This album contains a dozen of Muddy Waters’ most successful recording efforts, circa 1957! There’s “Hoochie Coochie Man,” rich in reference to voodoo charms, plus faster mover “I Just Want To Make Love To You!” And in “Louisiana Blues,” “Rollin’ Stone,” and “I Can’t Be Satisfied,” Muddy’s guitar is especially strong. Also included is “Honey Bee,” where call-and-response is eloquently in evidence: his guitar responding to his vocal “call.” The dolorous “Standing Around Crying” and “Still A Fool” are present, as is the oft-covered jump blues “I’m Ready” bonafide blues hit records, from the original Chess masters, and pressed on crisp RTI clear vinyl...- from Sundazed!
