Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary James Cotton on harp and the masterful Otis Spann on piano, "Muddy Waters At Newport 1960" would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day Chicago blues history.
Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits "I Got My Brand On You", Muddy Waters continues to rock the crowd through a treasure trove of 8 more blues champions which made this one of the most important live recordings of all time.
The album features classic gems like his classics "Got My Mojo Working" "Baby, Please Don’t Go" and "I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man." Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, "Muddy Waters At Newport 1960" became truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues guitarists for years like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat and The Rolling Stones.
Muddy broke down barriers for millions of music fans worldwide to enjoy rock and blues, making him along with John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Robert Johnson one of the first pioneers of the blues and rock genre.
