The Paul Butterfield Blues Band - The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (1965). This was the first time I heard the blues played with rock 'n' roll energy, aggression and fire. It was blues taken to a different level - it also had Michael Bloomfield on guitar and he was my main influence, and the reason I played the guitar. When I first heard this album, I literally had to sit down otherwise I would have fallen over - it's a potent piece of work and it still is. The energy is off the hook. Buddy was the first bluesman I ever saw live; I was 16 and it was when that album had just come out, and I went to see him with that band. I saw him in a room that only had about 20 people and he played for four hours and was mind-blowing. Prev Page 3 of 11 Next.
