By the end of the Fifties Muddy Waters had become famous enough to release a record with his own name on the cover But that it was to be a Best of album was certainly a surprise because the ink had hardly dried on his recording contract with Chess It was as though the producers had known that with such titles as Hoochie Coochie Man, Honey Bee and I Want You To Love Me. Muddy had come up with blues music which would provide him and numerous cover bands with material for years to come In those days Waters blues did not bow to any particular fashion of the times Dry and raw he tells his tales to the crystalclear metallic sound of the electric guitar A rhythm group builds the foundation the melodic counterpart to the vocals is provided by the harp with cuttingly sharp intrusions or whimpering background Nothing more is needed to experience a truly original blues feeling and one can be both sad and happy that such authentic blues music is available only on record.
