Discography

  • 1965 The Paul Butterfield Blues Band - The Paul Butterfield Blues Band

  • 1966 The Butterfield Blues Band - East-West
    East-West, the second album from the Butterfield Blues Band -- and their last with lead guitarist Mike Bloomfield -- found the group branching out from the electric blues and adding elements of modern jazz and the music of India, most notably on the landmark title track, which paved the way for much of the musical experimentation of the late '60s 
  •  
  • 1966 The Butterfield Blues Band - Live at Unicorn Coffee House
  • 1966 - The Butterfield Blues Band - What's Shakin' - Elektra compilation album
  • 1967 The Butterfield Blues Band - The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw
    The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw is a 1967 album by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Its name refers to Elvin Bishop, whose role shifted to lead guitarist after Mike Bloomfield departed to form Electric Flag. The album marked a slight shift in the band's sound towards R&B and features a horn section.
  • 1968 The Butterfield Blues Band - In My Own Dream
    The Butterfield Blues Band has been critically acclaimed as one the greatest electric blues bands ever! Lead by singer & harmonica player Paul Butterfield, their albums have stood the test of time as classics of the 60's & early 70's. In My Own Dream, was their fourth album, originally released in 1968 on Elektra Records. It features guitar legend Elvin Bishop (singing on 'Drunk Again'), and saxophonist David Sanborn. This album rose to number 79 on the Billboard charts. This album is making its worldwide CD debut! Wounded Bird Records. 2002.
  • 1969 The Butterfield Blues Band - Keep on Moving
    One of the last truly fine outings by the band that started the avalanche of electric blues outfits is now available as a high-definition, exact-replica LP! The Butterfield Blues Band had reloaded by the time 1969's Keep on Moving was released on Elektra Records -- Paul Butterfield startled the world with the addition of guitarist Buzzy Feiten, a man whose take-no-prisoners style turned out to be a muscular combination of the sound of his two predecessors, Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop. Led by Butterfield wailing on lead vocals and his patented Southside of Chicago harmonica licks, the band sounded as powerful as ever with a new horn section that included David Sanborn on alto sax, Gene Dinwiddie on tenor and Keith Johnson on trumpet. It wouldn't last forever, but Paul Butterfield proved with Keep on Moving he had plenty of hi-octane gas left in the tank -- and Keep on Moving fired on all cylinders.
  • Released in 1969, Keep on Moving was the fifth Elektra release by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. During a fouryear span the group's namesake and leader was the only original member left from their first album in 1965. Morphing in a similar direction as Michael Bloomfield's Electric Flag, this edition of the Butterfield Blues Band prominently fronted the horn section of David Sanborn on alto sax, Gene Dinwiddie on tenor, and Keith Johnson on trumpet. The band's direction was full tilt, horn dominated soul music, first explored on The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw, which took them farther away from the highly regarded gritty blues experimentation of EastWest and the duel guitar attack of Michael Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop.

  • 1970 - The Butterfield Blues Band - Live
  • 1971 The Butterfield Blues Band - Sometimes I Just Feel Like Smilin'
    he Butterfield Blues Band has been critically acclaimed as one the greatest electric blues bands ever!

Sometimes I Just Feel Like Smilin', was their 6th  album, originally released in 1971. It features saxophonist David Sanborn. It was the last album the band recorded for Elektra Records.

  • 1972 - The Butterfield Blues Band - An Offer You Can't Refuse (recorded 1963)
    An album released on the Red Lightnin' label in 1972 consisting of one side of Big Walter Horton and the other side with very early Paul Butterfield (1963) (See: Big Walter Horton). Contains six tracks with Butterfield, Smokey Smothers on guitar, Jerome Arnold on bass, and Sam Lay on drums. This was recorded at ~Big Johns, the North side Chicago club where the Butterfield Band first played in 1963 -- some two years before the material on the first Paul Butterfield Blues Band album, which was released in 1965. The six tracks include two instrumentals, "Got My Mojo Working" and the Butterfield-authored tune "Loaded." Although this is very early Butterfield, the harp playing is excellent and already in his own unique style. The singing is a little rough and heavy sounding. Butterfield fans will want to find this rare vinyl for musical and historical reasons.
