During the '40s and '50s, Chicago's Chess Records recorded a legion of blues legends. But none were greater than McKinley Morganfield, professionally known as Muddy Waters. Though born and raised on the Mississippi delta, Waters came to personify the brash, confident blues that blossomed in Chicago and Memphis in the post-war era. Between 1947 and 1972, Waters cut an uninterrupted stream of brilliant sides for Chess, the best of which are included on the three-disc CHESS BOX.
To call these recordings indispensable is merely to state the obvious. Any one of the following would place these records among the most important in blues history--Waters' deft slide guitar playing and intense vocals; stellar instrumental support from the legendary Little Walter; Otis Spann, James Cotton, and Buddy Guy, to name but a few of the blues greats who first worked with Waters; and a repertoire of classics that includes "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Rolling Stone," and "I Just Want to Make Love to You." The length and cost of this set may intimidate some (the single-disc HIS BEST is a less overwhelming alternative), but true blues lovers should consider investing in THE CHESS BOX, the best career overview of this undisputed giant of the blues.
