The Real Folk Blues/More Real Folk Blues [MCA]

The Real Folk Blues/More Real Folk Blues [MCA]

by Muddy Waters


1 New & Used Starting at $6.24


Collecting two seminal Muddy Waters albums of the 1960s, this essential disc draws from a wide selection of classic blues stretching from 1948 to 1964, all of it prime material from the most important period of Waters’s career. From the minimal duo setting of “Kind Hearted Woman,” with just Muddy and bassist Ernest “Big” Crawford, to “Walking Thru the Park,” on which Waters is accompanied by a full electrified Chicago blues band, we can trace the musical evolution of one of the greatest of Chicago blues masters. Waters, playing stinging slide guitar and singing with a virile authority that few other bluesmen attained, is in magnificent form throughout; as he’s joined by such brilliant players as bassist Willie Dixon, harmonica giant Little Walter, and guitarist Jimmy Rodgers, Waters’s music expands from its traditional southern roots, until it blossoms into the paragon of modern Chicago blues. Add Waters’s Anthology to this set, and you have a comprehensive picture of a great American musician.
