    I started a book on Muddy Waters, "I Can't Be Satisfied "

    So
    Muddy Waters- The Chess Box, disc one 1947-1954
    Love the early stuff.

    That's a great book.
    The Howlin' Wolf one, Moanin' At Midnight, is a nice side-by-side read, IMO.
    And obviously putting his Chess Box into the mix, as well.:music:

    Agreed. While I really like Johnny Winter and Michael Bloomfield, Muddy's stuff with them didn't compare to his early music.

    Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell - Vol. 1: 1928-1934 disc 4 of 4
    JSP Records

    A very big influence on Robert Johnson's music and vocal style.

    I bought this after reading
    "Escaping The Delta: Robert Johnson and the Invention of the Blues " by Elijah Wald which is a thoroughly researched history of the Blues and a great book on Robert Johnson. It may change your perception of pre-war delta blues men.
    Highly Recommended !
