Overview

Robert Johnson may have had the mystic, but Muddy Waters had the sound. The source for much of the rock 'n' roll of the past four decades, his music was also the eye of the hurricane that became known as Chicago Blues, a sound that combined songs of sexual prowess, bittersweet lives in the South, and voodoo powers with raw amplification. The body of Muddy's recordings between the late 40s and early '70s is captured on the definitive, three-CD set MUDDY WATERS. The 72 cuts include well-worn originals like "Mannish Boy," "She's Nineteen Years Old," and "Got My Mojo Working" as well as Muddy's electrifying versions of "I Feel So Good," "Elevate Me Mama," and "Close to You." His guitar style is raunchy but never in-your-face while his vocals are like those of a minister just returned from a trip to hell. Muddy's group of deacons included the best sidemen Chicago had to offer -- most of whom would become blues stars on their own -- pianist Otis Spann, guitarist Jimmy Rogers and Buddy Guy, and harp players Little Walter, Junior Wells and James Cotton. MUDDY WATERS is the foundation upon which modern blues was made.

Redman has been putting it down for a while and he's yet to get the type of recognition he deserves. He's one of the greatest MC's ever, with hardcore delivery and dark, witty lyrics. Muddy Waters is the best of all worlds, with the best lyrics from the funk doc and beats that are parallel with his morbid style. A CLASSIC.

This was Redmans best album and it set a high bar for the next 4 yrs. A definite classic and a top 5 hip hop album ever.. Thanks Redman for showing upcoming artist that Classics can be made by rappers who aint commercial..

This is the most overlooked album of the year 1996. Tracks such as Pick It Up, Do What U Feel, Smoke Buddah, and my personal favorite, Rollin', make for an unpolished, rawed out, rugged third album for Mr. Reggie Noble! A maniacal Masterpiece!
