180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso With Ron McMaster From Original Elektra Records Tapes!

Along with fellow superstars Jefferson Airplane, Steve Miller Band and The Grateful Dead, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was one of the first powerhouse rock acts of the sixties. With their phenomenal brand of Chicago blues music unlike any band before or after them, they helped to usher in the progressive underground rock movement.

With its core line-up of Paul Butterfield (harmonica/lead vocalist), Mike Bloomfield (guitar), Elvin Bishop (guitar), Sam Lay (drums), Mark Nataflin (keyboards) and Jerome Arnold (bass), this amazing band truly delivered many legendary blues and rock recordings during their successful reign at Elektra Records.

Blues masterpieces of the era still resonate today as Paul Butterfield and Co. foretold with their classic signature tunes like "Born In Chicago," "Look Over Yonders Wall," "Mellow Down Easy" and the mammoth blues prog-rocker "East West." With the superstar talents that made up this band over the years, it was not uncommon to hear radio stations play entire sides of their revolutionary albums during the dawn of FM and underground radio.

Later albums would reveal even further extensions of the blues rock genre with classic renditions like Marvin Gaye's "One More Heartache," Michael Nesmith's "Mary Mary," plus more of their own prolific standards like "Last Hope's Gone," "Morning Blues" and, of course, their Woodstock 1969 anthem "Love March."

Elektra awarded The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and their huge fan base with a very extensive and amazing "Greatest Hits" package called Golden Butter back in 1972. Right from the start you get a healthy serving from their first monster release The Paul Butterfield Blues along with more solid tunes from other fine albums like East West, The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw, In My Own Dream, Live and Keep On Movin'.

Out of print on vinyl for many years, it is with great pride and honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band classic Golden Butter - The Best Of The Paul Butterfield Blues Band on Friday Music.

As a first installment in the Paul Butterfield/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this amazing album features 18 of their most important songs from their legendary albums from 1965 through 1973. From the early blues rock sounds of "Shake Your Money-Maker" and the lengthy live epic "Driftin' and Driftin'" to later day album radio favorites like "Blind Leading the Blind," "One More Mile" and the pivotal Willie Dixon favorite "Spoonful," this album truly shows the relevance and importance of this sorely missed iconic band.

Mastered impeccably from the original Elektra Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records with Ron McMaster, this super limited edition album also boasts the original gatefold cover album art and wonderful essay by Tony Glover, not seen in years!

The two HQ vinyl LPs are also protected by polylined sleeves as well as a polybag to help keep the album cover and albums in great condition for your blues collection.
