Biography

Harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite’s life reads like a classic blues song: born in Mississippi, raised in Memphis and schooled on the South Side of Chicago. A groundbreaking recording artist since the 1960s, Musselwhite continues to create trailblazing music while remaining firmly rooted in the blues. His worldly-wise vocals, rich, melodic harmonica playing and deep country blues ... Read more in Amazon's Charlie Musselwhite Store

I am SHOCKED that this album has only one review! Charlie Musselwhite is an award winning blues musician, one of the best blues players alive, one of the best harp players alive, and this is one of his best albums! It's fantastic!

I come home from work feeling crappy after being beaten up in the workaday world, and I put this on, pour a shot of tequila, and suddenly the world is alright again!

Seriously, this is a must-have cd, especially if you like blues harp.

Format: Audio CD
C'mon. This thing goes on and on -- more than an hour of some of the nicest, tastiest, musical, (lightly) jazz-inflected (alternatively swinging) blues you could ask for. At 23 years of age, the recordings are novel, fresh, light, inventive, and spirited. If your toe's not tapping, you've a wooden leg -- your spirit not lifted, you've leaden wings. I found this CD in the library and had never heard of Charlie Musselwhite before -- so obviously I'm not a blues scholar. But I know good blues music when I hear it and can distinguish it from the hackneyed, warmed-over stuff that some of the marquee players have released over the years. I'm glad I know now about Charlie. On this record, there's a good balance between harmonica and guitar. The harmonica parts have feeling, depth, soul. What a player. The mixes are first-rate. The vocals are solid enough -- the lyrics, skilled and interesting. There's some sweet brass in here and even some tasty piano on a couple of tracks. This man Charlie can write tunes, with good imagery. He mixes in a few welcome covers -- welcome, not warmed over. What a treat. Thanks, man. For sure a welcome edition to any blues collection.

Charlie Musselwhite

Deluxe Edition Alligator Records ALCD 5612

While living in the South Side ghetto, Musselwhite sat in with the greats of Chicago. He was tutored on harp by Big Walter Horton, and made his first recordings with him. Musselwhite broke onto the national scene with his 1967 debut album Stand Back! He ended up moving to California, but has spent most of his life on tour. Over his 40-year career, Musselwhite has recorded more than two dozen solo albums for various labels. Only a smidgen of his much-admired musicianship is sampled from his three Alligator albums which were recorded between 1990 and 1994. Still, you hear his Deep South influences (especially in his traditional acoustic guitar), probing and jazz-influenced harmonica, and overall laid-back sensibility. Each of the 12 previously released tracks, including nine Musselwhite originals, on this 62-minute disc have been re-mastered.

Musselwhite has lived a hard-life and his melancholic voice reflects it. He is a far more confidant with his songwriting and harp/guitar playing. Musselwhite plays his sensational mouth organ like a freewheeling piano man barreling up and down the 88s on "River Hip Mama". The tempo of "Mean Ole Frisco" rocks and rolls like a bone-rattling train. Here, the guitar, bass, and drums are so intertwined, they roll along oblivious to Musselwhite. "Blues Got Me Again" relaxes as much as it provokes. As if he is in deep conversation with his best friend, self-reflective lyrics about personal battles like "I get to thinking about everywhere I been / blues don't care where you're going / don't care where you been / thinking about a wasted life of women, wine, and gin / looks like blues done got me again" are delivered.

Compilation of Charlie's work on the Alligator label, all previously released except for two not very good cuts. Check out Signature, Ace of Harps & In My Time for his other Alligator tunes.
