Charlie Musselwhite and The Rides featured in this episode of TFTB.

Henry Cook and I hope you will join us this Saturday night, July 23, at 9:00 as we present another rip snorting high octane episode of Time For The Blues! We’re giving you an all out four on the floor experience and want to make sure you are full prepared for this evening of fun!

What are we going to unleash this Saturday night? Well, we’ve got a celebration of all things Charlie Musselwhite! See, Charlie’s got a brand new disc out on Alligator called Mississippi Son and we’ve got a copy of it we’re eager to share with you. We’ve got a couple of tracks from it, but we’ve also got some of his earlier work so you can sample that as well.

Musselwhite has long been a favorite of ours, even before he was gracious enough to grant us an interview after one of his shows, and we are delighted to be able to share both his latest work as well as some of his previous songs.

Harmonica fans will appreciate what the tin sandwich can sound like in the hands of a true master.

We’ve also got Part Two of our look at the super-group The Rides. Last week we had a taste of this fantastic tandem of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Stephen Stills, and Barry Goldberg and it was so much fun we decided to bring them back for an encore. Plus, Henry has gotten more solo work from the three members of the group to share with you as well.

But there is still more…

Last week we shared some sides from Janiva Magness’ new disc and this week we are back with one more tune for your listening pleasure along with one from the duo of John Primer and Bob Corritore.

We’ll be glad to have you ride with us at 9:00 this Saturday night. That’s July 23rd and you can find us at one of these great VPM Stations: 89.1 WCNV, Heathsville; 90.1 WMVE, Chase City; and the flagships, 93.1 and 107.3 VPM-Music and 88.9 HD2, Richmond, and stream online at VPM.org where it’s always Time For The Blues!
