Paul BUTTERFIELD - Put It In Your Ear 1976

Paul BUTTERFIELD - Put It In Your Ear 1976


Unfortunately, everybody thinks they're some kind of reference to "what is" and "what ain't" the blues.....this isn't
a giant among Butterfield's work, but has some of his personal favorites on it as he wanted to explore genres beyond straight 1,4,5 structures. Recorded relatively late in his short existence, it's definitely worth collecting if you are a fan! Breadline would be one of the blues tunes by the way cowlick!

Paul Butterfield died of heart failure in 1987.

Like most Chicago-style amplified harmonica players, Butterfield played the instrument like a horn -- a trumpet. Although he sometimes used a chromatic harmonica, Butterfield mostly played the standard Hohner Marine Band in the standard cross position. He was left-handed and held the harp in his left hand, but in the standard position with the low notes facing to the left. He tended to play single notes rather than bursts of chords. His harp playing is always intense, understated, concise, and serious.

The effect of the Butterfield Blues Band on aspiring white blues musicians was enormous and the impact of the band on live audiences was stunning. Butterfield the performer was always intense, serious, and definitive. He is one of the finest harp players (period).

Butterfield and the six members of the original Paul Butterfield Blues Band made a huge contribution to modern music, turning a whole generation of music lovers onto the blues as something other than a quaint piece of music history.
