As a continuing collaboration with Chess Records/Universal Records and the estate of Muddy Waters, Third Man Records is proud to announce the reissue of Muddy Waters' fifth studio album Electric Mud.Electric Mud, which Chess originally released in 1968 has not seen a legitimate domestic vinyl release since 2002, despite it's enormous influence on generations of blues rockers. It features members of Rotary Connection as Muddy's backing band and was very controversial upon it's release for it's fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements. The album is now recognized as a forward-thinking classic, sampled extensively by artists like The Black Keys and Gorillaz.The album will be available on black vinyl pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit, with a beautiful gatefold jacket in it's original black-on-white color scheme, and a four-panel foldout poster.

There is utterly inspired soprano sax from Gene Barge who seems to anticipate Courtney Pine on Tom Cat, the Hendrix vibe has been previously described, there are hints of Cream era Clapton, and I'm lovin' the Allman Brothers funky blues feel on Mannish Boy. This for me is the album that brings it all together. Someone else said this album was ahead of its time - I could't agree more. If you love your rock, jazz, blues, and you want to wig out then PLEASE do yourself a huge favour - you will not regret it. Just don't forget to turn up the beautiful driving bass and keep it cranked up. I'm just going to put it on one more time...
