There’s a perfect album for you if you have a porch and are feeling low, though it should ideally be playing on a turntable in some dim room, the chords coming out to you through an old, wooden screen door.  And “39th & Indiana” would have to be your choice if you only had time for one song.  Charlie Musselwhite’s debut album, Stand Back! Here Comes Charley[sic] Musselwhite's Southside Band, is an outstanding blues/ blues-rock album—even if his record company, Vanguard, misspelt his name.  So while the spelling may not be so good, pretty much everything else about the album is perfect.

When you think of a band with three guitarists, you think Iron Maiden, right?  The Allman Brothers?  Molly Hatchet?  The Blue Öyster Cult?  You think VOLUME.  You think POWER.  Well, think again – think MELLOW.
