Charlie Musselwhite- Chicago Sunset

It's dark now.

Blues harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite has a new release today on an unlikely label, Peter Gabriel's Real World Records. Delta Hardware leans toward swampy rock and a few songs have political undercurrents. Here's a fine instrumental originally issued on Kicking Mule in 1978. Kansas City-area readers will recognize this as a theme song for Lindsay Shannon's longstanding blues radio program.

I have that Kicking Mule rekkid and it is signed by Charlie years ago when I was living with the legendary Roger Naber and Musslwhite was visiting. Good for Peter for keeping the flame of Memphis Charlie alive. What a fine blog you keep going here.

Your incognito friend,

M&S- You, Roger and Charlie! That's quite a trio.
