Biography

In the late 1940s and early '50s, Chicago was the epicenter of the blues explosion; all the roads led there, from Mississippi Delta, the Midwest and the Southeast. It all began in 1948 with the release of a 78-rpm single by a singer-guitarist called Muddy Waters. Aristocrat 1305 bore a pair of traditional Mississippi Delta-styled pieces "I Can't Be Satisfied" and "I Feel ... Read more in Amazon's Muddy Waters Store

Editorial Reviews

This 1960 recording-the greatest live blues album ever-is made even better with this reissue! I've Got My Mojo Working; (I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man , and the rest of this famed set are now joined by the four-song studio session Muddy recorded the previous month, plus new notes and photos!

Customer Reviews

Muddy Waters at Newport 1960 is great old school jazz.
TTazman64
Sound is very good, which is not always a given when dealing with live performances, even today.
J. Grant
It should be required listening if you want to hear good blues!!

Recorded at the 1960 Newport jazz festival, this album is a superior set of live blues. Muddy is backed for the set by James Cotton on harmonica, the great Otis Spann on piano, Pat Hare on rhythm guitar, bassist Andrew Stevenson, and drummer Francis Clay. The performances are straightahead Delta favored Chicago blues highlighted by an explosive take and reprise of Muddy's set closer "I've Got My Mojo Working". From the sounds of the crowd Muddy nearly brought the house down before he wrapped up his set. This is a good live disc of exciting high energy blues by one of the music's masters, recommended.

According to the liner notes from this one, Muddy had a tough time with Blues festivals. First he was too electric and loud. The next year he was too acoustic and quiet. From the sound of this one, he finally got it just right.

This is not a barn-burner. Oh, it has plenty of energy, but if you're looking for the jolt found on his Blue Sky-era recordings, you're going to be a bit disappointed. This is smoother blues. Not mellow, but not as rowdy. Remember, the younger Muddy Waters was trying to find wide-acceptance of his misic. (It is a shame he didn't find that until the last few years of his life)

The song selection is fantastic. "Tiger in your tank" is fun. "Got my mojo working" is a foot-stopmper. But, my favorite is "Goodbye Newport Blues", which was allegedly penned on the stairs to the stage and ad-libbed by the band. But, what a band to have ad-lib!

This one is must for those who want to move beyond blues/rock.

This is the concert that inspired the likes of Eric Burdon, Clapton, Winwood, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page...this is a must for blues and rock n' roll collectors. The sound is live, probably Muddy's best live recording. I would like to find the video/35mm film to this. I also recommend "Hard Again" by Muddy with the help of James Cotton (who is also on this live recording) and Johnny Winter. The man is missed.

Muddy Waters' July, 1960 appearance at the Newport Folk Festival was recorded and issued as one of the first live blues albums, and one of the very best as well. A bit short at only nine songs (plus four studio recordings), but that's just about the only complaint you could possibly lodge against this classic recording.

The sound on the remastered 2001 edition is simply excellent...the original masters have been transferred in high-resolution digital audio, bringing up Andrew Stephenson's bass overall, and moving Muddy's singing several layers forward in the mix.
And the result is superb. The Muddy Waters Band of 1960 included top-notch harmonica player James Cotton, guitarist Auburn "Pat" Hare, drummer Francis Clay, and the great Otis Spann whose superb piano playing graced almost all of Muddy's 1960s recordings (listen to the swing he adds to "I Feel So Good"). And Muddy Waters himself is in his prime, his big, confident voice possessing tremendous power.

Talking about highlights is a meaningless excercise..."Muddy Waters At Newport" features the definitive renditions of the classic "Got My Mojo Working" and the swaggering "I Feel So Good", but literally everything is superb, from the hits ("Hoochie Coochie Man", Big Joe Williams' "Baby Please Don't Go") to the little-known songs ("Soon Forgotten", the then-newly recorded "I Got My Brand On You" and "Tiger In Your Tank"). And the live portion of the album winds down with the slow lament "Goodbye Newport Blues", which is pretty generic and obviously slapped together for the occation, but it actually works quite well (and pianist Otis Spann provides a good lead vocal).

This 1960 recording came at an interesting crossroads in musical history. In the US, we were experiencing a big boom in folk music, which had obvious blues connections. A similar movement was taking place in England with the popularity of skiffle. Many of the older blues musicians of the thirties and forties, who had not performed much for several decades, or who had performed in obscurity, were 'rediscovered' and appeared at this concert. The young men in England who would later become famous as the Rolling Stones, the Animals, the Kinks, the Yardbirds and the Beatles, were just coming of age. They would recognize the greatness of this music, immerse themselves in it, and, ironically, bring it back to the States in a recharged version, which made it more easily accessible to the vast US record-buying public. As they say, "the blues had a baby, and they named it Rock & Roll."

Muddy Waters, aka McKinley Morganfield, is, to many people, myself included, the greatest blues singer who ever lived. This is a good representation of what he could do at the time, what he had already been doing for ten years in Chicago, and what he continued to do for the next twenty years. Nothing fancy, just piano, drums, bass, harp, and a couple guitars, all wired up so you could hear them in the bars, over the sound of the talking, the broken glasses, the bodies in motion. And let's put to rest the notion that Muddy was one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Honestly, he only knew a few riffs, only played a couple chords. But what he knew, and what he communicated.....it's beyond words.

While we're at it let's not forget the contributions of that immortal songwriter, Willie Dixon, who penned most of the material Muddy made famous.
