Bob Margolin has been a blues musician for a long time. My Road reflects the story of his long career and that of his mentor Muddy Waters.For this album, the band lineup is very basic, just the regular touring ensemble of Margolin on guitar, Chuck Cotton on drums, and Ted Walters on the harmonica. Cotton also provides harmony vocals from time to time. The emphasis is on the lyrics and the vocal, with the music more subdued. Margolin wrote half of the 12 songs, and those are the ones that are most autobiographical.
