Burnside/Butler remix: “It’s Bad You Know”

Found on YouTube: A new remix of “It’s Bad You Know” from R.L. Burnside’s “Come On In” record. Lester Butler played the harp lick, which became famous in promos for “The Sopranos.”

The video was posted June 3, 2013, by Russ Stevens, with the description: “THIS IS AN EXTENDED VERSION, BY MARE AND SOLARIS, GIPSY BALCAN BOOGIE.”

It’s different, a little repetitive — even for a remix — but interesting to hear Butler’s harp do things you don’t expect. That makes it fresh, and worth a listen for fans.
