Electric Mud based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The professional critic who reviewed this album doesn't like it much but when this collection of Muddy Waters songs (redone with a psychedelic electric band backing him up, complete with screaming electric guitars) first came out it was very well received and was a great reminder that the Blues were at the roots of Rock and Roll. Far from being embarrassed (as the professional critic claims) Muddy sounds like he's having a pretty good time with the effort. Certainly it is more of a 60's hippy album than a Blues album, but that was the whole point of making the album, and it's a point well taken.
