Stuck Inside the Office with the Corporate Blues Again (Part 2)

And Da Blues train keeps on a-rollin’ along here at Corporate Hell with my next album selection, the ‘Muddy & The Wolf‘  album featuring Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and a whole of other guys.

The title is a bit of a ringer, since this isn’t a collaborative effort in any way, shape, or form.  The songs on this album are actually taken from two other albums, ‘The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions‘, and ‘Fathers And Sons‘, a Muddy Waters LP, both released in the early 70’s.

The album contains a half-dozen live Muddy Waters tracks with backing from Mike Bloomfield, “Duck” Dunn, Paul Butterfield, and Otis Spann, (culled from the ‘Fathers & Sons‘ sessions) as well as tracks by Howlin’ Wolf (the ‘London Sessions‘ with Eric Clapton, Charlie Watts and Ringo Starr).

However, despite this not being exactly original material, it is still a magnificent live album that showcases why these Chicago blues legends are still legends today.  Both performances are engaging, witty, and raw. This includes classics such as ‘All Aboard‘, ‘I’m Ready‘, ‘Can’t Lose What You Ain’t Never Had‘, ‘What a Woman!‘, and ‘Red Rooster‘ played in all their forceful glory.  If you want the actual recordings (which I would highly recommend) then grab the two aforementioned album, however, this is still nice, handy listen today here at the office thanks to YouTube (click HERE).

About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
