And I thought it couldn't get any better than Albert King........
Spinning right now, Muddy Waters - Hard Again. This is a minty 1977 first pressing and the sound is captivating. Best recorded rendition of Mannish Boy that I've ever heard. If you're into the blues, you need this one in your collection.
And just look at the personnel on this effort:
Muddy Waters – vocals, guitar
Bob Margolin – guitar
Pinetop Perkins – piano
James Cotton – harmonica
Willie "Big Eyes" Smith – drums
Charles Calmese – bass
Johnny Winter – guitar, producer
