The Official Muddy Waters Site & Downloadable Sound Files

I have had it on my list of things "to do" for a while now to write something about the Official Muddy Waters Site. While it has not been updated in a while, it is a wealth of info for the Muddy Waters fan or for someone who is just getting turned on to the "God Father of the Blues."

The site is easy to navigate and has some sections that provide information about Muddy Waters that I doubt you could find anywhere else. There is of course a Bio Section. The bio is excerpted from "Gone to Mainstreet," Bluesland, E. P. Dutton, 1992 by Pete Welding. It is through and makes the point of Muddy Waters' impact on the blues and all other post war music.

One of the sections that I really enjoyed is the Muddy Art section. It has some photos of Muddy Water that you will probably see no where else. The Candid photo section has some great photos of Muddy and his friends.

The Sound Bytes section was of special interest because it has links to some Real Network Sound files. The files linked on this page are;

  • The Voice "Mannish Boy" from Hard Again

  • Acoustic Slide "I Be's Troubled" from The Complete Plantation Recordings

  • Electric Slide "Long Distance Call" from Fathers & Sons as well as Muddy & The Wolf

This brief overview that I have provided only scratches the surface of the information, photos and other multimedia that can be found at this awesome site. Make sure you add it to your Favorites List.
