Lost Treasures: Muddy Waters – “Forty Days & Forty Nights”


This week’s Lost Treasure is from 1956 on prestigious blues label – Chess Records in Chicago.  Muddy Waters was in his prime in the 1950’s and charted numerous times on the R&B charts, but rarely cracked the top 40.  In spite of this, he inspired many of the British blues bands that launched in the 1960’s during the “British Invasion”.  Artists such as the Cyril Davies, the Alexis Korner All-Stars, Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, John Mayall & the early Fleetwood Mac covered his tunes. This blistering blues number features a great solo from legendary harmonica player Little Walter.  Enjoy your weekend & turn it up loud!
