(01-12)LP "Sings Where It's At" (1965-Mercury)

Dick Campbell was a Dylan wannabe that never went anywhere. It’s the complete Butterfield Blues Band apart from Jerome Arnold, bass. Butterfield plays a Dylan-like intro to (1) and Mark Naftalin plays a “Like A Rolling Stone-ish" intro to (2). The overall sound is very much like “Highway 61 Revisited” due to MB’s playing. The recording session must have taken place after the Dylan record was out in August (or else history should be re-written!!). Track (4) is a “Like A Rolling Stone” rip off. Maybe the whole thing was meant to be a parody? If so, it’s rather good!
