Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago and Mississippi Delta blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.
With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began working in the late 1970s with one of his biggest fans Johnny Winter, cutting his final four albums for Blue Sky Records, earning both the artist and producer both Grammy Awards for several of them including the live masterpiece Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live. Recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival, Muddy drove the crowd into a frenzy with his famous guitar licks and his Delta growl, truly a thrilling presence on the stage.
Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary late great Johnny Winter on guitar, James Cotton on harp and the masterful Pinetop Perkins on piano, Muddy 'Mississippi" Waters Live would go on to become one of the most revered live albums in modern day Chicago blues history.
Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits "Mannish Boy," Muddy continues to rock the crowd through a treasure trove of 6 more blues champions which made this one of the most important live recordings of all time. The album features classic gems like his classics "She's Nineteen Years Old," "Baby Please Don't Go," and "Nine Below Zero." Noted for introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live is just another example of how important this late blues master's music was and still is to millions of fans across the globe.
Muddy "Mississippi" Waters is mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso for the first time on audiophile vinyl. The album is enhanced with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as rare inner sleeve live photos, which now are a permanent part of the inside gatefold art, which show the man who helped fuse blues and rock music for millions of music lovers across the globe.
