On August 4, 1998 MC Records re-issued Lickin\' Gravy by harmonica player, singer, songwriter, Wild Child Butler. The recording has never before been issued on CD. Lickin\' Gravy was recorded in 1976 and in 1986 and features the cream of Chicago blues players including Pinetop Perkins, Sammy Lawhorn, Aaron Burton, Sam Lay and Jimmy Rogers. The 11 song CD features eight original compositions by "The Maverick of the Blues," Wild Child Butler.
Before it finally saw the light of day, this 1976 album had to undergo some overdubbing touchups a full decade later that replaced certain guitar tracks with Pinetop Perkins\'s keyboards. Not the best way to make an album, but the results are nevertheless pretty decent, as Butler dishes up a set of his own material, a couple of Willie Dixon copyrights, and Lightnin\' Slim\'s "Rooster Blues."
Principally recorded at The Music Factory Ltd., Mequon, Wisconsin on June 2, 1976 and PS Recording Studio, Chicago, Illinois on June 4, 1976. Includes liner notes by Geoffrey Himes.

On October 1, 1936, a 13-year-old Beatrice Butler gave birth to George, the first of her nine children, in Hernando, Mississippi, or Autuagaville, Alabama. As to how he got his nickname, Butler recalls, "On Sundays some of the older ladies would come to the shack where we lived to visit my mother, and even as a toddler I would grab their legs and tug their skirts. The ladies would tell my mother that she had to do something about that Wild Child, and the name just stuck."
"My peoples used to have parties, all night jukes, and I was still so small that at the age of five they would stand me up on the table to sing my blues," said Butler. "My peoples were poor sharecroppers who worked the fields and I would see them taking their instruments with them when they went to work. They would play their blues during their lunch and any other breaks they might get."
"At the age of twelve I made my first harmonica out of an old Prince Albert tobacco can,"\'Wild Child\' Butler remembers, "I closed in the one end, filled the can about half full of thin gravel, cut holes in the other end into which I moaned, and the swamp-harp sound was born. No one ever taught me how to hold a harmonica, and so I learned to play it bottom up, just like a left-handed guitar player. The sound that I got was so uniquely my own that people just encouraged me to continue doing it in my own way."
Butler lived with his mother and a younger sister in Chicago for a brief period of time in the mid 1940s, but he did not move to Chicago on his own until the mid \'50s. He also spent some time during this period of his career playing around Detroit with such blues legends as John Lee Hooker and Sonny Boy Williamson II.
