3.0 goodRobbit | May 7th 16

Chess Records recorded this live set at the Newport Jazz Festival for the purposing of bringing Muddy's music to a wider (&
increasingly white) audience. Many British rock guitarists, including Jimmy Page & Eric Clapton, point back to albums like this
one as having influenced them greatly. While the appeal of such trademark songs as "(I?m Your) Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Baby
Please Don't Go? are immediately evident, I was a bit underwhelmed by the overall album. Muddy?s guitar playing is decent, but
not startling in contrast to his other blues contemporaries. Also, he quickly runs out of lyric steam with such songs as "Tiger
In Your Tank" and the seemingly never ending "I've Got My Mojo Working". (Many of the songs that Muddy played that day were
actually written by Willie Dixon.) Still, I was expecting something more here than what I got.

Favorite tracks: "(I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man? and "Baby Please Don't Go"

The first word that came to my mind while listening to this Muddy Waters live was 'Timeless'. It gots that authentic and warm sound that can easily make your grandparents' finger shaking and I hope our grandchildren will do it the same. Muddy Waters' charismatic voice blends perfectly with those crazy piano/trumpet/harmonica-driven rythmn, and the track 'I Feel So Good' could be the definition of feeling good.
