Drunk again

Two great songs - really great songs - on this album. "In My Own Dream" and "Drunk Again." Drunk Again is not to be missed. Elvin "Pigboy Crabshaw" Bishop has never been better. Listen to the whole thing, all the way to when he plays the guitar solo. You will be blown away, I promise. And check out the Dave Sanborn sax solo on "In My Own Dream."


I saw them play these songs live (yes, in a collegiate atmosphere: a bar called Mother's in E. Lansing, MI) and was totally absorbed by what they had become, and felt no jazz mistrust at all... Yes, I missed Mike Bloomfield's insane guitar style, but I always felt that Paul managed to assemble a great band around him, no matter what was happening. This one is my 2nd favorite, after East-West, and only by a hair. The title song will also grow on you in time, along with the two previously mentioned tracks in the preceding customer reviews

"It took me a long time to find out…"

This is a classic lp — but one correction on a previous review. The organ on "Drunk Again" was Al Kooper — not Mark Naftalin. Also, the title of the album is singular "Dream" not "Dreams" — I hope the i-tunes people fix this. The vocals on "Morning Blues" and "Mine To Love" by the great unheralded Bugsy Maugh. The artwork is extraordinary, as are the incredible liner notes by Al Aronowitz. The sonic joy of a good ol' lp is sorely missed on these compressed versions of the songs. Nevertheless, listen to Butter's acoustic guitar and Sanborn's sax solo on the title cut. There is also a cool version of that song on Karen Dalton's "In My Own Time" lp produced by Harvey Brooks on Michael Lang's Just Sunshine label, supposedly about to be re-released. Would love to see the entire catalogue up here, Bearsville & Elektra.


Genre: Blues

Years Active:

With a style honed in the gritty blues bars of Chicago's south side, the Butterfield Blues Band was instrumental in bringing the sound of authentic Chicago blues to a young white audience in the mid-'60s, and although the band wasn't a particularly huge commercial success, its influence has been enduring and pervasive. The band was formed when singer and harmonica player Paul Butterfield met guitarist and fellow University of Chicago student Elvin Bishop in the early '60s. Bonding over a love of...
