Charlie Musselwhite signed cd’s at Down Home in El Cerrito, while supplies last

Charlie was here

Charlie was here

I called up to Down Home to learn there are 8 or 9 signed copies of Charlie Musselwhile cd on sale for a reasonable price.

I might have to mosey up there to fetch me one. (And if Plastic Alto plug is enough to send others stronger, faster and more swiftly such that I am shut out, it’s all good).

Last I saw Charlie was backstage at Mystic Theatre and there was a teenager named Sweat Pea or something sitting in with the band.

I rode a bus with Charlie and a few others from San Diego to Orono, Maine in 2003 part of the Front Porch Blues tour. He asked if he could trail behind in his Harley, but was told the insurance wouldn’t front for that.

edit to add, a couple weeks later: I saw Mr. McCord the manager of the store at the Joe Ely show in Berkeley, from afar, which got me fixin’ to call them at 510 525 21 29 to see if any of these CDs are outstanding. Course, they’re not open until Thursday. I also noted I put them in the next town over, towards Berkeley, but fixed that. No offense to El Cerrito. The Gauchos.
