Subject: RE: Help: Charlie Musselwhite Chromatic Harmonica
Art: And sometimes with Erwin Helfer on piano and/or Big Joe Williams singing. Oh, in lots of clubs, they were. Great stuff. I hung with them frequently. Pete Welding (he of Downbeat & Testament records) introduced me to them and nearly every blues man in the city. It was a hell of a kick watching the stares in upscale Carl Sandburg Village when Bloomfield in bare foot & full scruff would saunter through the lobby to his apartment - "What's HE doing here?" Charlie was suberb even then but looking more like Li'l Abner than the been-through-the-mill-looking blues man of many years later. I wish I'd had the opportunity to meet yerself back then. Good days, yes. I did get the chance to learn just a tad about blues.
