"Featuring Rock’s First Great Guitar Tandem in Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Were Quite Possibly the Best Live Band Around in 1966. Before The Beatles ’Revolver, Before The Byrds’ Fifth Dimension, Their Album East-West Brought Eastern Modalities and Lengthy Improvisations into Blues-Based Rock, Setting the Stage for the Psychedelic Revolution to Come.
This Legendary Bootleg Captures the Band Right Around the Release of East-West and Includes Material from That Album “Work Song” and “I Got a Mind to Give Up Living” Feature Jaw-Dropping Solos from Mike Bloomfield That Point the Way Towards a Whole New Way of Electric Guitar Playing.
This Double-LP Release for Record Store Day Includes Four Unreleased Tracks, Featuring Bloomfield’s Vocal Turn on “If You See My Baby,” Bishop’s Take on Percy Mayfield’s “Danger Zone,” and Bassist Jerome Arnold’s Rollicking Vocals on “In the Midnight Hour” (with Another Fantastic Bloomfield Solo) and “You’re So Fine.”
