Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 468/500!
In the early '60s, the prevailing wisdom was that the blues was a music based on
the shared experience of African Americans. In 1965, Paul Butterfield broke that
color barrier. the Butterfield Blues Band debut album became an instant favorite
among blues aficionados. Rolling Stone Magazine includes the recording among
the 500 greatest albums of all time. Downbeat magazine ranks the album at #11 on
the list of Greatest Blues Albums.
Butterfield teamed up with guitarists Elvin Bishop and Mike Bloomfield,
added Mark Naftalin on organ and hi-jacked Jerome Arnold on bass
and Sam Lay on drums from Howlin' Wolf's band. The music that pours from
this album is unfiltered, clamored, and let loose, like blues music is supposed
to be and played with an intensity and pure passion in every bent note. In front
of all these instruments is Butterfield's harmonica, beautifully dictating a
mood and a genuine feel that set the standard for harmonica-blowing vocalists.
The album features a mix of folk, rock, psychedelia, and even Indian classical
music played over an embedded base of good old Chicago blues. Each song captures
the essence of "Authentic Chicago Blues" in a different way, from the back-alley
feel of "Born In Chicago" to the melting ease of Willie Dixon's "Mellow Down
Easy" to the authentic devotion that emanates from Bishop and Butterfield's 'Our
Love Is Drifting". "Shake Your Money Maker", "Blues With a Feeling", and "I Got
My Mojo Working" (with Lay on vocals) are equally moving pieces.
