Even after his death, Paul Butterfield's music didn't receive the accolades that were so deserved. Outputting styles adopted from Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters among other blues greats, Butterfield became one of the first white singers to rekindle blues music through the course of the mid-'60s. His debut album, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, saw him teaming up with guitarists Elvin Bishop and Mike Bloomfield, with Jerome Arnold on bass, Sam Lay on drums, and Mark Naftalin playing organ.

In March 2016, British indie singer-songwriter Billy Bragg and his American counterpart Joe Henry boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station, guitars in hand, looking to reconnect with the culture of American railroad travel and the music it inspired. Winding along more than 2700 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train stopped to pick up passengers.

Label: B&C Records/CAS-1026 | Released: 1970 | Genre: Heavy-Progressive

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
A legendary Heavy-Prog album if there ever was one. And a trio at that. These guys look so cool in the liner notes. Man you get Crane and Cann together and look out it’s time to cook !
“Death Walks Behind You” opens with haunting piano lines before the guitar starts to make some noise. Full sound a minute in, vocals follow. A calm with piano after 3 1/2 minutes. It kicks back in. “Vug” opens with some very impressive organ by Crane as the guitar supports. Lots of organ 2 minutes in. The guitar is more prominant after 3 minutes. They’re cooking now ! “Tomorrow Night” is a somewhat catchy tune. Nice organ solo 2 minutes in.Tasteful guitar a minute later. It ends on an experimental note. “7 Streets” opens with organ. Crane used a device to make his Hammond organ sound like church organ on this one. The drumming is excellent on this track but then so is the whole song. This along with “Nobody Else” are my favourites. Some ripping organ and guitar after 3 minutes as they trade solos. I wish all the songs were this dynamic.

Label: MCA Records/MCA-396 | Released: 1973 | US Issue: 1974 | Genre: Heavy-Progressive

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
This was the first GE album I came in contact with back then. And it was quite a shock, I must say.
Some legendary tracks are featured here, and this album will be the showcase for their great live performances. From basic pop songs in their early days, the band has now evolved into a great hard- rock style tinted with special prog flavours (keys, flute, sax).

Label: Columbia/PC 38590 | Released: 1982 | Genre: Classic-Rock

Is there an ideal song compilation for every band? I don’t think so.
I like Chicago a lot, despite its stylistic changes in its long discography (Jazz Rock to Pop Rock). I lost track of this band after Chicago VII (1977), where the memorable “Wishing You Were Here” appears.
Andrew Lloyd Webber - Variations (1978) MCA Records/MCF 2824 - Original UK Pressing -  LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Andrew Lloyd Webber - Variations

Label: MCA Records/MCF 2824 | Released: 1978 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

This is a genuine oddity in the career output of Andrew Lloyd Webber, growing out of a personal/familial vignette. The piece, a set of variations on Niccolo Paganini’s “Caprice No. 24” (which had previously inspired adaptations by Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Sergei Rachmaninov, and Boris Blacher, among others), came about because Andrew Lloyd Webber lost a bet with his cellist brother Julian Lloyd Webber, and was obliged to compose a work for cello and rock band for him, which was premiered in August of 1977 at a music festival, and subsequently recorded and released on an LP (later transferred to CD) by MCA. At the time, progressive rock was still hanging on to some semblance of commercial viability, and in fairness, MCA had made a fortune off of Lloyd Webber’s work on Jesus Christ Superstar, etc.
