"Muddy Waters changed everything. A singular powerhouse whose electrified approach jump-started an entire new musical era, he crafted a modern blues reality so potent and loaded with soul deep appeal that it was like a portal to a new world, one where all who entered were made a gift of Muddy's singular philosophical rhythms and truth. And as a ringmaster for rock & roll -- a Godfather who not only facilitated but also participated by leading Chuck Berry to the recording studio, inspiring and touring with the Rolling Stones -- he is completely unique all over again. His legendary 1950's band's epic Delta funk meets high South Side voltage approach was without peer, and Muddy's warm, self-possessed authority, together with the audacious, aggression of Little Walter's harmonica and Otis Spann's moving, expressive piano made for an irresistibly raw, insanely perfected unit, one that is captured here in all of its splendid, hard-driving grandeur."
