Product Description

CD Description

After Better Days went their separate ways, Paul Butterfield remained signed to Bearsville Records, and in 1975 recorded Put
It Your Ear in Los Angeles and Bearsville itself with renowned sessioneers like Chuck Rainey, Timothy Drummond, James Jameson, Fred Carter, Jr., Ben Keith, Eric Gale and Bernard Purdie, as well as Levon Helm and Garth Hudson of The Band.

North South (referring to 1966 s East West ) was recorded in 1981 at Hi Records Royal Recording Studios in Memphis, and was produced by the legendary Willie Mitchell. It features Hi s rhythm and brass sections playing throughout.

The three bonus tracks include a live version of (Bearsville labelmate) Randy Vanwarmer s Just When I Needed You Most . The booklet features extensive annotation by Alan Robinson.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
After a near faultless run of five great Blues-Rock albums on Elektra Records between 1965 and 1969 (see my detailed review for "Original Album Series" 5CD Mini Box Set on Rhino) - like so many Blues guys - harmonica virtuoso Paul Butterfield seemed lost in the Seventies.

He signed with Bearsville and with his group BETTER DAYS made two albums called "Better Days" (1972) and "It All Comes Back" (1973) that were workmanlike rather than being great. There's good stuff on both - there is - but both are a far cry from the blistering feel of the first flourish or Butterfield's incendiary session work on Muddy Waters fabulous double "Fathers And Sons" (1969) and the great Bluesman's last LP for Chess - "The Woodstock Album" (1975).

This solo album pairing of 1975's "Put it In Your Ear" and 1981's "North South" (also on Bearsville) however see PB struggling big time to revive any of that old black magic - neither is particularly good - and a lot of it is plain awful.

One of the principal problems on saccharine ballads like "(If I Never Sing) My Song" and "Here I Go Again" is his voice - it sounds 'so' bad - straining and almost unlistenable. But just when you're about to give up hope - the Blues harmonica comes in on "The Breadline" to save the day - and the funky synthesizer tune "The Flame" is an unexpected delight (it will make many a CD-R of Rock on a Soulful tip). The cover of Sam & Dave's "Ain't That A Lot Of Love" isn't bad either.

Produced by Hi Records legendary Willie Mitchell, Butterfield tried for slick Funk on "North South" and mostly sounds so out of place. Things improve a lot with the Bluesy piano and harmonica Instrumental "Bread And Butterfield" - great.

3.0 out of 5 stars “…You Can Run But You Can’t Hide…” – Put It In Your Ear and North South by PAUL BUTTERFIELD 9 May 2014
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
After a near faultless run of five great Blues-Rock albums on Elektra Records between 1965 and 1969 (see my detailed review for “Original Album Series” 5CD Mini Box Set on Rhino) – like so many Blues guys – harmonica virtuoso Paul Butterfield seemed lost in the Seventies.

He signed with Bearsville and with his group BETTER DAYS made two albums called “Better Days” (1972) and “It All Comes Back” (1973) that were workmanlike rather than being great. There’s good stuff on both – there is - but both are a far cry from the blistering feel of the first flourish or Butterfield’s incendiary work on Muddy Waters fabulous double “Fathers And Sons” (1969) and even the great Bluesman’s last for Chess - “The Woodstock Album” (1975).

This solo album pairing of 1975’s “Put it In Your Ear” and 1981’s “North South” (also on Bearsville) however see PB struggling big time to revive any of that old black magic - neither is particularly good – and a lot of it is plain awful.

One of the principal problems on saccharine ballads like “(If I Never Sing) My Song” and “Here I Go Again” is his voice – it sounds 'so' bad – straining and almost unlistenable. But just when you’re about to give up hope – the Blues harmonica comes in on “The Breadline” to save the day – and the funky synthesizer tune “The Flame” is an unexpected delight (it will make many a CD-R of Rock songs on a Soulful tip). The cover of Sam & Dave’s “Ain’t That A Lot Of Love” isn’t bad either.

Produced by Hi Records legendary Willie Mitchell, Butterfield tried for slick Funk on “North South” and mostly sounds 'so' out of place. Things improve a lot with the Bluesy piano and harmonica Instrumental “Bread And Butterfield” – great. “Living in Memphis” is very Al Green and the choppy “Slow Down” brings back the big harmonica against a funky backdrop. But the rest is only OK.

But then amidst the 3 bonus tracks is “Keep Lovin’ Me Baby” - an incredible find. A rollicking piano boogie allows him to let rip on the Hohner Harmonica as the guitar licks behind him. It’s fabulous stuff and monster rocking like he should – thoroughly refreshing after all the slick soulless nonsense that went before.

A mixed bag I’m afraid – but there are (as always) those fantastic moments that tickle and thrill. Shame they come a bit more often...
