Butch C/u - Jean Carter

Posted

This is one of the few records that would benefit from having the vocals removed & being turned into an instrumental dancer (the vocals are that poppy and crap).

Can't say its a track I'd ever want to listen to away from a nighter venue, much better sticking with sumat with decent soulful vocals for real listening purposes.

 

I tend to agree with you - but boy does it (and she) sound good when you're blocked on the dancefloor at a nighter!

I'm guessing this was done without him knowing, snide trick that IMO.

 

snide is understatement ,no doubt someone snide will do a carver  from that youtube clip.

I do think some have a tendency to think that we're all influenced by the rarity of a record rather than its content, which in my case just isnt true. I've heared this said of records like Buddy Smith and the Prophets (Shrine). I had no idea of their rarity when first hearing them, just that they were both utterly amazing records.

Not a big fan of Love Slave though, but can completely get why some would like it, again like JC when bursting out of the speakers at a nighter.

Right there Byrney, but IMHO Buddy Smith is not up for debate, plain and simply an incredible SOUL record, some might say its Northern, some would even say its Deep, rare or not rare just incredible. Antellects on the other hand does nowt for me, and can understand debate rarity over quality etc

WTF the vocals compliment the superb orchestral backing IMO.....maybe bit poppy but crap, go get your hearing checked out lol.....like in previous posts when you hear this over a good sound system and loud it has that special vibe that most appreciate.....not heard it out for a long time about time Butch sold it on to a dj that plays it out lol.....

Just re-read this old thread, all those who said this record was "poppy" and not very good need to go & give their head a sheck to coin a phrase! 

One of the finest northern tracks ever to grace the scene, a perfect dancing record which sadly I haven't had the opportunity to do so for a long time now.......☹️

Then when this one ends you get the Mighter Lovers - wallop.

Some folks are crying out for old school northern still. Jean Carter fits that bill. 100 club only place to hear both on a regular basis. Note to self: get back down those stairs- Soon!

I find it laughable mate when records like this get slagged off.  Ok it might not be as black or soulful as some southern soul artist, but we aren’t talking chill out rooms here. It is a full on dancer, the type of record the niter scene has thrived on and the thpe of record it is crying out for now.

It's a one-off Decca acetate - unknown artist, title "I Wanna Know" - which Butch has been playing for well over 20 years as Jean Carter. It's absolutely brilliant dancefloor dynamite, proper Northern Soul, old school, 100mph and atmospheric. It's not available on YouTube but it should be on this recording live from the 100 Club in 2001 - 

It's after Jesse James "Love Is Alright" (another one of his brilliant one-off discoveries) at 21 minutes in. If you don't feel it, you had to be there.

That falls into what I would call the 'Northern soul' category, fully driving girlie dancer, absolute quality!

What can you say though? Butch innit! That whole tape is soul gold!

Stellar, thanks lads for turning me on to it! :hatsoff2:

To true  if the masses don't appreciate this there's no hope.  When ever I see butch  he knows of what I'm gonna ask him to play.  . This little beaut .my musical tastes may have mellowed over the last few years .to more crossover and modern but get this on the decks and I'm there full on ripping the floor up.

No, not having that. Its the whole package that makes it a classic. Poppy and crap? Never heard such poppy cock. Hearing this out at 3 am full blast is what it all about. Can't argue with the last paragraph though.

Two very good tunes Ted but still outclassed by Martha Jean Love’s ‘Old Time Lover’, Joseph Webster, Walter and the Admerations, Parisians and a few others. Of course it depends on the tempo you prefer at whatever stage of the night you’re at, but whether it’s an exclusive to Butch or one of three known copies, he sure has the magic touch.

Mighty Lovers cover up is the dogs dandles never been so excited to hear a record since the Just Brothers and early days of Jesse James,the clip above does not do that record justice. Love Jean Carter also its longevity says the lot. I rarely get to hear Butch these days last time was Guys 60th but the MIGHTY LOVERS is the essence of the northern soul scene played loud its simply mind blowing.

I'm sure there was a WCD cover up that someone (i thought Butch) was playing. Maybe i've made it up! Hazy memory...
