MUDDY WATERS "Electric Mud" - 1968

To me, MUDDY WATERS is the most important blues figure.
It would be ado to get historical here knowing that some guys would do it far better than me, so let's focus on the music.

"Electric Mud" is his '68 psychedelic release and encloses some Muddy's classics : "I Just Want To Make Love To You" (get it on the player), "Hoochie Cootchie Man" - both are Willie Dixon's songs) and "Mannish Boy". Don't forget to mention the ROLLING STONES cover "Let's Spend The Night Together" (should I remind everybody that the STONES named themselves after a MUDDY WATERS' song?).
Know that this album came out with an 8-page booklet and the gatefold inner photo is basically gorgeous.

MUDDY WATERS was one of the electric blues pioneers, and with JIMI HENDRIX growing bigger and bigger at the time, this album sets MUDDY as the legitimate father of all the emerging Psych/Heavy Rock/Blues scene.

We could speak for hours about the great man, so let's the music talk instead, and play "I Just Want To Make Love To You".
