MUDDY WATERS | I'M READY (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago and Mississippi Delta blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide. With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native was soon being discovered by a whole new legion of rock and roll fans thanks to his songs being recorded by folks like The Rolling Stones and Johnny Winter. As the stars aligned, Johnny Winter would go on to produce and play on his mentor's masterpiece I'm Ready. Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary Jimmy Rogers on guitar, Walter Horton on harmonica, and the masterful Pine Top Perkins on piano, Muddy Waters' I'm Ready would go on to become one of the his most revered albums earning him a Grammy Award in 1978. Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits I'm Ready, Muddy continues to rock the house through a treasure trove of 8 more blues champions which made this one of the most important recordings of all time. The album features classic gems like his classics Rock Me, Screamin' and Cryin', and I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary bluesman Muddy Waters.
