    so great - so, so great... - I didn't know that I was lost for so long - until I found my way back home with his music - sure I've known that I was lost, for longer then 10 years or what - anyway, It was too long to... bla, bla, bla = I never said it - but I hadn't much hope anymore that it is possible to get it back... I thought that it is gone - not existing anymore - that"me"/-or what felt a bit like "home"...Yep - shit happens!!! ·buuuuut, & I don't know why or how = I just know that I listened & it worked a bit like a washing machine, not fast - 48h or what. - but then I could feel something true. I thought It's just an accident - maybe a psychotic disorder or what... but not just for seconds - for a few days... & I can catch it back sometimes for days / weeks & sometimes just for seconds,- but It's enough. He's heaven-sent or so... I'm sure.

    I just saw him open for B.B. King last night in Minneapolis. I love B.B., but still, I could have listened to this guy all night long. This is the best new-to-me music I've encountered in years. What an awesome, unforgettable musician!

    Dude was pure class when I saw him. Seemed like he was sick as a dog, though.

    Sweet blessed moonshine and big sticky greens Charley is the blessed reincarnation of an ole Mississippi delta bluesman. Once again, music like this makes me proud to be a Minnesotan.
