield's salad days were far behind him when he passed away in the late-'80s, he had changed both the blues and rock worlds irrevocably.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (2/13/98, p.71) - "...eloquently attests to the PBBB's formidable mastery of da blues, as well as its ability to stretch the genre's ostensible limitations to the snapping point..." - Rating: A
