"Maisie," is gorgeous. Yes, a
couple members of Wings are
involved in one tune. - JH

BEN HARPER AND CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE

No Mercy In This Land
A most welcome encore to
the Grammy-winning collaboration featuring Harper's slide and
Musselwhite's harmonica, Get
Up. But on tour, Musselwhite
sang one-fourth of the songs,
garnering huge response. So
it's disappointing that he sings
only part of the title cut. Is
Musselwhite as good a vocalist
as Harper? No. Can Harper
plumb the depths of emotion
Musselwhite can? No way. - DF

GUS G

Fearless
On a trajectory that finds
Gus striking out beyond the
band Firewind and Ozzy, this is
a powerful, tight, and intense
album. Imaginative themes
and melodies are the glue that
holds together 10 well-crafted
tunes. Vocalist/bassist Dennis
Ward and drummer Will Hunt
hit with groove and authority.
Get to know Gus G. He's a
ripping melodic monster. - OJ

SON VOLT

The Search Deluxe Reissue
Okemah and the Melody
of Riot Deluxe Reissue
Two now-classic albums
are back from Son Volt's
mid-career period, flushed out
with a selection of concert
shots and live radio appearances as well as the band's
vinyl-only 2007 album On
Chant and Strum. - MD

Blue Mesa
New Orleans' own WinslowKing is back with 10 finely
crafted "power roots" songs
with catchy melodies and
fine guitar work from the
composer as well as stellar
Italian slide guitarist Roberto
Luti (who should cut a solo
album someday soon). With
Hammond organ and full horn
section, the band soars on a set
of jazz and blues tunes. - MD

Front And Center
Guitarist Skip Cherryholmes
and banjo player Steve Dilling
are two of the bluegrass
veterans teamed here with
talented, relative newcomers. Superior musicianship
with strong ensemble
vocals and recognition of
bluegrass as living music
that can embrace a cover
of Gordon Lightfoot's "Song
For A Winter's Night" make
them more than just another
gaggle of slick pickers. - RA

JOHN MELLENCAMP

Plain Spoken: From the
Chicago Theatre
CD and DVD of a stellar
2016 show blending Mellencamp's latest songs
with classic hits, including
those glorious guitar hooks
from stalwarts Andy York
and Mike Wanchic. Part
of the riches here are a
lengthy personal essay in
the liner booklet. - MD

VINNY RANIOLO

Air Guitar Songs of Flight
Raniolo is best known as
the third guitarist in a trio with
Frank Vignola and Tommy Emmanuel. He steps out here for
a wonderful swinging session
with 15 standards about flying.
It's just him and bassist Elias
Bailey, and it swings hard. - JH

REUNION4

LUKE WINSLOW-KING

SIDELINE

Reunion4
Forty years ago, jazz/
studio guitar veterans Mitch
Holder and Eddie Arkin, bassist
Abraham Laboriel, Sr., and
drummer Paul Leim garnered
a loyal following at Donte's
in Hollywood. Unfortunately,
they dissolved in '82 with no
record to show - until these
10 download-only originals.
The tunes are hip, the playing
impeccable - as you'd expect
from guys whose credits
encompass Michael Jackson,
Ella Fitzgerald, Barry Manilow,
Dolly Parton, and more. - DF

JOHNNY MARR
THE ARCTIC MONKEYS

Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino
After four years off, the
upstarts are back. Frontman
Alex Turner traded guitar for
piano, opening new vistas. But
the album's still replete with
swirling orchestral guitar and
the Sabbath-y grind of AM, resulting in a more experimental,
Beatles-esque outing. - MD

Call the Comet
Ex-Smith Marr returns with
more classic Brit power-pop
that'll make you think the
'80s have returned. That's
a good thing, as the pounding drums, driving bass, and
jangly guitar are a fashion
statement that should never
go out of style. - MD

DIRTY SIDEWALKS

LAURENCE JUBER

Standard Time
Recorded in 1979 and
first released in '82 when
he was in Wings, Juber's
re-release sounds dated
in spots, with nods to the
disco craze at the time. But,
his playing almost always
rises above the fray. His take
on several jazz classics is
wonderful while his original,

VINTAGE GUITAR

Bring Down The House Lights
Erik and Evan Foster
are the multi-instrumental
brothers at the heart of this
feisty, psychedelic-pop outfit
with antecedents like the
Jesus and Mary Chain and
grandfathered by the Velvet
Underground. Drop the virtual
needle on melodic, emotionally vivid, guitar-soaked
originals like "Heard You
Wanna Kill Me" and you'll
feel like everything is going
to be alright after all. - RA
