    So, I was sitting in my room yesterday listening to a vinyl blues compilation record I picked up from the record store a few weeks ago for the first time, and I had heard Muddy Waters before, but never got too much into him. But this time his music really hit me...so I picked up a live CD I had lying around for a couple of years and gave it a listen, and loved the hell out of it. So now, I'm officially a fan. :D

    Although I couldn't find the tracks on YouTube; I love 'Mannish Boy', 'Evans Shuffle (Ebony Boogie)', and a blues jam he did on the live album I have on CD, called 'Last Nite'...hell...I love it all. :pullhair:

    Tell me what you think about this Chicago bluesman.

    I love his performance off the Last Waltz with The Band.



    Enjoy :)

    Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf are the first two blues singers I ever got into and are a big fan of both. I love "Fathers And Sons" and "The Muddy Waters London Sessions" which both featured all star lineups. "I'm Ready" was another good one which Johnny Winter produced and played guitar on. I really liked "Electric Mud" as well though the critics panned it.

    Hard Again is a later album I would highly recommend, again the Johnny Winter input helps this album along but Muddy excells IMO. Infact I think the album title was chosen because Muddy said the music "Made his pee pee hard again." nice one.

    :clap:

    I could have easily placed this post in the Johnny Winter thread, his influence is all over this album! In my opinion this one of the best Blues albums I have ever heard, these two were made to play together!
