Paul Vaughn Butterfield (December 17, 1942 – May 4, 1987) was an American blues harmonica player, singer and band leader. After early training as a classical flautist, he developed an interest in blues harmonica. He explored the blues scene in his native Chicago, where he met Muddy Waters and other blues greats, who provided encouragement and opportunities for him to join in jam sessions. He soon began performing with fellow blues enthusiasts Nick Gravenites and Elvin Bishop.
Even after his death, Paul Butterfield's music didn't receive the accolades that were so deserved. Outputting styles adopted from Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters among other blues greats, Butterfield became one of the first white singers to rekindle blues music through the course of the mid-'60s. His debut album, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, saw him teaming up with guitarists Elvin Bishop and Mike Bloomfield, with Jerome Arnold on bass, Sam Lay on drums, and Mark Naftalin playing organ

Like Mayall, Butterfield knew a good guitarist when he heard one, and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band's self-titled 1965 debut featured two of them: Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop. While their dual lead work is incendiary, the entire band smokes on these 11 tracks, which include three originals along with well-chosen Chicago blues standards. The mid-1960s saw a surge of interest in the blues on both sides of the Atlantic; in England, people like John Mayall led the charge, while in America, Paul Butterfield was the great champion of electric blues. Like Mayall, Butterfield knew a good guitarist when he heard one, and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band's self-titled 1965 debut featured two of them: Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop.
