CD Reviews

Three of the best.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When Johnny Winter hooked up with Muddy in the late 70's he coaxed him into playing some of the finest music of his illustrious career. The first of the three recordings, Hard Again, got it's title from Muddy exclaiming "..this sounds so good it makes my little peepus hard again." All of this music presents a genius of the blues in his 60's playing with the power of a man half his age. It's timeless, it's brilliant and the band is more than up to the task. This collection should be in any self respecting blues fan's collection. Pick up the equally(if not more so) terrific live album titled, Muddy "Mississipi" Waters Live (also on Blue Sky) add the Muddy Waters Chess Box Set and you are all set. Muddy was it...Simon"
Excellent! All 3 of Muddy's Johnny Winter Era CDs

"I was wondering when somebody was going to repackage these three great Muddy Waters albums. The combination of Johnny Winter and Muddy Waters produced what will inevitably come to be considered as some of the best recordings of some of the old Muddy classics, as well as some very fresh new material.My favorite blues harminica song of all time is "Crosseyed Cat." Johnny Winter's production of "I'm Ready" is outstanding, as is his treatment of "Mannish Boy." No one can holler "Yeah!!!" better than Johnny Winter in response to the "Main Man" crooning "I'm a maaaaaan"I can't say enough about these recordings so I'm not going to waste words. Buy this set and listen for yourself.This is a must have!"
A great collaboration

"Muddy Waters, tried and true, playing a variety of venues -- winding down a long career, with lots of miles under his belt . Johnny Winters- a blues aficionado who knows his way around the rock scene and a recording studio. What happens? These two experienced musicians pull together and put out 3 exceptional releases. Cataloging the early bread and butter numbers Muddy has established over his long and esteemed career. Plus a few more, lots of live shots in the studio, minimal overdub (if any) and BAM! Great renditions of timeless masterpieces superb Bluesmanship all captured with solid studio engineering. If you like the blues, you owe it to yourself to have this box set in your collection!"
