We celebrate harmonica great Paul Butterfield's birthday with this powerful '66 release. Recorded the year following Dylan's famous electric Newport set backed by members of his band, East-West includes covers of Robert Johnson, Allen Toussaint, Muddy Waters, ....and closes with a 13-minute experimental jam inspired by none other than Ravi Shankar, who passed away last Tuesday. Butterfield's band included Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield, Jerome Arnold, & Billy Davenport.
