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

The 1978 Grammy-winning LP (Muddy's last) plus 12 unissued tracks! Mannish Boy; She's Nineteen Years Old; Baby Please Don't Go , and the rest of the LP join a CD of unissued gems. And the backing band? How 'bout Johnny Winter, Luther "Guitar Jr." Johnson, Pinetop Perkins...it's a blues all-star extravaganza!

4.0 out of 5 stars ****1/2. Better sound, better mixes November 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The original seven-track Muddy 'Mississippi' Waters Live" album was a nice, but ultimately inessential record.
However, this 2003 deluxe edition (similar in design to the deluxe edition of the Allman Brothers Band's "Live At Fillmore East") restores the truncated mixes of the originally released songs, it adds another disc of previously unreleased material, and both discs have been digitally remastered. The drums and the bass may have been left a little too much in the background at times, but the vocals, the guitars, the harmonica and the piano are superbly crisp and clear, notably better than on the original CD release.

Disc one has been fleshed out a little bit...the original mixes have been scrapped in favour of new and usually better ones, something which is particularly audible on the leadoff track, "Mannish Boy", which is two minutes longer than on the 1979 LP (and the original CD issue) due to the inclusion of a verse sung by Johnny Winter.

Other highlights include the slow groove of "Streamline Woman", and a swaggering nine-minute "Deep Down In Florida", and Muddy's take on Sonny Boy Williamson's "Nine Below Zero" is terrific; less tense and punchy than Sonny Boy's, but solidly swinging on harpist Jerry Portnoy's wonderful riffing and a swaggering backbeat by drummer Willie "Big Eyes" Smith.
The tight and muscular band includes Johnny Winter on several songs, but even with four guitarists the musicians manage not to step on each others toes too much, or engage in meaningless flailing...with the possible exception of Waters himself, actually. I hate to say it, and I don't deny that Muddy used to be a really good slide guitarist before the 1970 traffic accident that almost killed him, but some of these lenghty "solos" are pretty much just noise.

5.0 out of 5 stars great 1st disc, incredible 2nd!!! September 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When this first came out, it was deservedly recognized with grammy nominations. The set featuring Johnny Winters is so good, you hardly notice the distraction Winters represented. "Mannish Boy," "She's 19," and "Deep Down in Florida" are remarkable workouts. Winters has an annoying slide guitar in his own catalogue, but here, trying to squeeze in among Muddy's sidemen, he's kept in check. He did a great job on the production and remastering, and the set has a presence it did not have digitally at first. There is a comment among the reviewers that prefers the vinyl, but I'd say this remaster is better.
However, it's the second disc that makes this essential listening. Stripped of the record label presence, and allowed to do their thing, this is a more accurate reading of just how incendiary Muddy Waters and his band were on any given night. Be it the loose boogie of "Pinetop's Boogie" or the white hot tear down of "Mojo", this set just blazes, smokes and leaves the first disc in the dust. That's true of most of that vinatge of Chicago bluesmen: the whiteboys should have stayed at the bar. They tended to slow things down and dilute the feral power. "Champagne and Reefer" and "Hoochie Coochie Man" fry the audience on both sides. This is a terrific club set and well worth the price all by itself.
Muddy Waters was so importnat to post WW2 music that you ought to seek out any of his recordings. But it was live that set him apart from everyone else. Both of these discs illustrate that categorically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Muddy Loud and Clear March 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As I have become more fully aware of Muddy, and the incredible impact his music had on our generation, it took me awhile to get to this recording. (I think there are at least 19 other Muddy CDs on my shelf) I am so glad I did. The re-issue here is wonderful, and Bob Margolin, who played a big part in this re-issue gives us some great background history in the nicely designed CD booklet. The first CD is top-notch live material, but as other reviewers made aware, the second CD is gold. I happen to like Johnny Winter, and am thankful that he played an integral role in bringing Muddy into a "second-coming" of his career in the late 70's. I believe Johnny truly loved and admired Muddy, and contrary to what others have written, I like Winter's presence on the first CD. However, if you are one who doesn't, he's not on the second disc at all. At any rate, this is a set that I know I will keep coming back to for many years. I highly recommend spending the little bit extra to get this 2 CD version of Muddy Live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second disk is as good as the first December 10, 2003

This one's worth every penny. Had it been the new disk that had been issued originally, then IT would have won a Grammy. Best "deluxe edition" I've ever bought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good live Muddy from Chess June 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Chess records only recorded Howlin' Wolf live a single time, and late in his career at that, and most of the label's other main attractions never got a live album. But Muddy Waters was luckier, and this 1971 album was the third full-length concert recording of his career.

Cut in the summer of 1971 at Mr. Kelly's, a Chicago club on the Near North Side, "Muddy Waters Live (at Mr. Kelly's)" finds Muddy in fine form, working with his excellent early-70s band which included Joe "Pinetop" Perkins (piano), drummer Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, bassist Calvin "Fuzz" Jones, and guitarists Samuel Lawhorn and James "Pee Wee" Madison.
The masterful James Cotton appears under a pseudonym, as he was under contract with another label, blowing the harp on three songs. On the remaining nine songs it is 21-year-old Paul Oscher playing fine, muscular harmonica parts.

The album opens with a predictable but quite enjoyable "Country Boy"-knockoff called "What Is That She Got" and a rendition of Jimmy Reed's "You Don't Have To Go" (which doesn't sound _quite_ right without Reed's drawling vocals). The slow blues "Strange Woman" is a bit monotonous, but then comes a swinging "Blow Wind Blow" with some great playing by Pinetop Perkins and Paul Oscher, a good "Country Boy" (the real one this time), the excellent instrumental "Mudcat", and a gritty "She's Nineteen Years Old". Also, this version of "Stormy Monday Blues" is significantly better than other Muddy Waters-renditions I've heard.

All in all, this album doesn't quite match the power and boldness of Muddy's best live albums, and you should seek out albums like "Muddy Waters At Newport", "Mojo: The Live Collection", "The Lost Tapes", and "Chicago 1979" before this one.
