1. SAD LETTER
1. APPEALING BLUES
This is Muddy in his younger years, recorded on several dates spanning 1948-1952 at what were probably his first amplified sessions. Great tracks include the scorching “She’s Alright”, “Kind Hearted Woman” and “Honey Bee”. More Real Folk Blues (originally released in 1967 on the famed Chess Records) is an essential early Muddy Waters compilation for Chicago Blues fans.
As the liner notes by Crawdaddy Magazine’s Paul Williams state: ‘Listening to Muddy Waters is as simple as forgetting your zip code; you just relax your mind, let go of the little things and let the blues come through, clean and easy. When Muddy sings, you feel the blues, and you feel the joy that goes with them.’
