American Blues Exchange ( also known as A.B.E.)was started in the spring of 1968 by a group of students at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
"Blueprints" rare 1969 psychedelic album with a hard-edge blues sound featuring dueling guitars, harmonica, recorder & cowbell. American Blues Exchange, it seems, were influenced more by the British blues-based bands and American rock bands of the San Francisco acid-rock variety, which were spinning blues changes in completely new, non-blues directions, than by straight blues itself.
American Blues Exchange create excellent, tension-filled rock full of an intensity that doesn't have to stand in comparison to the blues because it is removed from the genre.
