Stumbled across this and got a kick out of it.
Thank you for posting. When the three men showed up it was obvious who Paul was. But I've been listening to him since I was a kid.
That was so cool! "...electrically amplified harmonica..." LOL!
Even if you didn't know which one was the real Paul Butterfield, the dark glasses in #1's breast pocket should have been a hint.
I guessed #2
Boy , that was fun.
I remember the show but never that episode. Paul stuck out like a sore thumb in that bunch even if I hadn't recognized him facially. I think most know that he's not black either but way back then with that panel of New Yorkers who wouldn't know Chicago Blues if it bit 'em in the fanny it wasn't so obvious.
That was pretty cool. Thanks for posting it.
Really enjoyed that. I probably watched that with my parents when I was around 10, had no idea I was watching one of my future heroes. Good post.
That was a great show. Somebody should bring it back.
Wow! There's a blast from the past. We watched that every week at my parent's house.
The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was the first "real" show I ever went to, 1967 at the local high school football stadium. I didn't know who they were. I was 15, and my girlfriend, who was 17, thought we should go so she got the tix. She was a very cool girl, and she was right about the show - it was great, and I bought their record the next day.
I guessed correctly only because he knew how many holes a chromatic harmonica has...
That was really interesting. Thanks for posting that.
I actually got it just from the silhouettes from when they first walked on the stage. The profile with the hair shape. If you just showed me the picture of his face from that, I wouldn't immediately say, "That's Paul Butterfield."
There's a guy who works in the same company as me whose name is Paul Butterfield, I don't really know him so I've never asked if he's a relation, but I'm pretty sure he's not from the bio on our company website. I guess he's the real Paul Butterfield too!
I knew who he was but great clip & man, I may well have seen that show as a kid.
All these years and I never noticed he played left-handed before watching that clip.
Awesome!!! Back when TV was well worth watching.
Internet search reveals that was in March of 1966.
Then I likely didn't see it as I was 15 and way to cool to watch TV with my folks.
Are you sure? Clip looks older & I thought his band was pretty well known & played around here only a couple years after that.
I used to watch TTTT but I don't remember the Butterfield segment. (And in '66 I would not have known who he was.)
I'm only going by what other sites such as this one says ...
And don't forget, Butterfield may have been known to you and to Blues "insiders" but Kitty Carlisle and Peggy Cass would have no idea who he was or what he looked like.
As far as the quality of the clip, that was a kinescope, which is the filming of a video screen image.
They all looked about the same regardless of when it was made.
