Tempo: Muddy Waters

Jim Delehant, Hit Parader, July 1966

NOW THAT THE blues bands are on the threshold of "shaking their money maker," it's a curious fact that the original bands who have been around since the 1940's will take a back seat. It can't be denied that the Paul Butterfield Blues Band is the greatest thing since Muddy Waters, but it seems ridiculous that Muddy himself isn't the greatest thing going.
