I swaped this cd for my husband, and he plays it all the time in his "mancave" so I guess thats all that needs to be said.

Let's not get carried away

"Some of the reviews here are waaay too generous, so don't get your hopes up about the quality of this album. One reviewer refers to it as the best blues album of all time: Heck, I can name 10 or 12 other MUDDY WATERS albums that has this beat hands down! Muddy's vocals sound tired, the material is sub-par, and the band isn't particularly good, although Rory Gallagher gets off a few good solos. The organ playing is horrid--and absolutely unnecessary. The album cover art gives a pretty good indication that this wasn't a very serious Muddy Waters blues album. You can steer clear of this one, unless you have all of Muddy's classic stuff and are interested in hearing him on an "off-night.""
Great Session Recording!

"Beginning in the late 50's US Bluesmen were invited to London to be paired up with London musicians for what became known as the London Sessions. Those bluemen included the likes of Big Bill Broonzy, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters and even rock and roller Chuck Berry. On this disc Muddy is paired with Irish great Rory Gallagher, Steve Winwood and Carey Bell to name a few. The result is absolutely fantastic. Those unfamiliar with the work of Rory Gallagher would be well served to listen to the guitar work on "Young Fashioned Ways" or "Who's Gonna Be Your Sweet Man When I'm Gone" which Rory later release on his own album as simply, "I Wonder Who". Not a bad tune on the disc. Hopefully, Chess will remaster this CD and include some of the previously unreleased material from these sessions as they did recently on Muddy's "Fathers and Sons" which features Muddy with Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield. No serious collection can be complete without either of these great releases."
