“Black Hearted Woman” (Lester Butler), from “13 featuring Lester Butler”

Well all right all right
Black hearted woman
Worst thing I’ve seen
She stole my friend Lonnie
Yeah, life should have been a dream

Well all right all right

(harp solo)

Al right all right
You walked through the fire
You came back from the dead
Black hearted woman
Went and pulled him back again
Went and pulled him back again
Went and pulled him back again

(harp & guitar solos out)

Johnny Morgan on 13: “It was a hybrid”

Posted in 13 with tags , , , , , on August 13, 2011 by J.J.

The versions of “Sweet Tooth” and “Black Hearted Woman” that ended up on “13 featuring Lester Butler” were actually the demo tracks, featuring the propulsive drumming of Johnny Morgan.

I spoke with Morgan back on May 29, 2011, at the Simi Valley Cajun and Blues Festival, minutes after he got off stage playing behind Big Pete, Alex Schultz and Willie J. Campbell as part of a tribute to Lester Butler.

In the interview, Morgan talks about recording those demos and how the band was spurred on to get more aggressive, what Butler was listening to, and what he thought of his singing voice, among other observations.
