Overview

The Lost Tapes

The magnificent Chicago bluesman Muddy Waters lives again on THE LOST TAPES, a set of 11 cuts taken from concerts that were recorded in 1971 at the universities of Washington and Oregon. Muddy and his band cover some of his signature tunes --"Honey Bee," "Mannish Boy," and "Got My Mojo Working" are among them -- but the kicker is a live clip of "Long Distance Call" that can be viewed by Windows users. Dressed in a plaid jacket Muddy is magnetic, drawing you in with his elegant but earthy presence. There is also a clip of an interview with Waters on a tour bus, Big Mama Thornton at his side.Though he doesn't reveal any new tidbits in what he says, just the chance to hear that resonant voice tell of growing up in Mississippi is a thrill.Music and movies of Muddy Waters: It doesn't get any better than this for late --20th- - century blues fans.

At first I wasn't sure how I would like this album - it is, after all, mostly a live "hits" collection. After listening just once, though, I was amazed at the musicianship and energy this album has and it is good to hear Muddy playing a lot of guitar here. To me, this is a better live document than "Muddy 'Mississippi' Waters Live", which is still a great record. Could the people who compiled it have added more songs from the shows it was recorded at? Of course. But what we have is a testament to what a truly amazing blues player Muddy really was.
