This is a 2 cd set of original best recordings by Muddy Waters, spanning 25 years from 1947 to 1972, and is an excellent example of why collections should be in chronological order of recording, which this set virtually is. You can hear how MW's recordings have developed over the years - for example most of his early recordings feature only guitar and bass, but as years go by harmonica, drums, piano, and sometimes even another guitar are added. Going by the recording dates shown in the track listing, only 2 tracks are not in order, and then only by months. (Track 4 on disc 2 should appear 2 tracks earlier, and track 5 on disc 2 should appear 3 tracks later.)
The track listing in the excellent 16 page booklet also names the musicians: this reads like a "Who's Who" and includes Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Rogers, Otis Spann, and Little Walter!
Muddy Waters himself, under his real name McKinley Morganfield, wrote 31 of the 50 songs on this cd set.
These are of course all Chess recordings, and it was Muddy Waters who, in 1955, helped Chuck Berry join Chess.

As my fellow reviewer makes clear, this is a bargain-priced overview of Muddy's development at Chess records. Given the huge amount of tracks (c 50) in this anthology, it's easy to track the development in style and technique across even lesser known numbers, and changing band compositions. This is strong, driving blues with an insistent and hypnotic rhythm; not for consumption all at the one time perhaps, but as a great blues resource to be dipped into at leisure, all at a ridiculously inexpensive price. An essential blues purchase.

I wanted an intro to the music of Muddy Waters (with which I wasn't very familiar).

What can I say? Just a fantastic compilation in every way.

There's the big-name classics of course (I.e Mannish Boy - who said Rap invented swag and self-aggrandisement?) but the real pleasure has been discovering Waters' many lesser-known (to me) classics.

Whether in the car, at home or on my iPhone, I just can't stop listening. Early favourite is Good Morning Little schoolgirl.

Fantastic album. Hugely recommended.

Has all the best known songs by Muddy Waters. A very good collection although some of the tracks are very similar to each other. But I bought it for about 8 or 9 tracks.

Bought this as part of my "expanding my music collection backwards in time" project. Fantastic. From basic blues up through the 50's Rythm & Blues band music. Worth every penny.

What more can you say about this man and his music, Brilliant. If you like blues and don't have any Muddy Waters then this is the Album to go for. Starts from is early days (1940's ) up to the 70's. All of his classics are on this two disc album.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
