Paul Butterfield put the blues into blues harp. In the ‘60s, if you wanted harmonica-led blues music, then you listened to The Butterfield Blues Band. The US combo first made their mark in 1963, but it was their 1966 LP East-West that really caught people’s ears. The band featured guitarist Mike Bloomfield, who has also played with some singer/songwriter called Bob Dylan. Jerome Arnold played bass - his blues credentials stand up to some scrutiny having also played with Howlin’ Wolf as do the credentials for drummer Billy Davenport who can claim to have played with Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and Otis Rush. 180g LP on Music On Vinyl.
