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.

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.

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 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.

~ Excellent performances by Muddy and his band consisting of James Cotton (harmonica), Otis Spann (piano), Pat Hare (guitar), Andrew Stephenson (bass), Francey Clay (drums), and of course Muddy on vocals and guitar. Otis Spann does the vocals on "Goodbye Newport Blues", which prominently features his piano playing.
~ In addition to the tracks recorded live at Newport on 3 July 1960, there are four excellent studio tracks recorded in June 1960 by the same band. Collectively this is Muddy and his men in top form.
~ The recorded sound for the live performances is good but not great, as evidenced by the superior sound of the four studio-recorded bonus tracks. That plus the short time of the CD resulted in my reduction from five to four and a half stars.
~ Recommended as a good starting place to hear the music that influenced so many young British blues-rockers.

This is one of blue's seminal albums -- a must-have for any blues fan. Simply put, it defined the Chicago style. Muddy's vocals are sensational -- he's in top form here -- and the band steams along like a locomotive. Don't expect high-quality sound, though. This 41-year old gem was recorded live and the sound gets pretty thin at times. No matter. It's the historic performance that you get.

Muddy Waters is, and probably always will be, the very epitome of the blues to me. Any blues fan knows that the blues is best when performed live. Newport 1960 is probably Muddy Waters' best live recording. It comes from the era when he was at his creative peak. This CD is a must-own for blues fans. Muddy goes through such classics as Hoochie Coochie Man, Baby Please Don't Go and Got My Mojo Working as well as newer (then) material such as I Got My Brand On You and Tiger In Your Tank (the studio versions of which are also included on this remastered version). If you like Muddy Waters or blues, be sure to pick up this CD.
