MUDDY WATERS Muddy “Mississippi” Waters Live (1978/2003)

Muddy Mississippi LiveMuddy “Mississippi” Waters Live (2003)
Expanded Set From 1978… With Johnny Winter

From the blues shelf comes this remastered and expanded 2CD edition of one of Muddy’s last albums, Muddy “Mississippi” Waters Live. Produced by Johnny Winter (who also provides some searing electric slide work on a few tracks), this is the third collaboration of the two blues greats for Blue Sky Records. It was a great time for Waters in the late 70s; riding the waves of resurgence, picking up younger fans and garnering a handful of Grammys for his swan song years with Winter. Personally, I like the way this album was reissued, leaving the original album intact on disc one, and adding over an hour of previously unreleased material for disc two – providing older fans with an unchanged listening experience, while giving the money-changers a way to re-issue it all again later as a complete, unedited concert sometime in the future. For those that care, most of these tracks were recorded in August, 1978, with three tracks captured the year before. Oh… just to have a visual image of the black, black Muddy Waters and the white, white Johnny Winter sharing a joint backstage. There’s more Muddy in the archives; Fathers And Sons, The Complete Plantation Recordings and Hoochie Coochie Man (a great 1964 live recording) and One More Mile – Chess Collectibles, Vol. 1. Muddy “Mississippi” Waters Live is available at Amazon.

      MF is becoming pretty useless for certain types of releases. I’m still trying to figure it all out. Thanks for the note.

    Just a suggestion, google Digital Fingerprinting.

      Yeah… I know files are being scanned and targeted (only when they’re first downloaded, not when they’re uploaded), I’m just trying to figure a way around it. I tried putting zips inside of zips, but that didn’t work. Further… what they’re doing is NOT deleting the files. They’re still available to the original uploader – just disabled for D/L. So, when I’m signed in, they appear functioning (actually, they ARE…. for me only). So I have to sign out to see if something has been nicked. Also, I have no idea if they’re “fingerprinting” the audio or the words. So… any ideas would be useful. Thanks.

    Zippyshare seems to work well for some sites, and it’s fast. Thanks for the extra Muddy & the Stones.

      I might try them, thanks. I hate to abandon MF because their links are durable. But, they seem to be getting serious.
