Music that will always stand the test of time. Provided a launch pad for many more contemporary artists.
These are the original Chess Masters and will be a treasured addition to my collection.

Muddy Waters is essential to any blues collection. If you are new to blues, he would be a great artist to start off with; if you've been around blues for a while, keep checking him out - he's one of the best, bridging the divide between the old acoustic country blues and electric blues.

This collection contains a lot of Muddy's best known numbers and for £2.99 for twenty tracks you just can't go wrong. If this music is new to you, once you've listened to it a few times, have a look round for some more of his recordings; there's more where this came from!

This collection is absolutely essential for any lover of electric blues. On one album it presents a complete framework of what became British 60s blues in its original form. The numbers comprise a large proportion of the set lists of bands like The Stones, Pretty things, Yardbirds, Mayall etc. from that time. Muddy may have enjoyed different productions of some of his numbers later in his career e.g. the Johnny Winter produced "Hard Again" album, which is a real gem, but if you love Muddy, or remember Eel Pie Island in 63, you must have this.

Arrived on time and well packaged, what more can I say than hours of wonderful music by a talented musician.

Another must for the collector. Here is Muddy at his original best, before becoming more of a polished blues man. Not that that is wrong or he was less of a great artist later, but this was where it all began.

Muddy entertains and grips my soul. I was introduced to his music whilst watching a documentary on BBC Four and also seeing the film "Chess". Also, on many film productions, the odd track will be played. He is raw and gritty, that's what jazz is about, inspiring music which has gained many famous artist to be where they are today, one particular group is the Rolling Stones who was influenced and inspired. Furthermore, his music gained the reputation for the Stones to create hits of the 60's. The name (Rolling Stones) comes from one of Muddy's tracks. The blues he sings is gritty, smokey, seductive and clearly unforgettable. I am so glad that I have been educated to learn about this great artist. Please enter the world of Muddy Waters cause its a world of Jazz at its best.....

All the great Muddy classics are here - many of which will be familiar from British blues band covers. The originals are better!

This collection of songs is a real must for anyone who's interested in learning more about the origins of popular music. When listening to these tacks you can't help but feel that this is where it all started. The Beatles, the Stones, Clapton - they'd all be nowhere if it wasn't for the likes of Muddy.
Every track is a gem. There really isn't a weakness on this record. You're taken on a journey from the softer, more primitive recordings from Muddy's career through to the much heavier, meatier tunes like 'Hoochie Coochie Man'. Songs like this just ooze this aura of coolness that you just can't find in today's music. Muddy is a much neglected artist. Get this record now.
