Customer Reviews

A mostly extraordinary album

With the exception of the Spoonful, all the other bands really shine. The Powerhouse actually features the incredible pre-Cream line-up of Clapton on guitar, Jack Bruce on bass, and Steve Winwood on vocals and keyboards. And the pre-Cream versions of Crossroads and Stepping Out are real gems. Butterfield selections here are at least as good as anything done on their own albums - they really burn it up. One mistake must be corrected - Can't Keep from Crying is actually Al Kooper, not Butterfield. And this version matches his other versions that show up on other albums with other bands. Great performances and a look at what was to become an explosive new phase of rock and blues.

Another Extraordinary Bloomfield Gem

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band only had two studio albums featuring the great guitarist Michael Bloomfield, excluding What's Shakin' . What's Shakin' is a great album for Bloomfield fans, for it's just another amazing showcase featuring him with Paul Butterfield...A definite recommendation!

An Unusual Snapshot of a Moment in Blues

Most, though not all, of this music can be found elsewhere on iTunes or on other legitimate releases. What makes this release unusual is that way that it captures a slice of the blues revival before it got "heavy" in 1967 and beyond, and the fact that it does it in a transatlantic way. Lots of collections feature the Clapton Powerhouse material, but very few put it in a context of what American bands were doing, or include the Lovin' Spoonful in the movement. As an album this may not be essential stuff—the chances are good that if you like this kind of music, you already own a lot of what is here—but the tracks you don't have (whichever they might be) are worth checking out.

One track is mis-credited. "Can't Keep from Crying Sometimes" is The Blues Project (Al Kooper's band), not Butterfield.

Right on the tails of the Beau Brummels and the Byrds, the Lovin' Spoonful were among the first American groups to challenge the domination of the British Invasion bands in the mid-'60s. Between mid-1965 and the end of 1967, the group was astonishingly successful, issuing one classic hit single after another, including "Do You Believe in Magic?," "You Didn't...
