Charlie and his bassist wife Kerry were a perfect touring package - Charlie with just about the best blues harmonica technique and startlingly original musical ideas and Kerry perfectly attuned to him. Sadly, that combination only lasted one UK tour.
They cut this set in a US studio with their then current band. What an album - new songs from Charlie - and he has a way with words that matches his harp playing and singing - with a tough little blues band who knew his music with the second harmonica of Larry Wise.This is the complete session, now 25 years old.
Frustratingly, it’s superb and highly original but by an artist very few people have heard of.

1. AllMusic - Thom Owens
Charlie Sayles' Night Ain't Right is an impressive comeback, finding the harpist in prime form. The key to the record's success is the way Sayles twists conventions around, finding tastes of flourishes funk and jazz within the genre's boundaries. His willingness to play with the music is the reason why Night Ain't Right is a modern-day Chicago blues record worth exploring.
