This Week On The South Side: Muddy Waters
Mike Dronkers / Friday, April 4, 2014 @ 10:03 a.m.
Starting with a 78-rpm release in 1948, Muddy Waters led the way to modern blues with a powerful, compelling voice and urgent, original sound.
It's also the birthday of R & B singer Major Lance ('Monkey Time'), Hugh Masekela and Big Chief Jolly of the Wild Tchoupitoulas, (George Landry) uncle of the Nevile brothers. I'll feature some of each, but go deep with tunes from Muddy.
