Paul Butterfield Blues Band – “All These Blues” from East/West (1966)
Well I’ve been away, folks, but I’m back. This “real life” thing sometimes gets in the way of blogging. I hope you all understand, and I hope you’ll stick with us.
Anyway, this is another standout track featuring the harmonica. The Butterfield Blues Band is perhaps best known as Bob Dylan’s backing band (sans Butterfield himself) at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, which was Dylan’s first performance using electric instruments.
I love Butterfield’s beefy, amplified harp sound. My only qualm with this album is that there’s not enough harmonica.
