Muddy Waters: Show 206


Get your boots on it’s about to get muddy all up in here! Muddy Waters, born McKinley Morganfield (April 4, 1913-April 30, 1983), in Mississippi, is considered the Father of the Chicago Blues.

Muddy was first recorded by Allen Lomax for the Library of Congress in 1941.  The $20 in his pocket and a pressed record in hand was just enough for Muddy to believe in his art.   “I carried that record up to the corner and put it on the jukebox. Just played it and played it and said, ‘I can do it, I can do it.”

Along with Muddy tonight, hear some good old classics from Bo Carter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Albert King, Johnny Shines and more…
