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

Posted in lester butler with tags , , , , on October 13, 2013 by J.J.

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.

Remix Devils: Trip-hop experiment

On the hunt for more Red Devils info, stumbled onto the forum for The Gretsch Pages.

There, member tidalwave_sideburns has uploaded a trip-hop blues track with vocal samples from Muddy Waters and Lester Butler from “King King” (can you pick which ones?). In addition, “Cross Your Heart” is used as a bluesy bed for the cut.

It’s certainly different — and actually quite cool. Give a listen to the MP3 “Oh Yeah Baby” right here.
