Thread Name: Opinion about Paul Butterfield?
Subject: RE: Opinion about Paul Butterfield?
Interesting thread.
I've played the blues harmonica at pro level since the mid 60's,and I saw Paul twice in London in '66 and once around '84.
In my opinion he was one of the greatest of all time and stands alongside Little Walter.
His tone and note choice was incredible and his sound was pulled from his diaphragm with great technique.
He was more than a populariser,he was a great original!
