A new album from harp master Charlie Musselwhite is always a cause for celebration, and his latest, “I Ain’t Lyin,” is an anniversary of sorts.  Charlie’s very first album, “Stand Back!–Here Comes Charlie Musselwhite’s South Side Band” was released in 1966, and he’s still goin’ strong, some fifty years further on up the road.

Charlie Musselwhite – I Ain’t Lyin’…

2015 – Henrietta Records

By Phillip Smith; Oct. 31, 2015

I Ain’t Lyin’…, the latest album from legendary Bluesman Charlie Musselwhite is chockfull of downhome blues and happens to be a sheer delight.  The album was recorded live in 2014 at the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival in Sonoma, CA, andClarksdale Soundstage in Clarksdale, MS, with Matt Stubbs (guitar), June Core (drums), and Steve Froberg (bass).

I love how Musselwhite takes on Elmore James’ “Done Somebody Wrong”. Click here to read more on Phillycheeze’s Rock and Blues Reviews website.

Charlie Musselwhite is one of those guys who has been around so long it’s difficult to picture a blues scene without him. Once among the first American white musicians to embrace the blues, Musselwhite now stands among the top living blues musicians of any color, and, along with James Cotton, one of the most accomplished blues harp players on the planet.

I Ain’t Lyin’…

Harp players often have that annoying habit of being either too overpowering or too underpowered. Charlie Musselwhite, on the other hand, has been steering a smooth course through these potential pitfalls with total confidence and apparent ease for many decades now. With I Ain’t Lyin’… he again produces the goods, gliding along with complete mastery of both music and harp to deliver an eleven track release that allows his voice to take centre stage and gives his backing band, with Matt Stubbs on guitar, June Core on skins and Steve Froberg on bass,  bags of space to rip it up with emotion, passion and power.

Charlie Musselwhite No Depression Review

“Musselwhite Releases a Gem of a Blues CD and “I Ain’t Lyin'”

As someone prone to hyperbole, or you might say my reviews tend to be on the manic side of No Depression, I will try and contain my glee over Charlie Musselwhite’s gem of a new CD “I Ain’t Lyin'” on Henrietta Records.  The reason I love this CD and why it has been on constant rotation on my car’s CD player comes down to one word:  Tone.  This CD reeks of tone like the passenger compartment of a Rastafarian’s car on a long winter road trip.

The concept of tone has been expressed in different terms depending on the time frame and the genre (e.g. Duke’s lyricist Irving Mills “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing…” describing jazz or Arlester “Dyke ” Christian boasting “We got more soul…” in the early days of funk) it all comes down to the same thing, authenticity.  It just doesn’t get any more authentic than blues professor emeritus Musselwhite on “I Ain’t Lyin'”.

Musselwhite takes the listener to school with this live set of all original material which is amazing in two respects.  The sound is sooo good you would be hard pressed to guess it was cut in front of a live audience.  No muddy instrumentation here.   On the flip side, there is none of that “take 23” crap that tends to suck the life out of some studio performances.  Instead, you get the best of both worlds, the spontaneous ambiance and energy of a live performance but with the impeccable sound of a studio recording.   Kudos goes out to Gary Vincent, who took the live recording of Charlie and his band in Sonoma County down to his studio in Clarksdale, Mississippi to work his magic with stunning results.

Charlie Musselwhite – I Ain’t Lyin’
Format: CD / Label: Musselwhite Music BMI
Releasedatum: mei 2015

Door: Iain Patience

Harp players often have that annoying habit of being either too overpowering or too underpowered. Charlie Musselwhite, on the other hand, has been steering a smooth course through these potential pitfalls with total confidence and apparent ease for many decades now. With ‘I Ain’t Lyin” he again produces the goods, gliding along with complete mastery of both music and harp to deliver an eleven track release that allows his voice to take centre stage and his backing band, with Matt Stubbs on guitar, June Core on skins and Steve Froberg on bass, bags of space to rip it up with emotion, passion and power.

‘I Ain’t Lyin” is a live recording with the action captured over two gigs at Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival in CA and Clarksdale Soundstage, MS, respectively, towards the close of 2014. Musselwhite wrote most of the material here, save for a few tracks that include one of his personal favorites from Elmore James, Done Somebody Wrong.

I_Ain't_Lyin_Review_from_Bill_WilsonCharlie Musselwhite has been on the blues scene for longer than I would care to admit knowing.  He has appeared on recordings  by nearly everyone of note in the business, studied under the best who ever drew a breath and pursed lips on a harmonica, and has helped to take the once considered “lowly” instrument and essentially child’s toy to the place it stands inn today…acknowledged as a true instrument, used in ever musical form from blues and folk to classical, jazz and so much more.  On I Ain’t Lyin’  we hear what might be considered the band’s “festival set.”  When it comes to festivals, a band has an hour, more or less, to capture their audience and hold them for as long as possible with the hopes of leaving with a number of new, dedicated fans for life.  Charlie Musselwhite is good at that, an exceptional harp player, guitarist, vocalist and all-around entertainer.  Click here to continue reading more on Bill Wilson’s review of I Ain’t Lyin’ (it’s at the bottom of the page).
