Born McKinley Morganfield in Rolling Fork, Mississippi, on 4 April 1915 (some sources say 1913), Muddy Waters grew up to be the undisputed Father of post-World War II Chicago blues. He excelled as a recording artist, bandleader, songwriter and showman, and enjoyed a career long enough to inspire several generations of musicians to follow in his footsteps. He was the link between old and new blues, rural and urban, even black and white, and his role in the music’s development was crucial. This handsome double CD set contains all the tracks that won Muddy Waters legendary status. Recorded in the decade between 1946 and 1956, these 50 classics remain as fresh and vital today as when they were cut.
