Muddy Waters – After The Rain (1969)

McKinley Morganfield (April 4, 1913 – April 30, 1983), known as Muddy Waters, was an American blues musician, generally considered the “father of modern Chicago blues”. He was a major inspiration for the British blues explosion in the 1960s, and was ranked #17 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Muddy Water’s Electric Mud album was arguably the first example of post-war bluesmen adapting their sound to the burgeoning psych scene of the late 1960s, and unlike many of his contemporaries, Muddy fully embraced the style. After the Rain, the follow up album, gave Muddy a chance to compose in the style and adapt some of his older riffs and motifs. He brews up a potent stew of soul, jazz, rock, funk, and weirdness, stretching the limits of the blues and slicing razorlines in it with his slide guitar.
