Muddy Waters - Folk Singer (LP)
Wax Love presents a reissue of Muddy Waters' Folk Singer, originally released in 1964. At the peak of the folk revival, Muddy Waters entered the studio to record an all-acoustic set. Known for his distinctive electric blues style, this recording was definitely a departure for Waters, but the results are historically great. A beautiful album from start to finish, Folk Singer features the great Buddy Guy on guitar, and Willie Dixon on bass (he also produced the album); this has come to be known as one of Waters' best albums. A great piece of acoustic blues from one of the legends of the genre.
