Charlie Musselwhite - Best of the Vanguard Years (2000) Retail CD
Charlie Musselwhite's superb harmonica blowing is, as ever, a perfect complement to his blues vocalisations. Just two tracks stick out like a sore thumb, and these are the ones with John Hammond, 'Oh Yea!' and 'So Many Roads', with the latter's Jaggeresque intonations well in evidence. The first five tracks are from Charlie's 1967 album, produced by Sam Charters, and featuring Fred Below on drums, with some dazzling guitar work from Harvey Mandel. Charlie's second album is represented here by three cuts, including a fine reworking of Little Walter's harp classic 'Juke'. 'Tennessee Woman' is themore… first of six titles from the 1969 LP of the same name, Charlie's last for Vanguard, and one of his very best. Pianist Skip Rose's jazz-flavoured piano helps drive things along splendidly, and the set includes a worthy couple of self-penned numbers by Charlie.
Also to be found here is the excellent track, 'Rockin' My Boogie', from 'Chicago, The Blues Today, Vol.3', featuring Walter Horton, Johnny Shines, and Floyd Jones. The number soon develops into a version of 'St. Louis Blues', providing a superb showcase for Charlie's harp virtuosity. The final three cuts appeared on the 1994 anthology 'The Blues Never Die' and include an undated session captured on a domestic tape-recorder in Shakey Jake's Chicago basement, with Magic Sam on guitar and Lester Dorsey on drums. The sound may be less than perfect, but the music is sublime.
