NOT TOUGH ENOUGH GUYS

Great work guys!!!!!
Wow!! Sounds Awesome Here!! Big Huge Thumbs!! Big Will 🙂
– Big Will / The New Blues Universe
They are a good band…I like the original better but the harp player and guitarist are good
Saw Paul and his band at a college concert in the 70s.James Montgomery was on the bill with him.A back-bone twisting show.
Thanks guys! I was a junior in high school 1965 when Butter's first LP came out. I was totally blown away with it and when I got wind of them coming to the San Francisco Bay area to perform I knew I couldn't miss it!
It may have been 1966. I was expecting Sam Lay to be on drums, but he had been replaced by Billy Davenport. Every one else Was there though. Paul, Mike Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop Jerome Arnold. I heard they were playing in the Fillmore district, but back then that was a rough part of town for a lone white boy. So I opted to see them in Berkeley instead. It was some auditorium on the UC campus.
I went by myself. The first thing I remember seeing was this lone Hells Angel standing under a strobe light swinging a motor cycle chain around. Up on stage was the opening act, a local group called The Jefferson Airplane. It was before Grace Slick had joined the band so there was another gal singing with them. I believe she is on their first LP The Jefferson Airplane Takes Off.
Finally Butterfield and the boys filed on stage. What a night! I had never experienced anything like it. Bloomfield and Butterfield trading licks, they blew the roof off that place!
After that East West came out, but I never warmed up to it like I did to Born In Chicago, Shake Your Money Maker, and the other great tracts on that first LP.
jimmie vivino was on the the cover of vintage guitar magazine , he is a great guitarist…. tone touch and taste.
All of these players need to listen to the original. Close but sure no cigar boys! Sorry
Thnks for this! Im currently doing a Blues essay on its history and this really hlped!!! x
