The Resurrection Of Pigboy Crabshaw proves to be Butterfield'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 is "Drivin' Wheel." Definitely done in an R&B style, "Drivin' Whee" foregoes the harp but relies on the Sanborn sax to drive the music. Butterfield'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. Tracks include: One More Heartache 2. Driftin' And Driftin' ? 3. Pity The Fool 4. Born Under A Bad Sign 5. Run Out Of Time 6. Double Trouble 7. Drivin' Wheel 8. Droppin' Out 9. Tollin' Bells///
