Description

Blue Million Tears on CD

Carl Butler and his wife, Pearl, were forever immortalized by their hit Don't Let Me Cross Over. It remains one of the all time classics of hard country. But it was merely the highlight of a recording career that began in 1950 and ended just months before his death in 1992. Butler was a hard luck journeyman country musician who played "live" music on small radio stations in the 1940s and 1950s and toured ceaselessly. Neglected toward the end of his life, he lost his farm and his savings, and died alone in a trailer park. His wife, Pearl, who had toured with him for forty years, had died three years earlier. This CD features all of Carl's early recordings for two American labels, Capitol and O'Keh. Incredibly, only two of these recordings were reissued on LP and none of them have appeared on CD before now.
