Get Up! The new album by blues legends Charlie Musselwhite and Ben Harper, is already being called a modern blues classic, and it will not disappoint. After a chance meeting in 1996 and a 1997 session with John Lee Hooker, Ben and Charlie developed a strong friendship and have been talking about this venture for over a decade. This team is the perfect clash of two of the best blues musicians around, and in the lead single off the album Don't Look Twice - a story of moving on with your life after heartbreak - you really hear how raw and live this album is, making it a more old school approach than most artists are tackling right now. To get the inside look on how the album was created, check out I'm In I'm Out And I'm Gone: The Making of Get Up!, the Danny Clinch-directed documentary that's included in album's deluxe version.
