Muddy Waters: Loud & Clear
Tony Russell, The History of Rock, 1982
When it comes to Chicago blues, Muddy Waters is The Man. "Spell it M! — A, child! — N!" as he growls in Mannish Boy. Cock of his roost since 1947, hes proudly crowed his deep Mississippi blues through every fad and mood of his era, folk boom and flower power, acid rock and apathy. If, now and then, hes made a regal bow to prevailing musical fashion, its almost always been on his own terms.
