Chess Records Stereo 1964Cover has water damage in the lower part
The most talked about “true audiophile” blues recording. Captured from the original 1964 Chess Analog Master Tapes, this is an intimate and spooky studio production. FOLK SINGER is a heralded recording from the King of the Delta Blues equally for its sonic qualities as for its content. Originally released on Chess in 1964, this title has repeatedly surfaced on Audiophile’s Top 20 Lists for its superior sound. Rare for most true pre-80’s Blues recordings.
FOLK SINGER represents a departure from the electric urban Blues sound that Muddy Waters pioneered. It is an all acoustic collection of recordings that illustrates his deep rooted rural Blues influences reminiscent of the recordings he made nearly 25 years prior in Mississippi. This release features Muddy Waters on Vocals and Guitar supported by the great Buddy Guy on Guitar, Blues Legend, Willie Dixon on Bass, and Clifton James on occasional Drums.
