Was listening to their greatest hits CD this morning. Halfway through East-West I was struck with how much the Bishop/Bloomfield guitar interaction was to the Betts/Duane interaction on Liz Reed.

They were a great band. Crazy about Mike Bloomfield (Elvin Bishop ain't too bad either)!

saw Butterfield in his last 10-15 years when he was playing,on & off,with Rick Danko---saw him the week prior to his death at a club called Uncle Willies in Kingston,Ny--some great shows there

never got to see Bloomfield live always a big fan---loved the electricity he added to Dylan's sound

That whole time frame for Dylan (going electric) is amazing. It was Bloomfield's mastery that led to the haunting organ on Like A Rolling Stone. Al Kooper was so blown away by Bloomfield that he put down his guitar and sat at the organ. Not really being an organ player he was a beat behind everyone else. The producer was pissed off; Dylan in his genius loved the effect. He told the sound man to crank up the organ.

Nice comparison! Duane was a big fan of Mike Bloomfield and vice-versa!

One of my all time favorite bands. Better Days was good as well.

God Bless Paul Butterfield.

Caught Bloomfield with Electric Flag at the Bottom line in like 73 . Paul Butterfield and Muddy Waters played sat in for a couple of tunes.

I was walking around after the show and we bumped in Mike and I said great show. He goes "your kidding me, you were at my show, how old are you?" I was 14. He said "your 14 and your in the city listening to the electric blues, that's cool little man, thats cool"

Excellent band, and IMHO they were the "blueprint" for the Allman Brothers Band. By that I mean they were one of the first integrated band, playing for the a "hippy audience" but still respecting and having the respect from established blues artist such as Muddy Waters, ect., but more important they were probably one of the first blues band that incorporated other genre of music into what they were playing. No doubt, this made a big impression on the members of the orginal Allman Brothers Band as they took this idea (especially incorporating jazz improvations) into their own music. FWIW I never thought the Butterfield Blues Band ever got the respect and reconigition they deserve for how much they effected American music.

As I have started to get into the PBBB, I have thought these exact things before. To take it a step further, I also see them being a direct influence on the DTB, especially with the eastern influence prevalent on "East-West" and to a lesser extent "Work Song"

I totally agree! Not to mention the fact that Derek is now doing the Toussaint song Get Out of My Life Woman, a song the Butterfield Blues Band played on their 2nd lp. Thrills me to no end!

My older brother turned me on to the LP "The Paul Butterfield Blues Band" around 67. Still listen to them a lot. In fact you can hear a great live version of "Walking Blues" Paul Butterfield Better days at www.peachcorps.com/slimzimm. I've got a ton of boots. Can't forget about Duane playing with Elvin Bishop on Drunken Hearted Boy - Fillmore Concerts.

Paul's Better Days band was AWESOME!! Some of the best music I've ever heard! Amos Garrett blows me away!

Hey Pixielf, I downloaded a Butterfield show last week off Dime. Your name "Pixielf" was listed in the lineage of the show.
