Various Artists: Classic Blues Masters - Four Classic Albums (The Best Of Little Walter / The Best Of Muddy Waters / Down And Out Blues / Sings The Blues) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1368

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Roots continues with its Four Classic Roots Albums series with a re-mastered 2CD release featuring one album apiece from Little Walter, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson & Howlin’ Wolf, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details.
Little Walter- “The Best Of Little Walter”, Muddy Waters- “The Best Of Muddy Waters”; Sonny Boy Williamson –”Down & Out Blues” and Howlin’ Wolf- “Sings The Blues”, plus 3 bonus Howlin’ Wolf singles.
Following the incredible success of our Avid Roots series which includes such classic blues names as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Jimmy Reed, B.B King, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Lonnie Johnson, Reverend Gary Davis and Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. We thought it was time to add another couple of names to our Roots roster Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson and re-visit two old friends, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. Our four blues masters all knew each other well and as you will see from the liner notes often played on each other’s albums. They were blues giants, blues friends and blues rivals all playing the same circuits and all trying to make a living playing and recording the blues. We think they all did a pretty good job as you will discover when you take a listen to Classic Blues Masters.
Check out:- Muddy Waters/Howlin’ Wolf (AMSC1162); Lightnin’ Hopkins (AMSC1225, AMSC1254 & AMSC1363); Jimmy Reed (AMSC1214); John Lee Hooker (AMSC1208); B.B.
