Description by OLDIES.com:
Muddy Waters was the father of the "Chicago Blues Sound," but his achievement was more than an electrical amplification of the blues. Waters extended the solo player's feeling and emotion to an ensemble attack, creating a distinctly American sound that dominated popular culture in the latter half of the twentieth century. These are rare electric performances recorded for German television from 1968-1978 by the most recognized name in the blues world.
Twelve songs including "Got My Mojo Working," "Baby Please Don't Go" and "They Call Me Muddy Waters."
Muddy Waters was born in Mississippi, where he grew up singing. Upon his move to Chicago in his mid-30s, Waters picked up his first electric guitar and began to un-self-consciously revolutionize popular music of the twentieth century. Combining his unmistakeable Delta roots with the gritty urbanity of Chicago, Waters pioneered a new form of the Blues. This video captures him in all-electric settings from Musikladen, History of Soul, and Rockpalast.
