It's hard to talk about Muddy Waters without resorting to superlatives. While the songs on Real Folk Blues can be described as standard blues--and over the years, many of them became blues standards--Muddy Waters simply did them the best. Maybe it's that there's never a note out of place, yet Muddy makes it sound easy; or maybe it's that baritone voice. Or maybe it's the magical pairing of Muddy the player and Willie Dixon the songwriter, which produced "Mannish Boy", "Walking Blues," "Same Thing", and more. Whatever it is, it's on this album--blues music so real you can taste it. --Genevieve Williams

'The Real Folk Blues'(tracks 1-12) & 'More Real Folk Blues'(tracks 13-24) cover the period 1947-1964 and maintain the high standard of his first album. There are great performances from Muddy and his sidemen such as Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers & Otis Spann.
Although there are now more comprehensive anthologies available of Muddy Waters(1913/15 - 1983) this CD reissue is a superb introduction t0 the 'King of Chicago Blues'.

More acoustic guitar than in his regular performances, but still more personally tinged, closer to his original records in the late 1940s. This is a master at work and these are songs he did that are classics in the blues repertoire because of these recordings.
If you are a serious lover of the blues, you probably have these sides already. If not you want to get them. If you just like good music and love your ears, and can witness the dramatic power, the humor, the strength and the sexiness that Waters conveys with his voice and music, you also need this.
As I said in my review of Muddy's real folk blues, every note Muddy played and sang was real folk blues from Stovall Planatation to the Day he died!
