CD Reviews

This is one of Muddy's finest live recording.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording displayed how tight his music was. It also shows what a professonal Muddy was, in that the most important aspect of Muddy and his band members were the music and how it was received by their audience. In such a venue as Newport in 1960 and perform the way they did in a racially mixed audience, primarily white, is a credit to the professionalism of Muddy Waters. This I believe was the event which brought him to the forefront of not only the blues but to all of music."
Do you want me to sing some more?

"Why don't you already own this CD? ;D If you are reading these humble comments, I am assuming you have some small interest in the Mississippi Delta Blues or the Chicago Blues. Muddy Waters (1915-83) was a master of both. It is a fitting turn of history that he was born in Rolling Fork, Mississippi and died in Chicago, Illinois. If you have not heard of Muddy Waters (born: McKinley Morganfield), the notes by Bob Schnieders are a fine introduction, "It was his appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1960, however, that first exposed Muddy and his music to white America." Not only was this an historic occassion for Mr Waters, in the original notes, Jack Tracy writes that it was an important date for the Newport Festival, as well, "Newport Festival, 1960, will go down as the year of the great riot." It was the last Jazz Festival held there. The vocal phrasing from Mr Waters and the signature smooth as silk guitar playing are at their best on this recording. The concert betrays a palpable air of tension which he masterfully rides so well that when he asks, "Do you want me to sing some more?" after just completing a rousing version of "Got My Mojo Workin'", "Or, do you want me to sing something else?" The crowd screams and squeals for more of the same. The band supporting is in top form consisting of Otis Spann (p) James Cotton (h) Pat Hare (g) Andrew Stevenson (b) and Francis Clay (d). There really is no reason for you not to own this CD -- the price is certainly right."
