I'm really confused about these low ratings. The mastering on this comp sounds amazing. I have the Chess Box but kept this comp because it's the best sounding Muddy I own.

Really poor quality pressing. Avoid this one, not worth the money.

I really enjoy this release. A lot of energy and Muddy's vocals really shine! I don't have a 1st press but likely the best you will hear of this album. Thanks Mr. Gray!

For the most part it sounds really good. But it sounds like the original masters may have suffered tape deterioration because some songs like "I just want to make love to you" and "rolling stone" have pretty bad distortions with highs being overblown and the later having a lite tape hiss in the background throughout the track. Actually "rolling stone" is almost unlistenable, there's real bad distortion and static on a lot of the guitar parts. Anyone else have that issue? It's odd, because the next track fires up perfectly fine, crystal clear. But for some reason "rolling stone" is just wretched and that's a shame cuz it's one of my favorite cuts. It's really just those two tracks that have problems. The rest of the record is is quiet and has nice warmth. Muddy's voice really stands out which is a plus, but the range with some of the high notes he hits doesn't translate well at times. But for the most part I think it's a decent listening experience. 7/10.

This pressing sounds incredible considering the price. I assumed it would be sourced from a poor digital copy, but it has warmth, clarity and incredible dynamics.

Recently purchased a very nice Original MONO Copy of this LP on Chess LP-1427 (Black Silver Label) However the back side of cover is BLANK. Does anyone have any information on this fact? Did CHESS do this regularly, say as a PROMO? Or is this an ERROR? Add or detract value to this rare LP? I cannot find any information anywhere. The Original Owner told me he purchased this new in 1957, and has had ever since. Sounds great! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Let's separate it, so there is no confusion:
The music is superb, Muddy Waters was and always be one of the greatest bluesmen ever.
This pressing is bad, a piece of shit made from lousy quality assorted digital files downloaded from the internet or ripped from discount bin CDs. Even the cover is poorly done, it's so dark that it may as well have been just a black square. Avoid this even if it is cheap.

Really great reissue. It sounds better than the original to my ears (and MUCH more affordable)

Does anyone know what year this is

I have an opportunity to pick up a VG cover and NM copy for $25. Is it worth it?

Thanks Roger
