TBT Vinyl: Muddy Waters, Hard Again

Muddy 1

Muddy Waters
Hard Again
Blue Sky Records

This record reintroduced Muddy to a new generation of blues fans and was produced by Johnny Winter. It features my favorite version of “Mannish Boy,” mostly because it’s the version WXRT in Chicago played throughout the 80’s and 90’s.
