I’ve seen The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Live album offered for sale as a single digital download or two individual CDs called Live and Live volume 2.
It was recorded live at The Troubadour in Los Angeles on March 21–22, 1970 and was released later the same year.
The original Live in itself was a double album when it was originally issued on vinyl.
I should warn you that by this time Mike Bloomfield had left the group and Butterfield had designed to change his sound to a more horn based approach.
Wikipedia describes it as a “blues-jazz-rock-R&B hybrid sound” and I agree. It is NOT dominated by surging guitar solos in the way that many, more traditional, blues rock live albums are. I recommend that you hear the mp3 samples at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.
