The original hoochie coochie man like you have never heard him before – lovingly remastered, giving new life to the original masterpieces.

Seldom equalled and never surpassed, Muddy Waters changed the course of popular music. Beautifully remastered to capture Muddy’s intoxicating power, this Rough Guide charts his early career in the Delta and pioneering time in Chicago. Compiled by the author of the ‘Rough Guide to the Blues’ book and well known music journalist Nigel Williamson.

Comes complete with the Bonus CD ‘Muddy Waters: Contemporaries & Influences’. Once Muddy Waters arrived in Chicago in 1943, he soon collected around him a group of stellar musicians, who played with him while he changed the face of blues music. Many of them also cut their own solo material, and among those featured here, Little Walter, James Cotton, Jimmy Rogers, Junior Wells, Walter Horton, Earl Hooker, Jimmy Oden, Buddy Guy and Otis Rush, all passed through Muddy’s band or played on his records. Others were merely influenced by him. But then again, if you were playing the blues in the 1950s, there was scarcely anybody who wasn’t…
