Mississippi born singer-guitarist Muddy Waters was much more than an influential blues man, he was an artistic epicenter, a rare, luminous astral body around whom it seemed, at certain points, the entire post-war blues galaxy was centered. It would not be an exaggeration to say that Muddy represented the celestial pole of the blues' very center, a point of connection between the music's symbolic heaven and earth, one through which owed a surging force so powerful it not only affected how musicians performed, it reached into the very social-cultural fabric of the nation, and eventually the world.

Bound together by a rare symmetry of creative elements, he also ultimately represents a uniting force that, through his pervasive influence on rock & roll's practitioners, brought black and white together at time of profound division. Muddy changed everything. He proposed a modern blues reality so tangibly potent and loaded with soul deep appeal that it was like a portal to undreamed of realm, and all who entered therein were made a gift of Muddy's singular philosophical rhythms and truth. As a ringmaster for rock & roll – a Godfather who not only facilitated but also participated by leading Chuck Berry to the recording studio, inspiring and touring with the Rolling Stones – he is completely unique all over again.

Not just another hits collection, this deep 14-track offering from Black Knight Records gathers some of the early Chicago blues numbers that Muddy Waters made his name on and where his legend began including: "Five Long Years," "Elevate Me Mama," "You Shook Me," "Messin' With The Man," "I Got My Brand On You," "Read Way Back," "When I Get To Thinking," "Baby I Done Got Wise," "Recipe For Love," "Diamonds At Your Feet," "She's Into Something" and "She's All Right."
