Muddy Waters-Folk Singer exemplifies the blues legend's commitment to the genre amid the mid-1960s blues landscape. Born McKinley Morganfield in 1913, Muddy Waters, a renowned slide guitarist and singer, embraced electric blues in Chicago during the 1940s, gaining fame with Chess Records. In the competitive 1960s, he returned to his Mississippi roots, going acoustic for Folk Singer. Accompanied by Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy, and Clifton James, this all-acoustic album showcases Waters' authenticity, notably in tracks like "My Home is in the Delta" and "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl."
