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.

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"

1.0 out of 5 stars YOU'RE BUYING THE WRONG CD! November 2, 2004
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!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Butterfield's Best: Pigboy Crabshaw Lives! January 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Resurrection Of Pigboy Crabshaw proves to be Butter's finest collaborative work. Incorporating a horn section which includes the likes of David Sanborn, Paul Butterfield creates a type of blues music that is seasoned with just enough R&B to really make the music swing. Easing out guitarist Michael Bloomfield and introducing the young master Elvin Bishop was nothing less than a stroke of genius by bandleader Butterfield. On this album, every musician seemed to be in near psychic contact with each other. The blend was a perfectionist's dream. From the first cut on the album to the last, we are swept into his groove. One More Heartache may be the best selection on the album, but Driftin' and Driftin' gives stiff competition for the top choice. The fabulous harp playing of Paul has taken an amazing turn on this album. He is playing the instrument in an almost jazz style, with rapid changes and incredible tonal control over each and every note. Paul especially knows when not to play. Another favorite selection of mine is Drivin' Wheel. Definitely done in an R&B style, Drivin' Wheel foregoes the harp but relies on the Sanborn sax to drive the music, so to speak. Butter's vocal is in fine form here; I've never heard him better. He's smooth, in perfect pitch and tone, and he packs a world full of emotion into his vocals. To be sure, there are a few less than spectacular cuts on this album (i.e. Tollin' Bells), but I have yet to hear an album with nothing but five star songs on it. This is definitely a departure from The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and East-West, but the experiment proved to be completely successful. I loved both of the previously mentioned albums, but The Resurrection Of Pigboy Crabshaw is a cut above. I personally would have liked to see that trend continued, but Paul was going in his own direction and, after all, creation and experimentation is what music is all about.
