"Electric Mud" by Muddy Waters
Muddy Waters "Electric Mud" 1968 (USA)
Blues fanatics screamed "sellout!" when Muddy Waters released this blatantly psychedelic album, but I give Muddy plenty of credit for trying to stay hip to what kids like Jimi Hendrix were up to at the time. His commanding voice sounds pretty great over these churning fuzz guitar grooves. He mostly remakes his own blues classics (including "Mannish Boy", "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "I Just Want To Make Love To You"), but also covers a Rolling Stones song ("Let's Spend the Night Together").
