    Folk Singer

    Ranked 280/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Cut at 45 RPM For The First Time Ever!

    From the original 1964 Chess analog masters! Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!

    Mastered by Bernie Grundman.

    New Gatefold jacket, with extra photos!


    Folk Singer has been an audiophile staple for years. It always gets a bunch of play at hi-fi shows. It's a no-doubter demonstration disc. But never before has it sounded like this! Never has it been cut at 45 RPM!


    There are a handful of landmark albums in any genre. In the blues, one of them is Muddy Waters' Folk Singer. Originally released in 1964, Folk Singer was the only acoustic album Waters ever recorded, thus becoming the first and perhaps best blues concept album ever. Muddy of course started out playing acoustic blues in the Delta, and he's clearly very comfortable in this return to his roots, which was designed to appeal to the mid-1960s surge of interest in folk music.


    Muddy's supporting cast includes a very young Buddy Guy on guitar, Willie Dixon at the upright bass and Clifton James on drums.


    This recording has enormous presence with ample room for Muddy's booming voice to resonate.

    Electric Mud

    Electric Mud is a studio album by Muddy Waters. Released in 1968, it is a concept album which imagines Muddy Waters as a psychedelic musician. Producer Marshall Chess suggested that Muddy Waters record experimental, psychedelic blues tracks with members of Rotary Connection in an attempt to revive the blues singer's career.


    The album peaked at #127 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. It was controversial for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements, but was influential on psychedelic rock bands of the era.

    King Bee

    King Bee is the final release by Blues legend Muddy Waters (born in 1913 as McKinley Morganfield), originally released in 1981 and produced by Johnny Winter. Due to Waters' failing health, the LP was recorded in only three days in May of 1980. The LP includes newly recorded Muddy Waters classics, such as I'm A King Bee, Champagne & Reefer, Sad Sad Day and (My Eyes) Keep Me In Trouble. Around the time of the album's release, Waters hit the road with a new band as much as his slowly declining health allowed him to.


    By the end of 1981, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and had to have part of his lung removed. Still, in 1982 a new tour was booked but an increasing number of performances had to be canceled. And after having made a surprise appearance at an Eric Clapton concert in Miami that Summer, Waters found out the cancer had returned as he was coughing blood. Sadly, his body wasn't strong enough for another operation. On April 30, 1983 McKinley Morganfield died of a heart attack. Five years later he was posthumously inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Amongst his admirers are Buddy Guy, The Rolling Stones, Rory Gallagher, John Mayall and Steve Winwood.

    Muddy Waters Masterwork Live Album! In Stereo!


    First Time Official Audiophile Vinyl - Stunning First Time Gatefold Cover


    Mastered From The Authorized Chess Records Stereo Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    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 his career cutting early sides for defunct labels
    before landing in Chicago in the early forties, where he began a long climb to the top of the blues world, later cutting a series of
    hit sessions for Aristocrat which became Chess Records. Phil and Leonard Chess knew they had a kingpin on their hands when
    Muddy started his endless stream of blues smashes. The label honored the man with his first live album simply titled Muddy Waters
    At Newport 1960. Recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival, Muddy drove the crowd into a frenzy with his famous guitar licks and his
    Delta growl, truly a thrilling presence on the stage.


    Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary James Cotton on harp and the masterful Otis Spann on piano, Muddy
    Waters At Newport 1960 would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day Chicago blues history.


    Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits I Got My Brand On You, Muddy continues to rock the crowd through a
    treasure trove of 8 more blues champions which made this one of the most important live recordings of all time. The album features
    classic gems like his classics Got My Mojo Working, Baby Please Don't Go, and I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Noted for his stellar
    guitar work, pretty much introducing his Chicago laden blues style to a whole new generation of guitar players, Muddy Waters At
    Newport 1960 became truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues guitarists for years like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat
    and The Rolling Stones. Muddy broke down barriers for millions of music fans worldwide to enjoy rock and blues, making him along
    with John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Robert Johnson one of the first pioneers of the blues and rock genre.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. That is why we are so
    very proud to announce another installment in The Muddy Waters/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his legendary

    Includes 12 Page Insert


    Muddy Waters 100 is the centennial celebration of his birthday (April 4, 1915) and also a commemoration of this immense legacy. This compilation covers the broad spectrum of the Waters catalog from Country Blues to the pioneering Chess studio sessions in Chicago.


    The album With an all-star lineup of Blues specialists and veterans under the direction of vocalist/guitarist, longtime Waters alumnus, and close friend John Primer, the mood is set with the trademark Got My Mojo Working, featuring vocalist Shemekia Copeland trading verses with Primer.


    Also featuring Bob Margolin, who also spent many years in the Waters band. Johnny Winter (who produced four Muddy Waters albums in the 1970's) was brought in as guest slide guitarist on I'm Ready, and harmonica wizard James Cotton livens up Good News, and I Feel So Good, adding an authentic touch, as he played on the original recordings in the late 1950's. Representing the younger generation of bluesmen are Billy Branch, who sits in on harmonica on several tracks, and guitarists Gary Clark Jr., Keb Mo,' and Derek Trucks, who were requested to add a contemporary flavor to the celebrated repertoire.

    Muddy Waters Sings Big Bill (Speakers Corner)

    In 1960, when Muddy Waters recorded this album as a tribute to Big Bill Broonzy two years after his death, he could be sure of Broonzy's approval. »Oh yeah, Muddy is a real singer of the Blues«, Big Bill, that Mississippi foundation stone, was heard to say early on in Muddy Waters' career, although the sound of the man 15 years his junior could be likened to new shoots coming out of the gnarled root named the Blues.



    Full of confidence after a "Best Of" compilation released on the Chess label in 1959 and his legendary appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, Muddy set down his own Broonzy songs. It goes almost without saying that such successful numbers as "I Feel So Good" and "Tell Me Baby" are overflowing with a 'Chicago feeling' which gets right under your skin. Pulsating with the metallic heartbeat of the electric guitar and the gyrating licks which James Cotton conjures out of his harmonica, the cover title amalgamates the individual styles of two top-notch Blues musicians to produce a highly emotional mixture. And let's not forget the band formed around keyboarder Otis Spann, their fellow musician of many years' standing. Just listen carefully to this small but excellent ensemble and you will certainly forget the banal term 'rhythm group'!





    Musicians:



    • Muddy Waters (vocal)

    • James Cotton (harmonica)

    • Pat Hare (guitar)

    • Otis Spann (piano)

    • Andrew Stephenson (bass)

    • Francey Clay, Willie Smith (drums)




    Recording: July and August 1959 in Chicago




    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Hard Again

    Muddy Waters needs no introduction. The Chicago-based blues singer has been in the business since the 1940s, influencing the 60s blues rock movement spearheaded by the Rolling Stones.

    After The Rain

    The second of two electric-blues albums released on Chess Records and Cadet Concept imprint in the late 60s, Muddy Waters' After the Rain has achieved cult-like status amongst blues fans in the years since his death in 1983. After taking a backlash from critics with first attempt at adopting psychedelic influences on Electric Mud, Muddy made adjustments for the follow-up, despite keeping a majority of the same session players. This time, he toned down the psychedelic elements and put them in balance with his classic Chicago blues sound, and the results yield some vintage tracks that glow with fuzzy guitars and bass: I Am the Blues, Ramblin' Mind, Bottom of the Sea, and Blues Trouble. After being out of print for years, Get On Down is proud to present this rare classic from Muddy Waters pulled from the original masters and presented on LP.

    The Lost Tapes

    In concert in the late '60s and early '70s, Muddy Waters was still tearing it up in his grand old style, as is evident on this previously unreleased concert recording from 1971. Muddy had not yet begun to bring the younger generation into his band, so bona fide Chicago blues vets like pianist Pinetop Perkins and drummer Willie Big Eyes Smith are on hand to provide that classic '50s Chess sound on a program of gems from Muddy's glory days. The urgency and fire of his earlier recordings is replaced here by a more seasoned, understated approach but instead of detracting from the performances, it adds a deeper level of ominous insinuation to Muddy's sultry tales of lust.

Water's performances across Europe in the 50s and at Newport helped popularize blues to broader audience, especially to whites. The album is often said to be one of the first blues live albums.

    Muddy Waters, the undisputed king of Chicago blues, hit a string of highly successful albums in the late 70s. In between Hard Again and King Bee came in 1978 I'm Ready, a powerful blues record containing new material and classic reworks. Driving blues burners such as Willie Dixon's "I'm Ready" and "Rock Me" are varied by slow jams like "33 Years", "Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Screamin' And Cryin'". Muddy is clearly feeling alright with these song selections. As on Hard Again, Johnny Winter is taking care of the production duties, allowing I'm Ready to be a spontaneous outburst of pure bluesyness, with a lively feel.

    I'm Ready (Pure Pleasure)

    For the middle album of his Johnny Winter-produced, late-'70s musical trilogy, blues giant Muddy Waters brought a new spirit to some familiar material. Starting with members of Waters' touring band - pianist Pinetop Perkins, bassist Bob Margolin, and drummer Willie Big Eyes Smith - Winter added underrated guitarist (and longtime Waters foil) Jimmy Rogers and extraordinary harp player Big Walter Horton to the mix. The songs recorded for I'm Ready offer a mix of new material and vintage hit singles like the title cut, the mid-'60s jewel Screamin' and Cryin', or the Willie Dixon-penned I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man. Waters and band provide these well-worn gems with a little new studio polish, but it is with the newer songs that the performers really shine.



    Musicians:



    • Muddy Waters (guitar, vocal)

    • Johnny Winter, Jimmy Rogers (guitar)

    • Walter Horton, Jerry Portnoy (harmonica)

    • "Pine Top" Perkins (piano)

    • Bob Margolin (bass)

    • Willie "Big Eyes" Smith (drums)





    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    The Super Super Blues Band (Awaiting Repress)

    Limited Edition Pressing On Light Orange Opaque Vinyl


    Super Super Blues Band starter out merely as Super Blues, a conglomerate of blues pillars Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters and Little Walter. When Little Walter bowed out and was replaced by Howlin' Wolf, they rightfully threw another Super on the name, and went on to release this burning, irreverent and even sometimes hilarious set of drunken, wild-eyed electric blues. Long form jams roll on in a trance as the trio of blues legends flex egos, talking shit to each other, trading off leads and ducking blasts of unexpected wah-wah guitar lines. Songs are peppered with an incredible level of banter between the trio of bandleaders that predicts the call and response sing-talking of early hip hop, laced with random screams in the background that teeter between celebration and danger.


    That these three ever got into the same room together is a miracle, and that they produced something so intense, energetic and weird is another almost unbelievable feat. The record is special enough as a stand-alone document of this meeting/melting of the minds before you find out the backing band consists of Hubert Sumlin, Otis Spann, and freaking Buddy Guy. Lordy. Might have needed one more Super in there.

    T. Bone Blues

    T-Bone Walker's masterpiece T-Bone Blues on Atlantic Records is often cited as not only one of his finest achievements, but also one of the blues genre's most important crowned jewels. This 1959 classic showcases the late blues master's legendary handling of the electric guitar and his unequalled ability to powerfully sing some of the most revered classics in modern blues history.


    This definitive classic recording features this multi-talented artist's finest tunes like T-Bone Shuffle, Papa Ain't Salty No More and of course the iconic Stormy Monday Blues. Over the years, many acclaimed artists have gone back to this album for inspiration. Classic blues rockers like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, B.B. King, John Mayall, The Allman Brothers, Boz Scaggs and Doug Sahm have all interpreted several songs from this classic album. Out of print for over forty years in the vinyl format, Friday Music is thrilled to announce the first time 180g gram audiophile vinyl release of T-Bone Walker's landmark masterpiece T-Bone Blues.


    Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (T-Bone Walker/Muddy Waters/Johnny Winter/Boz Scaggs) from the original Atlantic Records monophonic tapes, this audiophile LP truly excites the listener, as each note bent and every vocal laid down by T-Bone Walker are truly captured in this historic recording.


    Friday Music has corrected the original running order of this wonderful blues release, the first time since 1959, as well as used the original artwork elements and the stunning liner notes written by the late Ralph J. Gleason. As always, Friday Music includes a poly bag for the album cover and a poly line sleeve to protect your 180g vinyl album.
