There is no doubt that Muddy Waters is one of the greatest bluesmen of all time. His music is legendary, full stop. You’ll find his classic cut ‘Got My Mojo Workin’’ on the Selecter playlist for starters. However one album in his impressive back catalog that you could also meddle with is 1968's psychedelic blues-rock experiment ‘Electric Mud’, where the father of Chicago Blues and the king of the amplified urban sound went all fuzzed out wah-wah pedals on us. We know that Overdoz’s Sleezy for one will love this reference.
‘Electric Mud’ features heavy rocking and psychedelically influenced versions of Waters classics, such as ‘Mannish Boy’ and ‘Hoochie Cooche Man’ as well as a couple of new songs and a re-working of the Rolling Stones’ brilliant ‘Let’s Spend The Night Together’. It is a brave step into experimental territory. Apparently Waters himself seems to have not been a fan of the recording, in some later instances disowning it almost entirely. A shame as it is a raw workout of an album with Waters’ incredible blues drawl driving it forward at a crazy pace, and no small amount of Funkadelic-style grooving. Like Gza said, matter of fact bring out the girls and let’s have a mud fight.
