Muddy Waters — Electric Mud ... CD 4.99

The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, it was downplayed as a cheap attempt to sell out Muddy's classic blues sound. These days, it's treasured by many of us as a unique funky session that merged the best of Chicago's funk, soul, and blues worlds – taking Muddy's sound way past earlier records and into uncharted waters. It's similar to some of the work on Chess at the time by Bo Diddley and Etta James – and it includes lots of nice updated groovers like "I'm A Man", "I Just Want To Make Love to You", "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Same Thing", "She's All Right", and "Tom Cat". Arrangements are by Charles Stepney, too! (Later non-gatefold pressing in a white cover. Shrinkwrap is shopworn. Cover has a cutout notch and some stains from seepage.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Two Steps From The Blues
Duke, 1961. Good+
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made!

Like It Is
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Very nice stuff by Junior Parker – recorded by Bobby Robinson, and produced with a style that's a lot smoother than you'd expect.
