"When people think of top white blues performers from the 60's, names like Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield, John Mayall and Al Kooper come readily to mind. While those guys all have their place in history, so does Charlie Musselwhite. Musselwhite learned the blues straight from old timers like Homesick James and Robert Nighthawk on Maxwell Street in the Windy City. This release, "Stone Blues" is his second solo release on Vanguard Records and while it contains no Musselwhite originals, the ten songs covered here, songs of Walter Jacob, Elmore James and Clay Cotton, provide ample opportunity to hear and enjoy the warm vocals and exemplary harp playing of Musselwhite. These songs have aged well over the years and, while Musselwhite continues to put out great material, these early recordings should not be overlooked."

"This is one of my all - time favorite albums. As a musician playing clubs thru the midwest at the time of this album's release, we covered a number of these tunes. I had lost the album some time ago so it was quite exciting to finally get a copy of the music on CD. Until I played it. Whoever mixed it for this release left some horrible artifacts from the master tapes that were cleaned up for the original album pressing. Also, someone thought it would be a GOOD idea to throw a long delay/reverb on the vocal tracks. Again not on the album. I guess the hunt for the original goes on. Bummer!"
Very good and vibrant soul

"Good example of '60 white blues ,in this cd performs with excellent guitarist Tim Kaihatsu and in the total listening it don't seem out time.
My favorite Clay's tune track is an aggressive soul blues played with verve.
