One of my favorite bands tonight and one of my favorite tracks. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and their 1966 classic East-West, from the album of the same name.

Butterfield, for all intents and purposes, spearheaded the genre of "Blue-Eyed Chicago Blues", with their debut release in 1965 on Elektra Records. By 1966 they had gained a substantial word of mouth and FM airplay and East-West, their second album, has been considered essential by many critics as well as collectors.

Tonight it's the title track off that legendary album. East-West, all 13 minutes worth.

Sit back and enjoy.
