Overview

Muddy Waters’ name is always mentioned when fans speak of the blues, and Chicago blues in particular. But Waters was far from just a player—he was a master of the genre. Fusing the two influences of his beloved Son House and Robert Johnson, his deep, dark vocal tone and killer slide guitar set the benchmark for many bands of the acts he would inspire—from Eric Clapton to The Rolling Stones. This expansive set tells his life story and traces his musical influence, which is still felt today. The Legendary Performers series is a heady mixture of spoken-word and music packages, covering some of the most influential performers of all time. All titles are expansive 4-CD sets, with two CDs in each set consisting of a newly researched audio-biography. The remaining two CDs feature complementary music track recordings from the artist, and all packages are presented in luxury full-colour slipcases. Two 8-page booklets of background information accompany each set, featuring a host of previously unpublished photographs throughout which will delight and surprise even the most obsessive collector.
