Charlie Musslewhite - Delta HardwareCharlie Musslewhite - Delta Hardware

The Sonoma California resident, Charlie Musslewhite’s latest release (5/16/2006) on the Peter Gabriel’s Real World record label proves the 62 year old bluesman isn’t slowing down, just getting better with time! I love him and his music style, and have had the honor of seeing him perform a few times.

The harp has become my fav instrument of choice and no one compares to Charlie! He has been around for decades doing his thing and everyone from the old to young seem to dig his sound. Charlie won harmonica instrumentalist of the year for 2006 at the Blues Music Awards.

Shannon with Charlie MusselwhiteCheck out some of the reasons why:

1. Church Is Out-nice tune w/o harp
2. One of These Mornings-upbeat good harpin’/slide guitar
3. Sundown- typical good soundin’ Charlie!
4. Black Water- slow and soulful
5. Clarksdale Boogie-shufflin’ and hard to keep still during this one!
6. Just A Feeling-any blues fan cannot like this song with a rocky riff!
7. Gone Too Long-good heartbreak song and nice harp tone
8. Invisible Ones-a true to life song-unfortunately
9. Town To Town-melodic
10. Blues For Yesterday-more good stuff

My guess is this Charlie started this journey from his childhood beginnings in Kosciusko, Mississippi through the present. For me it was awesome, I enjoyed the ride. I loved the CD! I give it a 4.88 on the STLBluesometer.
