In My Own Dream – The Paul Butterfield Blues Band


In My Own Dream is a 1968 album by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, a group that blended blues, soul, jazz and rock music. The album features a horn section with a young David Sanborn on saxophone, and marks the last appearance of original members Mark Naftalin and Elvin Bishop. The album was not well received by critics or fans at the time, but it showcases the band’s versatility and experimentation with different genres and styles. The title track is a surprising acoustic number with mandolin, while “Drunk Again” is a slow-burning blues jam with organ and guitar solos. The album also includes three songs written and sung by bassist Bugsy Maugh, who adds a soulful touch to the band’s sound.
