Synopsis

Amazon.com
Muddy Waters started out playing acoustic blues in the Delta, and it shows on this return to his roots, designed to appeal to the mid-1960s surge of interest in folk music. The back of the CD includes a photo of Waters with bassist and songwriter Willie Dixon, as well as a very young Buddy Guy, gathered around a single microphone. This particular CD reissue includes five bonus tracks, among which are "The Same Thing" and "Short Dress Woman," which take advantage of the longer CD running time. All of the other reasons to hear this one remain--Waters's strong, confident voice, the relaxed smoothness of the material, and the surprisingly clean recording, made even cleaner by the digital remastering. --Genevieve Williams

My Home Is In Manhattan
Ben Rosengart | Berkeley, CA | 04/28/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... and had my parents' vinyl copy of this magnificent album sandwiched in the shelves, among many other discs, good, bad and indifferent.

This was one of the good ones.

I imagine this album tells me a little bit about what a late-night back-porch session with Muddy Waters was like. Dixon, James and Guy supply that rarest of commodities, silence. It's like good Italian food: only the finest ingredients, minimally processed and dished up hot. It could be subtitled "The Triumph of Taste Over Virtuosity"."
