Quite possibly one of the best Blues-Rock CD Mini Box Sets I have in my fine household (can't tell the wife how many there are lest I suffer serious physical injury - after the mental torture that is) - Paul Butterfield's Blues Band is a very definite jewel in the erratic crown of WEA's "Original Album Series" reissues. When the 5-disc series began in 2009 - 'some' of the first vanguard of 40 or so titles featured remasters (many unfortunately didn't). This beauty is one that does - and from the second the opening track "Born In Chicago" on their incendiary debut hits your speakers - it rocks like a madman on Blues Boogie acid and doesn't let up. Here are the harmonica wails, guitar licks and chooglin' white boys doing the blues details...

This is a "grab it while it's going" bargain. 5 great albums from a great band. If you like the blues then you'll like this. The only British equivalent I can think of for Butterfield is John Mayall, with whom he recorded a couple of EPs now available on the "Hard Road" rerelease as bonus tracks; this is grittier, Chicago blues with some great tracks featuring Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop. Terrific.

This is a collection of the five first albums of the Paul Butterfield' group.
The first two albums are classic and influenced rock music. The first album gives an electric atmosphere to blues, and was one of the influences to Bob Dylan's music to became electric. They are bringing also a clear message to white musicians covering blues songs, do it yourself, play your blues music. The second album is another classic going deep to psychedelia and having real treasures as songs. After these two albums the style has changed and the quality never equalized this of their previous work.
This collection is not re-mastered.

Seminal recordings of one of the best Chicago blues bands! I had owned the vinyl recording of the "East West' album many years ago but unfortunately lost it along the way. Overjoyed to have discovered this compilation and it has been re-released as it was originally recorded, without any digital re-mastering. In fact all the albums in this compilation have been issued without digital re-mastering and the sound quality is superb. The dynamics of the music have been retained. Legendary music!

A must have all blues and fusion/rock collection. the PB Blues Band is maybe not so famous outside blues and 70s rock blues fans (who consider them among the Masters). I found out about them when I was a teen, just checking among the many cds of a little yet specialized music shop. The owner pointed at them as one of the best way to get started with blues.
And it was right.
At that time I bought The Pau Butterfield Blues Band (their debut) and East-West. Here you find both plus 3 more good albums, where you get partially the same moods and flavors of the first 2, plus some slow blues orchestral pieces and some more beat or late 60s rock blues ones. The first album is pure rock blues, even simple but really straightforward. East-west is my favorite, with still some pure blues (but better played and a little richer) plus some jazzy stuff (excellent cover of "Work Song), some obscure and dark ballads (Never Say No) and a great closing psychedelic/oriental/rock piece: East West, where instruments, melodies, solos and Mike Bloomfield Guitar intertwine and mix together brilliantly.

I have always wanted to hear an album of his but none of my friends had him in their collection so I had to content myself with the Super Sessions, Woodstock and The Last Waltz. This was a big mistake. These 5 albums are amazing. As I listen I keep forgetting how old they are. The tunes are excellent and the musicianship is of the highest order. Don't delay like I did. Listen to all of these.

The first two albums are the classics. The quality gradually dips from thereon. Of course you've got to have Muddy and Wolf and Sonny Boy first. They knew and lived the music. But for white-boy blues, Butterfield was top of the class back in the sixties.

Every one of these albums has a different and distinct feel to it. The playing across all of them is of course excellent. Paul Butterfield’s band later spawned other excellent outfits such as the Electric Flag and the Elvin Bishop Group.
