Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go, down to New Orleans
You know I love you so

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
I get you way'd out here, and let you walk alone

Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
I beg you all night long, baby, please don't go

You brought me way down here
You brought me way down here
You brought me way down here
'bout to Rolling Forks, you treat me like a dog

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go, back the New Orleans
I beg you all night long

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
I get you way'd out here, and let you walk alone

You know your man down gone
You know your man down gone
You know your man down gone
To the country farm, with all the shackles on

Muddy was a regular at Fry Foggles, mid-70s.  Gawd we loved to dance.   Within 20 feet of Muddy and his band.  
 
Them was the days Brother!
Dancing with the King.
Drinking and smoking in the basement  with Papa John Creach -north of baltimore
Man what a time.
All the music and  crazy shit we did
How the hell did we survive?
This is real deal blues jack
Van had an excellent teacher.
OK again

My rating stays at 7

Shoot...Kid Rock does a better job than this old guy. Who is this guy any way and why do play him so much/


And what is that strange honking sound...I think alot old old guys play it.


Gee...why not play just "thud and drone" guitars?

 
 


Props to Johnny Winter for the outstanding production, guitar and vocals on this Muddy Waters "Hard Again" period

I find almost all of Muddy's tunes played here are 8s or better to my ears....what a bad ass he was!  Long Live RP!!
Harmonica blues theme going?
OK...if you are going to play Charlie M, and now Muddy (Little Walter on harp?).....then you got to play Mr Super Harp, himself: JAMES COTTON!  

Then Magic Dick from J Geils doing Whamer Jammer.   
For me this is  7 - Quite Likeable

 What? Language? Is? That? 
Poor fellow. Something seems right about your handle. 
King Muddy  : )

It's "Muddy Week" on RP, ladies and gentlemen...
I remember seeing him a couple of times back in that time frame.

Man could that man plays {#Bananajam}
Can not imagine a world without Muddy's music... {#Clap}

A sweet young thing was highly enamored with Muddy way back when- thought he was the sexiest man alive (he was alive at the time).

Anyway, she was very, uh...understanding. I finally got it. Quite sure I never displaced number one, though. You the Man, Muddy. Sometimes you just have to trust the natural order of things. {#Notworthy}

 
Strong words learned Man!  Live and learn, and rock on! Cheers

This song is still soooo good for the ears...

What an incredible acceleration in tempo and attitude: Peter Gabriel's soul-wrenching Blood of Eden, to Roxy Music, to Muddy Waters jiving blues!

Bill, you sure know how to mix it up! 
Wow...it's 8:30 am and I'm spilling my coffee. Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon in the morning?


Shoudln't this be the time for Shadowfax (that's a joke).


 
Makes me wish I was back in Chi-Town for the Blues Festival this weekend.  Chicago was a great place to grow up, and I can't believe it's been thirty years since I moved west:0

Maybe I'll tune into wxrt.com today to see how the festival is going.  It's the only other "radio station" I'll listen to besides RP...
that's about the time I first saw him. 

Right back there, man is that some good playing. 
{#Cheers} {#Clap} {#Clap} {#Cheers}
It's always good to hear some classic blues from the master

Guitarists Luther Johnson, Bob Margolin (who was in Muddy's road band for years), and Johnny Winter are all credited in the liner notes. The break on this one sounds an awful lot like Winter.
{#Eh}

  So  I take it that you are not at all interested in where Rock'n Roll came from.. Thats a pretty narrow minded comment  you made. Still I suppose you know more than Teacher.

Thank you for saying this, Toke!  {#Notworthy}   {#High-five}


Always liked this song from the first time I heard it by Them (Van Morrison).

Hey... Not a fan of the BLUES??  I LOVE IT!!  Thanks RP!!!

What a glorious set.
Floyd, Gabriel, Roxy Music and Muddy Waters.
Just joy to the ears.
crank it up!!!!
The real deal!


This song is soooo good for the ears...

 
Sounds like Mike Bloomfield on guitar....
Lyle Lovett to Muddy Waters.

Life is good.
Tell me, Bill, that you didn't read my comment earlier this morning on the Tom Petty song. Eerie.

The blues great Muddy crankin' it out
great song for a sunny afternoon!
Anything associated with Muddy Waters is instantly excellent
Can anyone confirm Little Walter on harp ?? It's really baaaaaad, and that means goooooood. :jump:
Wow! That guitar player sure has a Stevie Ray sound -- or chronologically speaking, I guess it's the other way around but I discovered SRV first so... Anybody knows who's playing by the way?
This is why I love RP!!!
Ahhhhhhhhhh! One of the Greats! :dance: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Is that Little Walter on harp?
man i love blues. i am south african and it was my long last dream to visit chicago and listen to some blues, which i did 4 years ago. man what a fantastic city. wish i could live there. brilliant.

Exactly! Try the Chicago BluesFest, every year at beginning of June, in Grant Park. Some of the best blues from around the country, past and present.
Another recommendation- the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival- last weekend in April, first weekend in May--- yes, it's still alive and kicking and always will be....
Yup. Who is it on this cut? I'm really diggin' it.

Ahh you guys make me miss the Taste of Chicago/Bluesfest/and all the other hot summer festivals in Chicago.
Ahh, yes! I can tell you that the Bluesfest in Chicago is alive and well, even though Muddy Waters is not. I went with my wife and four month old son (trying to raise him right!) this past June, and it was a blast!! We saw Koko Taylor, Buddy Guy and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The only thing that I regretted was not being alive to see the first bluesfest in Chicago, which featured Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and other deceased blues icons.
Here's another of our native sons. Rolling Fork to Clarksdale. Less than an hour from where I sit typing.
This is just one tiny example of an outstanding lineup this morning. Thank you RP. (Yep, it's morning on this side of the world.)

For a more frequent dose of the blues in Chicago: Friday afternoons from 5 to 7 or 8, Buddy Guy's has a free acoustic set. Not so crowded, pretty chill, great gumbo, and $6 pitchers (small) of Honkers.

If Mugro were king ( :crown: ), people attempting to give Muddy Waters a 1 would have their rating privileges revoked and would spend some time in the stockade. :war:
