From his deep toned voice that makes you not only believe every lyric but feel them too. I highly recommend any of his Chess studio work but you'll also want to check out his live Newport gig for proof that yes it really was that good. If you can find a copy of this grab it. Actually if you can find any of the Chess Box sets I recommend picking them up.
No blues collecton could be complete without Muddy Waters. The Chess set contains 72 songs on 3 CDs plus a 30 page booklet giving biographical account of Muddy Waters and his music.
He started out as a fieldhand on a plantation and, like many blues musicians, he moved to Chicago as a young man. In Chicago he became associated with the Chess brothers and their house songwriter, Willie Dixon whose Chess Box is reviewed separately. The booklet gives a listing of musicians playing in his band. Muddy Waters, of course, is the vocalist and guitar player. The set is a best buy and a recommended gift for people who like the blues, along with the Willie Dixon Chess set The Chess Box , and some others.
To get some background on the blues, you might read the short story collection "Delta Blues" edited by Carolyn Haines. Delta Blues You are also referred to other books providing factual background material.
