"Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story" is a feature-length documentary about the life and career of legendary blues musician Paul Butterfield. A white, teen-age harmonica player from Chicago's south side, Paul learned from the original black masters performing nightly in his own back yard. Muddy Waters was Paul's mentor and lifelong friend, happy to share his wisdom and expertise with such a gifted young acolyte. The interracial Paul Butterfield Blues Band, featuring the twin guitar sound of Michael Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, the rhythm section of Sam Lay and Jerome Arnold and the keyboards of Mark Naftalin, added a rock edge to the Chicago blues, bringing an authenticity to its sound that struck a chord with the vast white rock audience and rejuvenated world wide interest in the blues. The band's first LP, released in 1965, was named "#11 Blues Album of All Time" by Downbeat. The only artist to perform at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and Woodstock in 1969, Paul would continue to break new ground in the blues, and to stand up for racial equality, until his death at age 44 in 1987 of a drug overdose. Through his music and words, along with first-hand accounts of his family, his band mates and those closest to him, "Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story" tells the complex story of a man many call the greatest harmonica player of all time. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.

I am a huge Paul Butterfield fan. He is such an amazing person and I am so happy to have found a documentary about him. The thing I find most interesting about this documentary is how different the lives of Paul and his family are from what we know about the younger generation. This documentary does an amazing job of presenting the younger generation of the time and how Paul was a huge part of it. He is such a great artist and we need more people like him in this world. I was especially impressed with his music and I can't wait to hear the CD. I was also extremely happy that this documentary focused on his music, which I really enjoyed and will buy the CD when it comes out. Paul is a beautiful person and I hope that the documentary gives the public some insight into his life.

I think that this is an excellent documentary on the life and times of Paul Butterfield. He was the youngest of a huge family of musicians. He left his family to be an actor at the age of 17 and worked his way up from stage to screen. His time in The Pirates Of Penzance is perhaps his greatest role, but it was also his darkest and most brutal. He killed his mother, his father, his two sisters, and his young lover with a shot to the heart. He left his family and friends to spend his life in the peace and seclusion of his bachelor pad in the woods. He played with his wife and daughters, but he never really had a girlfriend. I have been a fan of Paul Butterfield since I first saw him as a teenager. He was the first person I ever saw in a movie that had a low-key voice, and I loved it. When I was 15, I saw a concert of him that was very good, and I was very impressed. I knew that he was a good singer, but I didn't really know what to think about him as a performer. I saw him as a more mature, and maybe even more talented, person, but I never really knew how to appreciate his talent. I also saw him as a person who was not that interested in anything outside of the music. I saw him as a nice guy who just wanted to be left alone, and was going to change. I thought that I would never really like him as a person, but I saw that I had a genuine affection for him. When I saw him in the press conference after his death, I was moved. I loved him so much, and I couldn't understand why. He was so charming, and I could see that he was really a sweet person. I was worried that he would change, but I didn't. He made a change, and he still had a nice personality. He was very smart and very talented. He was going to be remembered as a really good person. I think that he would be remembered as a great singer, and a great artist. He is so loved by people, that it's hard to understand why, and it's a very sad story. He was a really nice person, and I think that he would be remembered as a good person.

A strong feature in the biography of John Horn (1918-2001). The film is a highly entertaining, entertaining, and informative account of the life of Paul Butterfield, an immensely talented, creative, and musical composer. The film is unique in its structure, as it is a chronological documentary telling the story of a musician who rose to fame and acclaim only to die in a tragic and unexpected way. It is also unusual in its focus on the man rather than his music, as it focuses on his life at an early age, his rise to prominence and popularity, his later decline and loss of fame, and his eventual suicide. This documentary is recommended to anyone who loves music, Paul Butterfield, or film, for it is a fascinating, fascinating, and informative account of a person who rose to fame and influence only to eventually die in an extraordinary and tragic way. The film is recommended for fans of John Horn, and for anyone who enjoys a documentary that is entertaining and informative.

My family and I loved this movie. It's about a man who started out as a musician but didn't have the musical talent or ability to go on to be a singer or a performer. But he never stopped trying to help other people. The film is very touching. I wish I could go back and share some of the experiences with my family and friends. It has been very inspiring and I am proud to say I am a part of it.

I watched the movie for the first time yesterday. After that, I watched the movie again yesterday afternoon. I think I have finally fully understood the life of Paul Butterfield. I also realize that I have not really heard much about him or his music. I think this movie shows just what a music legend he is. It is definitely a must see for all Paul Butterfield fans and a good movie for all music lovers. I love this movie and I recommend it to everyone. The movie is shot beautifully and it is very moving. I think that the music is just as important as the movie. I think that the soundtrack is amazing and the music really makes the movie. I think that the movie is a good movie for anyone. I highly recommend this movie and I will definitely be buying it when it comes out on DVD.
