In 1966, I bought the first album by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band
This is track one, side one HOWEVER the person who posted this, added the wrong album cover. East West shown here was their second album. The first one was a real scorcher, a great album – interesting that they had a rhythm section of two black guys steeped in the Chicago blues scene. Butterfield was a very fine ‘harp’ player, although not a great singer. But at 16, I simply loved this album and longed to play in a band like this!
I’d earned the money having started my selling of the Evening News through the summer – I had enough left from a decent Bank Holiday Monday to go to the movies where I saw David Warner and Vanessa Redgrave in Karel Reisz’s Morgan a Suitable Case for Treatment. Irene Handl was hilarious as Morgan’s mum, but I’ve never seen it since.
