Both I'm Ready and last year's similar Hard Again seem to have rejuvenated Waters, but rejuvenation may not be the issue. Waters seems never to have lost his incredible sense of the blues, either as a guitarist or as a vocalist, and all that was necessary was to place him in the proper context with the right supporting players. After all, this music is Muddy Waters' game-if he didn't invent it, he certainly made a contribution to it that only one or two other bluesmen can claim. In the end, I'm Ready is most impressive because of Waters' pure passion: he sounds unleashed, not rejuvenated.

"I'm sitting here with a copy of this CD. Same title, same cover. Yet it's not a live album, and the track list is completely different.There is a live album out there titled "I'm Ready", released by Chess Records in 1978, but it's not the one pictured here. The cover shown above is Waters' Johnny Winter-produced 1978 album for CBS records, which is also called "I'm Ready". Confusing, eh?
Well, if you're gonna order this album because you want a live recording, you had better make sure you get the right one.
(Not much of a review here, I know, but I though someone ought to point out that there are two Muddy Waters-albums called "I'm Ready", and the one pictured here doesn't match the track list shown below.)"
