The Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Before there was the Blues Brothers, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band became the first white (though they were integrated) Blues band of note to cross over into suburbia. They did not have any major hits of note, but by breaking down racial barriers with their brand of gritty Chicago Blues they had a subtle impact. Despite their proficient technical skills, they probably won’t even get a glance from the Hall.

;-) THE MAN and his group played WOODSTOCK.
If you had ever heard them, there would be no question in your mind as to his and their proper place in the RHoF.
Just listen to In My Own Dream...
And the ones who voted No way... you have cranial-rectal insertion syndrome.

This band should have been inducted years ago.
