'The Anthology' truly captures the essence and amplifies the breadth of Muddy Waters' blues legacy. The excellent - but sensitive -reworking of what would now be viewed as primitive recordings makes this artist come alive again! It is hugely pleasing to identify phrasing and 'licks' that have appeared in the guitar works of his latterday devotees in the R&B genre. Sadly, few examples of his work are available widely and 'The Anthology' is the 'must have' record of Muddy's influential benchmark styles of vocal and instrumental virtuosity.

This is truly a must-have for anyone interested in Muddy or the blues and why it took off in the way that it did. These awesome recordings give a great insight into what blues are and even seem strangley familiar after the years of listening to Clapton and the Rolling Stones, themselves having been influenced so strongly by Muddy. This is where it all really took off, with Muddy's slide playing ringing out so clearly above his emotion filled, thoughtful lyrics. Must-have!

This album gives a broad review of Muddy's music across the years, including all the greatest songs. You will realise why so many people have used his music and built on his style to such great effect once you have heard this collection. The blurb that comes with it gives his story and explains why some of his earliest recordings with Chess were so bare, and how he would leave the recording session to go and play as he wanted. Treat yourself - you won't regret it.

que se puede escribir mas del maestro, esa languida guitarra susurrandote al oido con la perfecta voz como acompañamiento, las raices del blues simplemente te atrapan para arroparte y no soltarte hasta quedar saciado. los dos discos son buenos de principio a fin.
