Attempting to capture the complexity and diversity of this artist in ONE box set is doomed to be both troublesome and very incomplete.
IT SIMPLY CANNOT BE DONE.
Muddy Waters displays his command of the Blues in songs such as "I Can't Be Satisfied" and "Long Distance Call". Rarities like "Mean Red Spider" are pleasing to find.
Overall, the collection is a good start for someone who just wants to hear his laments and joys in one fell swoop. Die-hard fans should avoid this and stick to the released LP/CD.
