Product Description

Product Description

The son of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters, Mud Morganfield and Fabulous Thunderbird frontman Kim Wilson come together for this tribute release. "For Pops (A tribute To Muddy Waters) represents some of Mud's favorite songs from his father including the iconic "I Just Want To Make Love To You" plus "Blow Wind Blow" and "Just To Be With You". When you hear Mud belt out his version of the classic "My Dog Can't Bark" it's clear that the apple truly doesn't fall far from the tree. Kim Wilson lives up to his reputation as the finest purveyor of the "Little Walter" harmonica style by laying down some of his best work to date. Backing them is the crack team of Billy Flynn and Rusty Zinn (guitars), Barrelhouse Chuck (Piano), Steve Gomes (bass) and Robb Stupka (drums). "For Pops" only scratches the surface of the impressive catalog left by the master bluesman, but this collection is a must for Blues fans everywhere. We're certain 'Pops' is proud of his boy. Packaged in Digipak format.

For some reason I was a bit dubious about this record featuring Muddy Waters' son Mud Morganfield backed by harmonica ace Kim Wilson and assorted blues session men recorded in a studio in Annapolis, Maryland (!?!) I needn't have worried Mud's vocals sound very much like his dad's (without attempting an impersonation), you won't hear better blues harmonica this year (or any other year) than Kim's, the band are first class and although the studio doesn't sound like Chess's 2120 South Michigan Avenue this is still a fine sounding record.

For me the Muddy Waters band was the high point of Chicago blues and it was amazing that although the band's personnel changed many times over the years the standard of the music always remained very high, with the emphasis on wonderful ensemble playing. That same focus on ensemble playing is heard here, with Mud and Kim slightly to the fore, but this isn't a a recreation of those classic Waters' Chess sides rather a tribute in the same vain. However, they haven't chosen the more well-known Muddy Waters songs like "Hoochie coochie man" etc but have gone for less-covered songs such as "My Dog Can't Bark" and "She's Got It".

The band of Billy Flynn and Rusty Zinn on guitars, Barrelhouse Chuck on piano, bassist Steve Gomes and Robb Stupka on drums are completely in the Chicago groove and play like a band that have been together for years rather than session men, with that classic sound of the guitars, piano and harp weaving in and around each other. I find it impossible to pick a favourite track - I love all these songs, both the original versions and these modern interpretations - although I would flag up Kim's chromatic harmonica playing on "I Just Want To Make Love To You" and the great tough version of "Just to be with you" which also reminded me of the Paul Butterfield version. Mud has done his old man proud with this record and everyone involved should be very pleased with this well-judged record.

This is the very best tribute to Muddy Waters that you can get. Mud Morganfield, being one of Muddy waters' sons, can emulate his dads style with vocal cords handed directly down from the great man himself. He is joined on this album by Kim Wilson, ex of 'The Fabulous Thunderbirds' and the state penitentiary ( for a contravention of Uncle Sams many laws some years back ). Kim is attached to the harmonica, being one of the best blues harp players alive today. I cannot recommend this album highly enough, and Johnny Winters is nowhere to be heard to muck things up on guitar or vocals as he did on some Muddy Waters albums ( or am I the only one to have this opinion of the skinny shouters doubtful abilities ). Anyway this is a good album with top notch musicianship and is a treat for any Muddy Waters fan.

I saw Mud Morganfield live recently and he is simply amazing as a singer ,performer and heir to the Morganfield blues legacy. Mud is well and truly the real deal, son of the great Muddy Waters, and this simply wonderful album was my album of the year for 2014, looking again at some of his father's songs, some also not so well known. These are not a copy but a great artist taking these great songs, getting harmonica legend Kim Wilson on board, adding an absolutely cracking band, and guess what you come up with an album as good as it gets.Not a duff track here, but solid pulsating Chicago blues played and sung in the great traditions of the music, superbly produced and played. Music to move those feet too, songs that are the true heart of the blues by one of the modern era's greatest exponents. You may know the songs, or at least some of them , but don't miss out this isn't a covers album but a son doing homage to his father, as the title says 'To Pops', Muddy would have been thrilled with this that's for sure. Live Mud is awesome, and that transfers to this fantastic album through each and every track. Utterly unmissable album to enjoy again and again !

Blues at its very best. The perfect combination, Mud, on vocal, superb, Kim, on Harmonica, fabulous ( Thunderbirds). Could have been recorded in Chicago, in the 50's, it's that good. The best blues album for years, Muddy, would be very proud.

Now that they have got together to record this album, let us just hope that there will be more albums in the future.

I could write more about how great this album is, but I won't, just buy it and enjoy the blues as it is, the blues, pure blues.

Thanks Mud, thanks Kim

This is the first review I've submitted anywhere ever and I'd just like to say what a great album. If you like Muddy waters, Chicago blues, little Walter this is a real treat. Muddy's son sounds like his dad but it's not an impersonation Kim Wilson feels like little Walter but it's not an impersonation. It's a more polished sound than Muddy Waters's band but it keeps the essence of his music. Buy this album you'll love it.
