In My Own Dream is a 1968 album by The Butterfield Blues Band. It continued the trend of its predecessor The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw in moving towards a more soul-oriented sound, supported by a first rate horn section, (featuring a young David Sanborn), but was not so well-received either by critics or the public as its predecessor.

The title cut features a long solo by Sanborn. The drums were handled by Philip Wilson, who went on to jazz renown in the Art Ensemble of Chicago. The LP includes three songs written by bassist Bugsy Maugh,[3] two of which he sings lead on.This album is also notable as the last Butterfield record with original members Mark Naftalin and Elvin Bishop who both moved on to solo ventures of varying success.
