Muddy Waters - Folk Singer

Regular price $21.00

Muddy Waters' legendary 1964 Chess release Folk Singer is hands-down the most deliberated 'true audiophile' blues recording in existence. With outstanding support from Buddy Guy on second guitar, Otis Spann on piano, Willie Dixon at the upright bass, and contributions from drummer Clifton James, its reputation is not surprising, and the fact that Folk Singer stands as Waters' only acoustic album just adds to its significance in the blues canon.

Ranked #280 by Rolling Stone on its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Folk Singer is not just a great blues album but an audiophile standard, arguably the only "classic" blues record to achieve such a prestigious standing. Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 200g LP, with its grooves widened for 45RPM, this Chicago blues affair has never been better in any incarnation. Whether or not you already own this in a previous edition, consider Analogue Productions' new reissue an absolute must.
