Muddy Waters "Mckinley Morganfield" CD

CD - $14.99
Muddy Waters' 1971 retrospective album A.K.A. McKinleyξMorganfield caused some confusion during its initial release. The album's original title was A.K.A. Muddy Waters, but the final printingξfeatured the Chicago blues legend's birth name in a larger typefaceξthan his stage moniker, leading it to frequently be mis-shelved inξrecord stores, much to the chagrin of his fans.ξ
Title confusion aside, A.K.A McKinley Morganfield remained in highξdemand among blues enthusiasts during its release. At the time it wasξthe most complete and paramount collection of Waters' material fromξ1948 to 1960, his works that directly inspired the British bluesξexplosion of the 1960s. His evolution and development from aξtraditional Delta blues sound to the refined full band sound that cameξto define him can be heard throughout the album's 24 tracks.
From early versions of Muddy Waters signature songs such as "Rollin'ξand Tumblin'", "I'm Ready", and "Got My Mojo Working", to covers ofξstandards by the likes of Willie Dixon and Robert Johnson, ChessξRecords left no stone unturned in assembling A.K.A. McKinleyξMorganfield. The end result was a potent collection of Waters' finestξearly material, which up to that point had only seen release asξscattered singles, and a perfect profile of the first half of the career ofξblues royalty.
