Muddy Waters King Bee 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe
Reagoso & Pressed at RTI!
Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield) will always be known as one of the founding
fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique
vocal prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago and Mississippi
Delta blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of
rock and blues performers worldwide.
With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began
working in the late seventies with one of his biggest fans Johnny Winter,
cutting his final four albums for Blue Sky Records, earning both the artist and
producer both Grammy Awards for several of them.
Their final studio recording King Bee, shows the artist and producer in very
rare and rockin’ form. The 1981 blues smash features a plethora of Muddy Waters
originals, as well as tip of the hat to Slim Harpo with Muddy’s classic
rendition of King Bee.
Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary late great Johnny
Winter on guitar, James Cotton on harp and the masterful Pinetop Perkins on
piano, King Bee would go on to become one of the more revered studio albums in
Muddy Water’s extensive recorded catalog.
Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits King Bee, Muddy continues
to rock the house through a treasure trove of 9 more blues champions which made
this LP the classic that it is. The album features classic gems like his
classics I Feel Like Going Home, Champagne And Reefer, and Deep Down In Florida.
Noted for introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of
guitar players, King Bee is just another example of how important this late
blues master’s music was and still is to millions of fans across the globe.
