Description

Feat. John Primer, Gary Clark Jr., Shemekia Copeland, James Cotton, Johnny Winter, Derek Trucks and more... Hard-cover CD book, 48 pages illustrated with black & white and color photography by some of the greatest photographers of Muddy's time and an original essay by Robert Gordon, Grammy Award-winning author of the definitive Muddy Waters biography "Can't Be Satisfied- the Life and Times of Muddy Waters". It could be argued that Muddy Waters has had more influence on the sound of the popular American music that we hear coming out of our radios, computers, smartphones and tablets than any other single American artist of the 20th century. Consider the scope of that influence: Muddy's trailblazing use of electricity as tonal effect; his groups that were the template for modern rock and pop ensembles; his songs that spoke about previously taboo topics along with his sexually charged stage charisma that paved the way for the rebel "bad-boy" rocker. It is clear that Muddy provided the blueprint for rock and pop groups as they exist today. He was a bona fide contemporary artist, breaking more rules and conventions than he followed; he pushed the borders of sound and song, telling his own stories with a voice so original, emotionally explosive and powerful that he would not only put the MAN in "Mannish Boy," but would go on to lead the charge that changed the face of music forever. Muddy Waters 100 is our centennial celebration of Muddy Water's musical legacy, his iconic sound and his immeasurable contribution to and influence on American music. Driven by a deep respect for this master of the blues and for the blues traditions that spawned his talent, Muddy Waters 100 tributes the past, embraces the present and recognizes the bright future of the blues for which Muddy paved the way.
