One of the finest Chicago style blues albums ever made and a magnificent debut from the BBB. Mike Bloomfield's guitar playing is stunning and he and Paul Butterfield complement each other so well. Pity he died so young. Dare I say it but I don't think that there can be any doubt that when on form Bloomfield was a far better player than Clapton; listen to "If You Love These Blues Play Them As You Please" to appreciate the diversity of his chops and knowledge of the genre. The BBB faded after he left to form Electric Flag. This record was released in '65 and was one of the first to cross the black / white divide and turn white America on to black Chicago blues. Buy it! You won't be dissapointed.
