Thread Name: Opinion about Paul Butterfield?
Subject: RE: Opinion about Paul Butterfield?
Excellent player in the Little Walter style. Paul put together a band that effectively blended 50s-era Chicago electric blues with a late 60s raga rock edge. I would put Paul in my top ten players. He also had a very distinctive vocal delivery that stayed true to the Blues influences like Muddy Waters who influenced him.
