"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Good morning, John.
Wed. 6/2/10 6:52am
Wed. 6/2/10 6:58am
Yes, that was me behind you in the supermarket last night.
Wed. 6/2/10 6:59am
Of course, I don't HAVE to say good morning.
Wed. 6/2/10 7:00am
no, it's always welcome. that store has more flourescent than most
Wed. 6/2/10 7:05am
So flattering on the complexion.
Wed. 6/2/10 8:33am
Good morning, John and all!
Is all of the Butterfield Blues Band like this? Awesome stuff! Also, is this the Butterfield from the Muddy Waters album "Fathers and Sons"?
What a good start to a Wednesday!

"East West" reminds me so strongly of the guy who first introduced me to the track in the 70s. He was a troubled guy, and I lost track of him years ago. I fear for what may have happened to him.
Wed. 6/2/10 8:57am
same butterfield, yes. east west is a standout, as most of their recorded stuff fell under 4 minutes
parq, if your troubled friend introduced you to that track BEFORE 1974 I'd say there is a good chance that he probably turned out OK. But if he played that track for you AFTER 1974, he's probably dead. i'm sorry that may come off as insensitive, but it's musical mathmatics
