Muddy Waters was one of the all-time Blues greats

Muddy Waters left an enduring legacy in the Blues world, with his work still being covered and re-interpreted to this day. While there are numerous recordings of “Mannish Boy”, I prefer the ‘Hard Again’ version he recorded with Johnny Winter in 1977. And for the cover, we get a member of his 1960’s Chess Records band, Buddy Guy.

Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy”.
