To Tell the Truth . . .

Guess it all started last Sat'dy night, listening to Dore Stein's tribute to Captain Beefheart, specifically the 19-minutes long, harmonica/blues-laden "Tarotplane" (would R.J. approve?). Anyway, in a tangential sort of way, I would up researching another great harp player fave, and a typeface (Franconia - for a show - more about that later) - as they both appeared on the Butterfield Blues Band's "East-West" LP, from wa-a-a-y back in 1966.

In another roundabout way (and isn't that what the Internet is for?) this led me to this TV clip with Paul Butterfield on "To Tell the Truth" (circa 1965 approx).
East - West, indeed!
