1970 saw The Butterfield Blues Band release their first and only live album. It showed what their blues/r&b/jazz fusion was like in concert, with plenty of instrumental showcases from all eight members. By then their lineup had changed yet again, consisting of Paul Butterfield (harmonica/vocals), Ralph Walsh (guitar), Ted Harris (electric piano), Rod Hicks (bass/vocals), George Davidson (drums), Trevor Laurence (sax), Gene Dinwiddie (sax/vocals) and Steve Madaio (trumpet). At this point in their history the band weren't selling many records, but were at their peak as a live act, playing big venues all over the country. This excellent live recording stands up today as testimony to their power in concert.
