Mississippi Son is a summary statement by Musselwhite, after a storied career. A pivotal figure in the South Side Chicago blues scene of the 1960s, he is a master harp player, guitarist, singer, and songwriter. On this most recent studio album, he offers eight original songs along with covers of Charley Patton and Big Joe Williams. This is "front porch” blues at its best: by turns rowdy and nostalgic, but always soulful.
