The Butterfield Blues Band (starring Mike Bloomfield on lead guitar)
Some of Michael Bloomfield's most inspired guitar playing. "Starting with the second section Michael played lead on a series of sections where he explored different modes, or scales, some of which were suggestive of Indian or Arabic music and some of which were North American, as in blues, country & western or Mexican" (Tom Ellis III, "Paul Butterfield: The Glory Years").
