Down Beat - 4/96, p.55
4 Stars - Very Good - "After a remarkable run of almost 30 years, the blues titan bid goodbye to Chess Records in 1975 with this strong recording made in the New York State artists community with help from local luminaries..."

Part a follow-up to Muddy Waters' LONDON SESSIONS album (where he was fronting a band of British rock stars heavily influenced by him), part the result of Band drummer/singer Levon Helm and producer Henry Glover's desire to work with Waters, the 1975 WOODSTOCK ALBUM catches Waters in fine form. Waters sounds less fierce and menacing than on many of his albums, though no less forceful. In fact, Waters sounds relaxed (but NOT mellow!) and jovial, befitting the easygoing, R&B-styled program. The band, featuring the piano and vocals of Pinetop Perkins and the razor-sharp harmonica of Paul Butterfield, is tight, focused, and joyful. Waters' presence clearly inspires everyone to play at the top of their game. Everyone--Waters included--sounds as if the recording session was both a special occasion and a vacation from the dark-of-the-night-style of blues. As a bonus, there's a previously unreleased song, "Fox Squirrel." This is a welcome reissue of Waters' '70s work.
