Thread Name: Opinion about Paul Butterfield?
Subject: RE: Opinion about Paul Butterfield?
Well I don't know how you judge or compare, but he was certainly a very effective blues harmonica player. I bought the first PB Blues Band album recorded in 1965 when it came out (it was only the second album I ever bought) and absolutely loved it. Still do, only now it's the CD.

I thought the second album was 'good and bad in parts' and I didn't much like what I heard of the subsequent ones so I didn't bother getting them.

The 'lost' first album, i.e. the one which would have been the first album if they hadn't shelved the tapes, is also now available as 'the lost Elektra sessions' and is pretty good too.
