Following their successful debut, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band convened in July 1966 to record their second album, East-West. Recorded at the famed Chess Studios in Chicago, this session marked many changes for the band. Original drummer Sam Lay was forced to leave the band due to illness and was replaced by Billy Davenport. Lead guitar duties, handled exclusively by Mike Bloomfield on the first LP, were now shared with fellow guitarist Elvin Bishop. The biggest change, however, was the evolution of their musical direction. While the album included traditional blues covers like its predecessor, the title track, written by Bloomfield & Nick Gravenites, displayed a distinct Indian influence, echoing the raga experiments of John Coltrane and incorporating modal jazz elements introduced by Miles Davis on his legendary Kind of Bluealbum. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Butterfield
