    It may do little to make non-believers go his way, but Get Up! sizzles with intent from the off. [Mar 2013, p.102]

    [Musselwhite's] team-up with Haprer vibrantly showcases his pasionate, fluid style.... [Harper] mostly stays out of the way, perhaps to a fault. [8 Feb 2013, p.75]

    Musselwhite's dialogue with Harper's soulful tenor and punchy guitar is pure Astaire and Rogers.

    There's a palpable sense of comfort between these two, and each listen becomes nothing more than yet another illustration of exactly how strong their musical connection is.

    Their chemistry is obvious. [Feb 2013, p.74]

    It benefits substantially from the synergy that the potent presence of Charlie Musselwhite helps to create. [Feb 2013, p.90]

    One of the thrills of Get Up! is hearing Harper rock on hard blues, refreshing from a powerful singer-guitarist whose work can be overly hushed. This kind of music is meat for Musselwhite.

    The album is a beguiling mix of acoustic and electric blues, with harmonica legend Musselwhite weaving in and out like a roadhouse virtuoso.

    Ultimately, Get Up! earns its titular exclamation point as a successful combination of two talented veterans feeding off each other's dusky, creative spirit.
