iTunes Editors’ Notes

In 1968, eager to appeal to psychedelic rock fans, Chess Records urged Muddy Waters to expand his audience by making a heavy rock record. Backed by members of the Chicago soul-rock band Rotary Connection, Muddy turned out an album full of crunching, distortion-soaked riffs and big, booming beats. Not only did it achieve its aim in boosting Muddy's profile, it proved influential to a new generation of musicians. Most of the tracks are hard-rocking revamps of classics from his existing repertoire ("Mannish Boy," "The Same Thing," etc.) but he also amps up The Rolling Stones' "Let's Spend the Night Together."

Customer Reviews

Jaded elitists

This is a GREAT album, and well worth the strange price ($7.92?) "She's Alright" is a fantastic song by Muddy, and this album is a great introduction to a legend. Just very different from his other stuff, and that doesn't have to be bad...

Electric Heaven

I don't care what any of the reviews say about this album. This is one of the greatet albums of all time. Just because it is isn't contemporary blues doesn' mean that it won't blow you're freakin mind. Open up your'e ears all of you critics and give this S*** a chance. Word.

Badass Jams to the mother Land!!!!!

I couldn't believe my ears when i heard some cuts from this period. i didn't know it existed or where it came from until i researched it. it is the KING of all JAMS - funk, blues, electric fuzz and badass hypnotic low-end. thank gawd for this record. it could be made today in 2008 and still be current, slick and worthy of all Buzz. i love this record. it's a fine acheivement in his repetoire of record making. he is the KING in any format. Muddy always comes packing - don't you forget. this record is evilly good.

Muddy Waters was the single most important artist to emerge in post-war American blues. A peerless singer, a gifted songwriter, an able guitarist, and leader of one of the strongest bands in the genre (which became a proving ground for a number of musicians who would become legends in their own right), Waters absorbed the influences of rural blues from the Deep South and moved them uptown, injecting his music with a fierce, electric energy and helping pioneer the Chicago Blues style that would come...
