The Butterfield Blues Band: Sometimes I Just Feel Like Smilin' [Elektra, 1971]
Proving once again that artists who make records you admire but never play often end up making records you're not so sure you admire. These days this is a blues band only in the broadest sense--Butterfield sings infrequently if well, some if not all of the arrangements sound like Stan Kenton believing himself superior to B.B. King, and the female chorus must have wandered in from the next studio.
