Carey Bell – Harpslinger
The Greatest Blues Harpist?
Any shortlist would include Carey Bell fors ure. He was a key member, off and on, of some of the great ands that Muddy Waters led in the 1960s and 1970s. He also made some stunning albums under his own name. A blues musician of depth an creativity (he could sing a bit, too), this we believe, was one of his finest outings.
A bonus here, is the addition of several tracks recorded at the BBC Manchester, featuring just Carey Bell and an accompanying guitar. The intimate setting yields even further musical insights.
