Charlie Musselwhite is a living legend. You know, one of those rapidly disappearing kind of dudes who are unquestionably the real deal; someone who witnessed the steady evolution of rockabilly and country into rock ‘n roll while growing up in Memphis, then moving to Chicago and cutting his teeth alongside blues royalty like Big Joe Williams and John Lee Hooker. Ben Harper is a multi-instrumental folk/blues/soul musician who came up under the tutelage of another 12 bar guru, Taj Mahal. Following their previous collaboration, Get Up!, which won the Grammy for best blues album in 2014, the two decide to see if they can strike gold twice. No Mercy In This Land is the logical sequel to Get Up! in every way, cruising with the formula that worked so well for them the first time. That means plenty of lonesome delta bluescapes, vintage R&B shuffle, and, of course, virtuosic harmonica playing all over this thing. It can be hard to find modern blues that has any shred of authenticity; Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite have got it in spades. Turn it up loud enough and you’ll hear the dust and dirt in these grooves.
