Butterfield was an original. Like a few others(Hendrix, the Band, Otis Redding) he actually synthesized and personalized the blues so that not only was it "new" music, but instantly recognizable. "Pigboy" is a giant step from "East-West". The catchy horns of Sanborn & co. intermingled with Paul's ungodly harp create a new direction any cat who claims to like the blues should appreciate. Forget the traditionalists who think paul's blues are sacrilegious---Butterfield took blues in HIS direction, and consequently created a harp-driven, horn laced sound that has never been equaled. Check out "One More Heartache, "Run out of Time", "Drivin' Wheel", and "Driftin' and Driftin'". Butterfield's harp and very much underrated vocals are guaranteed to hook you.

1.0 out of 5 stars YOU'RE BUYING THE WRONG CD! November 2, 2004
By BOB
Format:Audio CD
Yes, this is the great PBBB's 3rd album, but it's not the CD you should be buying.

This domestic CD was released in 1989 and has never been remastered.

The import 2CD version of this title (backed with the PBBB's 4th "In My Own Dream") is the one to get. It was remastered in 2004.

Ditto for "The Paul Butterfield Blues Band" & "East West"; the 2004 import 2CD is also remastered (and sounds incredible) and the domestic CD's are not.

Why WEA and Elektra have not made these four remasters available domestically is a mystery.

Don't waste your money on these inferior versions: Get the imports!

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably the best RELEASED Butterfield album October 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The all around musicianship on this album is top notch! The addition of the horn section (that included none other than a very young looking David Sanborn) makes this a very dynamic, and spirited recording. Elvin Bishop is featured throughout (hence the Resurrection of P.C.) and Bugsy Maugh's vocal in "Drivin' Wheel" makes this particular track an album highlight. Every track has great moments; in particular "One More Heartache", and "Driftin'and Driftin'". A MUST buy for all Butterfield admirers!
Hopefully, someone will someday will release to CD the 1969 Butterfield album "In My Own Dreams"
Also recommended: "The Original Lost Elektra Sessions"

4.0 out of 5 stars Resurrection? Hardly. Insurrection? More Like It. July 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The skinny: guitarmeister Mike Bloomfield had bolted the Butterfield band following their masterwork "East-West," Bloomfield having fallen in love with San Francisco and an idea he got for a hot horn band that might yank the whole of indigenous American music into a blues-rooted group (this turned out to be the short-lived but memorable enough Electric Flag). Drummer Billy Davenport left for jazzier pastures; bassist Jerry Arnold seemed to have had it with the road. Leaving Paul Butterfield, Elvin Bishop and Mark Naftalin in search of new teammates. Butterfield, though, had his own idea for a hot horn lineup, and brought it together from a pack of R and B and jazz-laced players and rhythm meisters.
"The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw" (Pigboy Crabshaw, for those who haven't guessed by now, was Bishop's nickname in the band, much as Eric Clapton was known to his Cream bandmates as Captain Madman) was the first result. It wasn't exactly as overwhelming or as freewheeling as the incandescent, somewhat experimental "East-West," but don't let that stop you: this first flight of the new brassy Butterfield Band plain smoked. (It still does, even if the thin production means docking the album a star.) Butterfield was gunning for big game in his own right, mixing in a solid soul front to his usual brand of bristling blues. Elvin Bishop steps forward as the band's official lead guitarist for the first time and, while he's not exactly Mike Bloomfield (really: WHO was?), he showed his own identity and made it a credible one with smooth, spare but sinewy fills and solos when handed off. Bassist Bugsy Maugh is a strong vocalist in his own right ("Drivin' Wheel") and he teams with one-time Wilson Pickett drummer Philip Wilson to give Butterfield a thick rhythm.

4.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked classic May 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Coming on the heels of "East-West", this work helped introduce serious blues to a lot of American kids in the psychedelic era. While British bands like Cream, Yardbirds, the Rolling Stones and later Led Zeppelin had long incorporated blues effectively in their repertoires, there were few Americans save Jimi Hendrix (a product of mid '60's British rock)who were playing anything resembling serious blues. What made The Paul Butterfield Blues Band unique was the incorporation of a horn section. Most other rock/blues artists relied almost entirely on the "power trio" of guitar, bass and drums. This was what made "..Pigboy Crabshaw" so special as an album. The use of horns, most effectively on "One More Heartache", and "Pity the Fool" brought some unique authenticity to this record and band. While Butterfield has reasonably been associated with the Chicago style of Muddy Waters and others, "Driftin and Driftin" and several other cuts on this record show a broader base and knowledge. This is a truly fine collection.
