All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
The U.K.'s Proper imprint usually gets it right when it comes to reissues. That said, the trio of Chicago blues collections they released in 2009: Rollin' Stone, Headhunters, and I'm Ready all revolve around Waters in some way.

The DVD may be unnecessary, and it's hard to imagine justifying the purchase of this set when each volume is attractively priced on its own; but hardcore Muddy fans will more than likely be ordering this without reservation.
