I prefer the Muddy Waters
now this is blues. clapton can fuck off.
This album is credited with introducing Chicago-style blues to a white audience and influencing the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Angus Young, and more. Its footprint is so massive that it can't be overstated, and it's easy to see why. Waters starts with some blues standards and slowly turns up the heat until the crowd is going nuts. He plays his penultimate song twice, reportedly exhausting himself to the point that Otis Spann had to sing the final number. It's an expert balance of frenetic energy and casual blues musicianship. Just incredible. Best track: I've Got My Mojo Working - Pt. 2
This album is the culmination and the reason music exists. It’s so raw and pure. We all owe much credit to Muddy Waters and his contemporaries for this earliest version of rock and roll.
Brilliant, despite it being a series of fairly straight blues performances this sounds fantastic. Blues being so formulaic at times, often it's a case of not what one plays, but how one does it; and Waters oozes charisma. Big boy music, played with authority and panache. Makes a lot of what we listen to sound quite juvenile, don't it?
A rip roaring album that showcases how damn good Muddy Waters was. It’s got grit, it’s got amazing solos hell it even boogies and I don’t know what else you’d want from a blues album.
As a guitarist who discovered the blues early on, I recognize this album;s role in bringing the blues to a wider US and UK audience in the early '60s. Muddy Water's influence on artists such as the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton and countless others cannot be overstated. His was the definitive statement of the Chicago Blues (by way of Mississippi). His music is buoyant, joyous, and super accessible.
Fun fast and influential Blues delivered with plenty of mojo. Stellar drums guitar and harp throughout. Got my brand in you, I feel so good, got my mojo working
Love to see Muddy Waters on the list, a true blues legend. Very obviously the progenitor of the blues-rock style that launched copycat acts like the Stones, Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin to their early success. To quote Chance the Rapper: "I got the Chicago blues. We invented rock before the Stones got through." The "we" in that lyric refers to Muddy Waters. I'm not too bothered by this being a live album, considering that a lot of Muddy's best work preceded the album format entirely. I do wish we had certain hits on here like "Rolling Stone" and "Mannish Boy," but these are still great selections. He's got such a fantastic voice for this kind of music, and all the musicians kill it, especially the harmonica, shout out to James Cotton. Really dug this one. Favorite tracks: I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man, Meanest Woman, Soon Forgotten, Goodbye Newport Blues. Album art: A simple picture of Muddy Waters, likely taken at the show. It's a great shot though, great color contrast. You can tell he means business. 4/5
Loved this collection of classic blues performed live. I was personally surprised at how good the recording was for it being from 1960. Stellar guitar, great harmonica, the twiddling of a piano, Muddy's distinctive howl, it all works wonderfully.
Classic blues. Fun voice and sound effects.
When I get blues albums on this list, I always find that I tend to enjoy them, despite the fact that I don't think of myself as much of a blues guy. This sounds like it would have been a really fun concert, and reading about the historical context was interesting as well 4/5
Live albums that end with "At Newport" are guaranteed to be an artist's best. Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, and now Muddy Waters. Waters is obviously a mainstay of blues, and I'd say there isn't nearly enough blues on this list, but I'm glad they chose this one. Blues is a pretty simple genre, so you need to bring as much personality in order to make it shine. Waters had personality in spades. He has full command over the audience, with his naturally compelling voice and excellent guitar skills. The whole set is great, but "Got My Mojo Working" is the clear highlight, followed by part 2 and then the excellent closer "Goodbye Newport Blues". This one is a bonafide classic.
The album that inspired a generation of white British musicians to sound like poor versions of this album.
This may be more a criticism of early blues (or blues in general), but a lot of these tunes sound so similar. I know that's just me being uneducated and unfamiliar with the nuance of solos and lyrical stylings, but I can't quite get into it.
Blues classic from a real OG
Like he wrote the twelve bar structure himself. So good
I really liked it. Added to my favorites.
Great lives blues album. Interesting backstory behind how this one eventually ended up happening. Need to listn to more blues after this one. John Lee Hooker and Howlin' Wolf are next on my list.
Submerge me in a big hot bath of Muddy Waters. I drink up this music. Bloody love it.
Classic blues. What's not to like
Absolute blues masterpieces performed in an incredible atmosphere 4.6
A jazz és blues ősatyja, karcos gitár, ahog, kell. Cserna mellé tökéletes volt.
Muddy being muddy
un delicia de álbum caray
Stellar! An absolute legend, phenomenal audio quality.
Muddy waters is probably the king of live music
Holy lord. There may be nothing more pure.
El otro día me cortaron el pelo mientras veía un video en concierto de Ariana Grande. En mute. Lo que sonaba era un video de youtube con baladas románticas. Así que sonaba, ponle tú, Hacer el Amor con Otro mientras la italoamericana Grande hacia muecas y rictus de sufrimiento junto con sus bailarines. Creo que hay camino que puede ser trazado sin pedos entre Muddy Waters y Ariana Grande. He ahí un gran libro. En fin, Ariana Grande me deprime más que los bombardeos "israelíes" sobre Palestina.
Uptempo blues muziek. Hier kan ik niet blijven op stilzitten!
Loved it! So classic
Good live blues-sound. Includes many of Muddy Waters essentials like Hoochie Coochie Man and Got My Mojo Working. A must for any fan of the Chicago Blues
Great start for the list. Really good, a classical blues album.
One of the greatest blues players showing you why. Album lives up to any hype it could receive with a true performer on display.
This is great blues in a gorgeous live setting. I wish I could have been at this set. This is really really good. You can hear people screaming and getting down. 5 stars.
The founder of the Chicago school of blues. His charisma is felt through his songs. Very exciting and sensual, so far this is the highest score
Feels like the definition of Blues
Absolute dopamine hitter. Chased all the anxiety out of my body.
Without Muddy Waters, there is no British Invasion....or any rock music that's worth listening to.
This was killer! great find, would be a great thing to play in the kitchen while cooking dinner or something. Pleased with this one for sure.
This is a great blues album. The sound is just amazing!
Nostalgic blues album hit me just at the right time.
First of 1001. Is ir Lv = av or Lv = aDv?
29th November 2021 Listened throughout the day while at home home. My jam.
Fantastic live set, would've loved the chance to see Muddy play in-person.
Really an enjoyable album. Soulful and smooth.
I have that one at home, Muddy is great!
And here it is one of the finest Blues artists. Every song is a banger music to dance and to listen. We all know Blues music gave birth to pretty much everything we listen to but it's also amazing music in it's own right and Muddy waters is the master. The piano the brass the vocals all of it sublime.
Blues pretty much as good as gets. All the standards are on here. It's impossible to underestimate how important artists like Muddy Waters were in the development of rock and roll, especially in Britain.
Блюз как он есть, включил услышал в 60е в Ньюпорте вышел.
The argument I have seen online is that the blues has a limited vocabulary. Yes, the blues can be somewhat... limited. But performed by a master, like Waters, the blues will always sound like a lot more. Hard to believe that this is from 60 years ago. The recording sounds pretty good for that long ago. I would have liked a bigger instrumentation, but it's live. So... what can you expect? Amazing guitar work by Muddy Waters here. Without stuff by him, most rock would have not existed.
Never really listened to blues, but this just changed my mind about it
Dude, Muddy Waters is an icon. Newport is iconic. Muddy Waters at Newport is iconic.
New to me, but I love this old style blues music. Something that would fit the mood at any moment.
Ahh, that was a fun listen. Certainly understand why it's made the list! Love a bit of funky harmonica. These songs are really jams, at the end of the day. Relaxing, fun, bluesy. All among my favorite moods. What I love about this album is that it meets you where you are. If you're in a good mood it's toe-tapping, and if you're not, it's mellow. Somehow, amazingly, it occupies both spaces at once very effectively. The sound is so polished it's hard to believe it's even a live album. Amazing. Fave track: I Feel So Good.
Still holds up.
Lovely lovely lovely blues album. Always knew his name, but didn't realize how much I enjoy his music. Toes the line between big band and blues, getting some real big Louisiana sound out of tracks like 'I Feel So Good' / 'Got My Mojo Working' and then settling into a more somber mood for 'I Got My Brand On You' and 'Goodbye Newport Blues'.
Solid album. I will definitely keep this in my rotation.
A timeless classic.
I wanna listen to this. Added to my spotify
10/10, Muddy Waters is the best I really enjoyed Hard Again when I got that album, and this one doesn’t disappoint either he just makes blues so much fun (not that the blues need any help, of course)
A classic live blues album, first heard this 35years ago, and it still brings me out in goosebumps.
12 bar blues is one of my favourite genres and though a bit tame by todays standards, this is the stuff - and standards is the right word.
Really great blues album, probably Muddy Waters' best from what I've read. 9/10
Great stuff - never heard this before.
1/19 Love the energy this live album brings, like a glimpse through time. Certainly a classic. Standout Tracks: I Got My Brand On You, Baby Please Don’t Go, I Feel So Good, I’ve Got My Mojo Working
Musicality was present throughout. Sitting by the pool on a warm summer night in the dim light and enjoying some scotch atmosphere, but also reading a large book in the comfort of your living room atmosphere.
Blues legend. Also have a soft spot for live albums, the energy is always unmatched
Love a bit of the classic ol’ Blues! Easy to listen to/ have in background!
Muddy! He's a great guitarist. Some nice blues on this album.
Dat sweet blues
Classic, you can really see how and why this influenced so many people. Great stuff
Dude sounds like he was a totes a legend.
Good old fashioned blues!
Solid electric blues. Great energy.
Blues med stort B, live
Мадди не зря классика, этот альбом уже слышал, о это не повод чтобы не переслушать еще раз:)
It's hard not to enjoy blues music
One of the best
I enjoyed it
Very good classic blues. What else to say.
The roots of Chicago blues. Muddy Waters has a great classic sound with both his guitar and his vocals. He laid the foundation for years to come.
Still good tunes, 60 years later.
Enjoyed this. Effortless swing, the interplay between the harmonica, piano and bass is a joy. Muddy Waters ties it all together with his deep, rich voice. Will definitely be listening to this again.
can't believe I'm giving a live album this high of a rating
I liked this album, but I usually like the 60s albums so not really a surprise. I will admit that I got a little annoyed by the repeat of some songs, but that’s partially my whole not loving live concert albums.
damn, he's good. i still have only so much time for the blues, but that was a good album.
I had a good time with this. Just having that little bit of audience interaction makes a world of difference in how I receive this kind of music. “When it was all said and done, the water may have been muddy… but the good times were clear.” - Me writing a review of this show for my local newspaper.
Really enjoyed this, also has "Baby, please don't go" which is a fantastic song (in Archer).
Really solid classic blues record. I can forgive the audio quality since it is made up of live recordings from 1960... there’s no way that’ll sound great. Favorite track(s): “Baby Please Don’t Go,” “Feel So Good,” and “Ive Got My Mojo Working”
Tres bon album blues. Un des meilleurs que j’ai entend7 dans cette liste. Probablement car c’est du son live. 4.75
chicago jazz sensation
Una vez más, no sé bien qué decir por el género, pero se oye que todos se la pasaban bomba. Y eso me parece lindo, cómo la gente conecta con la música que disfruta. O sea, también pienso que hay mucho talento, claro y si bien no se me hace distintiva la voz de Muddy Waters (quizá ya dije una tontería), me agrada en general. Creo que la canción que más disfruté fue "I've Got My Mojo Working". Y pues eso, qué legado dejaron los afroamericanos, sin duda. 8/10
Blues de la vieja escuela.
me like the vibes
Great Blues album, amazing story. Rollin' Stone
"I've got my mojo working", gran canción, divertida, energética, percusiones fuertes y entretenido su in crescendo en 2 partes. De lo demás no sé que más comentar, más que fue disfrutable la escucha en general. Buena variedad entre lo movidito y lo melancólico. Mood: quiero romper una guitarra al final de Tiger in your Tank.
Basic bitch blues
Just really not into blues, soz :(
Nice old blues. Class act.
Классический блюзовый альбом, со всеми плюсами и минусами для прослушивания в 2021. При правильном настроении при прослушивании дает множество полезного для понимания жанра и его приемов. Но даже без этих умственных ухищрений прослушивание альбома приносит удовольствие.
Já conhecia. Sempre agradável
Il primo pezzo con questo testo fortemente da maschio anni 50 devo ammettere che mi ha mal disposto e ci sono voluti due ascolti e mezzo per farmela passare. Per il resto è un bel album blues che ha molta energia e i musicisti a supporto mi sono piaciuti molto. E' un disco da 3.5, che stavo per punire con un 3 ma mentre scrivevo ho sentito "Got My mojo working pt2" e metto 4.
In conclusione: Non ce vuole molto a fa' una carbonara decente, ma te la puoi magnà una volta ogni tanto. Quando arriva lo chef che te fa la carbonara non capisci, è bona sì ma alla fine sembra la tua o quella dell'osteria sotto casa. Però fatto sta che te la magneresti pure tutti i giorni. Il blues è la carbonara e Muddy Waters è lo chef.
Essential blues source
Wow. Brilliant from the first moment. Loved the vibes.
When the blues weren’t sad
Never listened to any Muddy Waters before (except maybe on the radio or something). I really enjoyed this album! Live blues. What's not to like?
Ascoltare il live di Muddy Waters è stata un'esperienza molto piacevole. (C'è anche il video dello stesso concerto su YouTube e merita di essere visto). Allora, di base a me il blues piace, ma, come spesso accade in questi casi, dopo un po' mi scoccio. In questo caso però, c'è stato l'attenuante del live che gli ha dato quel qualcosa di magico in più: un 3.5 che va a 4. (Comunque non me la sarei sentita di dargli 3).
The blues ate not my thing. This album does have more going for it than your typical blues guitar album. It's got the feel of a jazz album the piano seems as important as the guitar. But every instrument takes a back seat to Muddy Waters vocal performance. I may well have fou d my favorite blues album. 4.5 🌟
more bluesy than jazzy but lovin it, 4 stas
Soft 4 stars. A clear inspiration to 90% of the music I listen to today. Also this sounds overtly sexual (put my brand on you? Tiger in your tank?!). He has a great voice.
Really solid blues live album. They had me at “Mojo”. Really awesome if you like Chicago style blues
Like Genie from Aladdin (the Robin Williams one, not the Will Smith nonsense) rocking an Everton shirt, eating blueberries and riding a blue whale into the deep blue ocean. All the blues.
I am familiar with Muddy Waters' name, but I couldn't tell you what his signature songs are or if I have heard them. The album was good enough. I've heard a version of "Got My Mojo Working", but I'm not sure if it was Waters or someone else. "Got My Mojo Working" and "I Feel So Good" were the highlights for me. I'd spin this record again.
Full of soul. You can hear how crazy the crowd are for it.
yo that last one slaps
Indisputably hugely influential in its time, another building block for rock n roll and music for decades to come, 4 stars because I assume muddy’s music gets even better
Blues de la vieja escuela.
Clearly impressive. Top of his game. Blues isn’t in my normal listening but easy to listen to and appreciate.
kind of hard to appreciate it without the historical context or the taste in blues music, but it's alright, it gets better closer to the end
Pretty good blues album. In the most positive sense feels like the zenith of commercialized blues. It captures the essence of the genre without feeling like an over indulgence that you might see in other performances.
Carino e divertente
Makes me wanna go to blues night
Solid blues music
A very enjoyable listen
Ya he mencionado que el blues puro no es mi máximo, pero aquí hay una presentación impecable. Waters comienza con "I Got My Brand On You" absolutamente animado y simplemente va construyendo la presentación a partir de esa base. El álbum alcanza su punto máximo con "Tiger In Your Hand", "I Feel So Good" y "Got My Mojo Working". La batería, el piano que casi rebota, la armónica asombrosa y, por supuesto, la guitarra y la voz de Waters son probablemente en esta grabación una de las mejores interpretaciones en vivo que he escuchado. El público parece sentir lo mismo, la banda los lleva a gritos histéricos que generalmente se escucharían en esos públicos de niñas adolescentes viendo a los Beatles o a los Monkees y no de los asistentes a un festival de jazz. Dicho eso, la interpretación es impecable pero tampoco siento que el disco sea perfecto, la selección de canciones a veces es extraña y en particular, como habíamos visto en otros discos de la época, eso de grabar dos versiones de la misma canción no me cuadra del todo. Cerca de la grandeza, el hecho que el blues no sea lo mio quizá es lo que lo detiene de la quinta estrella para mí.
Solid Blues album
What an amazing talent. What really gets me is the passion that comes through in his use of coloratura and his voice.
Really good blues. Standout track for me was I've Got My Mojo Working Pt 2.
There's a charisma to this recording that eases itself across time, space, even the setting for the recording (live albums always capture a different kind of energy, I think. There's an intimacy here that is neither a natural presence on the stage or even in the studio.).
Very interesting how raw things were 60 years ago.
It was really interesting to see one of the styles that influenced rock music. A few of the songs are great, although the lyrics mostly exist to accompany the music rather than have any interesting meaning.
Classic blues album, some great solos. "I'm Your Hoochie Coohie Man" my favourite song on the album.
This was pretty good wish the sound was better but the groove is definitely all there 4 🌟
Great composition and showmanship. Muddy Waters was incredible and you can feel the passion and energy from everyone involved.
Love it but I prefer Howling Wolf
quite good, 4 for sure
106. Live at Newport - Muddy Waters 13 tracks I'm not a huge blues fan, but this was great. Some Blues feels a little droney & monotonous to me, but this was punchy and kept me engaged. Really enjoyed it. 4/5
Thoroughly enjoyed this one!
Muy agradable y muy bueno
Great sound for a live album - you can hear everything you need to musically. Simple start with I Got my Brand on You (classic blues style). You get to hear a bit more instrument skill on Baby Please Don't Go (listen 1min in). Soon Forgotten shows even more of Muddy Water's guitar skill in particular. But for me, it's I've Got My Mojo Working (both parts) that really lights it up.
Great, stomping blues record. Wish the bass had been better recorded, but that's just me I guess. Watching the video footage from this show on YouTube really made the music come alive for me too.
I love blues, and I especially love it live. This did not disappoint. I could hear the energy and low boil burning in his voice. So soulful and intense without being cliché or generic. Loved it!
first listen love chicago blues
A great Blues standard, for a live album it sounds perfect like it could be a studio recording aside from the fact you can hear the crowd getting more and more excited throughout the performance, as well as the little audience interaction bits between songs. What's not to like?
Live, in every sense
Most enjoyable Chicago Blues album.
Bilo kakav blues ima posebno mjesto u mom srcu, pogotovo na mamurne nedjelje.
Svaka cast. Ja ne bi mogla odsvirat ovak nest.
gött häng alltså
I don't know that I've ever listened to Muddy Waters. So, let's see how this goes...! Well, he's cited by pretty much every blues/rock singer/guitarist ever, and with good reason. This sounds like where it all would have come from. I'm not a connoisseur of the blues, but this was a great listen. Things that stood out to me were the quality of the recording, and how trashy (in a good way) the snare/hi-hats sound. And, I love the tinkling piano flourishes in all the right places. In addition to the guitar and harmonica chops. It's all good. And, I'll put this on again.
-Cool blues jamming. I particularly like "Tiger In Your Tank" and "I've Got My Mojo Working" -Nice guitar and harmonica jamming -Some of the lyrics were pretty repetitive lol
Un dels grans directes editats en vinil, amb un Muddy Waters en plena efervescència presentant-se al públic blanc de Newport per primer cop. Referència ineludible de tot el blues rock que havia de venir en el futur i un dels millors directes de blues de la història
4.0 - I love that by the end Muddy Waters turned a polite crowd into converts. Awesome.
forgot how much i loved the blues
Solid blues/rock n roll album. While I find it odd that this list leans into too many live albums, this is one of the great one. Heard live these tracks are more interesting to my ears as I find Blues can go a bit samey for me. No disrespect to the genre, just not completely my taste. No doubt a hardcore blues fan would think the same of some of the punk and pop I love. Muddy Waters is at the top of his game here and his backing band are tight. This is good stuff
Great performance by a great bluesman with a great band. 4 stars.
Classic Muddy Waters.
Pretty cool blues album.
Gran rock de los 60
The first Muddy Waters album I got really introduced his style to me, and I found it pretty inspired and surprisingly engaging. This one (while admittedly released 17 years before the other one) is not as "inspired," so I can't put it at the level of that one, but I do love his command of the blues.
One of my favorite works from mid century. Fun tracks front to back.
Hop damn doodle
I haven’t gotten into blues but this might just do it. I really love the intro part to the first song.
Really holds up
went by fast
I liked the part where he sang about his mojo for 20 minutes
A great, laid back listen. Perfect blues to have on while working or reading.
This was a fun listen.
Can't really judge blues, whether from the Chicago school or any other school. I understand that the way those sorts of songs are performed is pivotal for someone to dig them, but those nuances are simply not graspable to me. So I yes, I can't really judge, at least subjectively. One of the only blues records I have in my collection is the Complete Recordings of Robert Johnson. I guess that doesn't really make me an expert. But in this live album, Muddy Waters still sounds like the real thing to my admittedly ignorant ears. So I'm gonna trust the real experts when they're saying this particular record just changed the lives of thousands and thousands of youths at the time (including The Stones, Clapton, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and countless others), first in the States and then in the UK. This record was released in 1960, and it's one of the very first blues live album ever recorded. I've also noticed lots of Willie Dixon-penned tracks in there too, so I imagine he's worth checking out as well. And of course, I imagine you'd need to add "Mannish Boy" to all this (or Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man", which is basically the same song), to get a broader picture of the powers of that Chicago School. You gotta start somewhere, right? I can also understand the mystique around this album, given the circumstances in which it was recorded, i.e. during a festival that got almost cancelled because of the rioting that had occured there. There are lots of interesting anecdotes about all that online, but I won't delve into them right now, just do the research yourself if you're interested. The bottom line is that this gig (and recording) could have never existed, and popular music during the sixties and beyond would have been slightly different than what it turned out to be. So the words "culturally relevant" don't even do justice to how important this record is (and for once, this clearly goes beyond personal tastes). Those sorts of stakes are best exemplified through the last despondent track, "Goodbye Newport Blues", written right before the gig, with lyrics by none other than poet Langston Hughes--here sung by pianist Otis Spann (given that Muddy was too exhausted from his overall performance before, a performance which included classics such as "Hoochie Coochie Man", "I Got My Brand On You", "Tiger In Your Tank" and two hectic renditions of "I've Got My Mojo Workin'"). Probably referring to the climate of violence around the festival (partly sparked by the police repression), pianist Spann mourns about what a "gloomy day" it is as he sings goodbye to Newport. And yet, as sad as it sounds, something poignant and truly magical is happening here, as magical as the sudden whisps of wind that can be heard in many parts of this quite "barebones" recording (The show occured in the open, by the way, hence those sounds of wind. This can be seen in the photograph for the cover, for example, even though Waters used a different guitar for the gig than the one he's holding for that picture--and there's even an interesting tidbit to learn about that semi-acoustic guitar on the cover, but that's for you to find out as well...). So, why am I focusing on this tiny moment of the recording? Why is it *magical*? The reason is this: during "Goodbye Newport Blues", Spann indeed laments: "What's gonna happen to my music? What's gonna happen to this song?". What's truly magical here is that the answer to that desperate query came in the many waves of great US and UK acts who would feel inspired by this record (and other ones like that) in the years that followed 1960. Those inspired youths all heard Spann's call, as if carried away by that wind which breezes through the speakers as you're spinning this very record. And they answered it, through the great divides of race, class and even an ocean sometimes. "What's gonna happen to my music? What's gonna happen to this song?" Well, what happened is that it changed the world. Number of albums left to review or just listen to: more than 900, I've temporarily lost count here Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens: approximately a half so far (including this one) Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: a quarter Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): the last quarter
Straight up classic delta blues!
Great live blues from the legendary master. There is a lot of excitement in the crowd, but it takes a few tracks before Waters feels their love...then it all breaks loose.
Klassisk amerikansk blues, live, stemningsfyldt, klaversoloer, mundharmonika
Didn't expect to like this at all but was surprisingly enjoyable. Very impressive vocally, but also very repetitive. 
Quite country, but still very enjoyable.
Really liked the faster songs
blue abt the blues ... not my cup of tea
I love Muddy Waters but this album didn't do it for me.
old blues . noice
I enjoyed this album. Some great tracks
Fun love blues/jazz with an old recording feel.
Very much enjoyed
Iconic sound, but repetitive songs.
Love Blues, this is a great live album.
Hoochie coochie man and I’ve got my mojo working are faves
If you are not REALLY into blues, every song in this album will sound the same very quickly.
Ich mag Blues. Ich find es schade, dass es ein Live Album ist, die Aufnahme ist halt nicht so richtig rund, ist aber auch von 1960. Grundlegend ist es immer dasselbe, so ist Blues halt irgendwo angelegt, das stört mich eher weniger. Gefällt mir an sich gut, die eher weniger gute Aufnahme stört mich aber ein bisschen.
Generally enjoy blues, and this was fine. But rather samey!! I reckon this is music you have to listen to live to get the real experience
Very bluesy. Not bad but too repetitive
Really catchy, raw Blues.
I was very hesitant to listen to this album because the title suggests it is a live album. Sure enough it was one and I just don't subscribe to the idea that these live albums should be on this list. I feel like for any live album the review is basically "this is a live album...they are performing songs from another album, just live". I'll leave my review at that (don't get me wrong, Muddy Waters kicks Who's ass).
Kolejny zywy albumik, nie tylko dlatego, ze jest to nagranie koncertowe, tym razem allah dopomogl, ze publicznosc byla o wiele laskawsza i nie bylo darnia ryja przez cale traki, ale zywy przede wszystkim z powodu muzyki jaka jest grana, bo jest to blues, stylem prosto z czikago, nawet jesli gdzies mi sie obilo o uszy nazwisko muddiego watersa, jest to moje pierwsze spotkanie z jego muzyka, tak jak mozna sie spodziewac po czarnym artyscie, ktorego material zdobyl publike na tyle, zeby byc na liscie 1001 albumow, to cechuje sie ekspresywnym pokazem swych umiejetnosci, a jak to w bluesie, emocje wedruja z jednego konca skali na drugi, od kawalkow o przygnebiajacych dniach i milosci bez przyszlosci, rozwazan na temat sensem lub bezsensem egzystencji, jak na traku goodbye newport blues, ktory zamyka trakliste, do utworow takich jak got my mojo working, w ktorym same instrumenty i ekspresja wokalna wyrazaja wiecej niz tysiac slow, widac skale artystyczna takze po graniu bandy instrumentalnej, na scenie lacznie wystepuje 6 osob, w czym sam muddy jest operatorem gitarkowym, jest to gitara elektryczno akustyczna, stad tez dosc jej jak dla mnie nietypowe brzmienie, do tego dochdzi gitarka elektryczna pana Hare, pianino, harmonijka, basior, drumsy i jest cala ekipa, jak zwykle harpa ustowa zabiera spotlajt w mych uszach, ale tak to jest jesli sie na czyms gra, to slucha sie jak tak mozna robic i bardziej docenia dany dzwiek, wersja spotifajowa zawiera cztery dodatkowe traki, ktore sa studyjnymi wersjami tego co wczesniej mozna bylo uslyszec live, tak jest w przypadku i got my brand on you i soon forgotten oraz tiger in your tank, ale meanest woman jest kawalkiem nieslyszanym wczesniej, wiec dodatkowy material, co do plejkowych pikow, to ze studyjnych dodam branda, natomiast z live i feel so good i o ktorym juz bylo goodbye newport blues, ciekawy album na rozpoczecie przygody z wykonawca, ale jednak troche bardziej barowo studyjnego wydania bym posluchal, bo jednak czuc w niektorych miejsach niedoskonalosci w nagraniu
Enjoyed listening to this. Captures the live energy. Cool to think this is a pioneer of a sound that is now so familiar. +Faves:-Baby Please Don't Go-I've Got My Mojo Working. +Least fave:-Goodbye Newport Blues.
The sounds of Hendrix and Led Zeppelin in prototype form.
good songs with a nice melody and very nice instrumentals.
If I were a big blues fan, this would be it. But I’m not. So take that as you may.
Like it - but the live 'big band' blues sound takes some of the edge out of the music.
A period example of authentic old school soul food blues. Not sure if the live-ness adds any magic to this album.
Production: 12/20 Songwriting: 13/20 Innovation: 10/20 Bangers: 10/20 Emotional response: 14/20 =59 Oooh I really liked it and at 59 it’s only one mark off a 4 but I can’t fuck with the system!!!
The waters are getting muddy and I'm digging it. More enjoyable album than the first this website served up. Though nowhere near as exciting as that track Matt texted us.
Surprised by my response to this. After the last blues based snoozer I was cynical. But surprisingly found myself to enjoy this quite a bit. You can see the roots of rock and hear a few covers. It seems like a show I would’ve enjoyed watching. The up tempo brightness in “I’ve Got My Mojo Workin’” was what put it over the top for me. (And it turned out it was only 9 songs, and the last 4 were bonus track versions of the same songs). 3 or 4.
:) Pleasant to the ears, can allow me to concentrate in what I am doing, not that captivating, but not everything has to be :)
Het is een live album, dus Muddy Waters is hier meteen al in het nadeel. Verder wel aangenaam.
Nice classic blues, but I gravitate towards electric guitar blues.
Fine. A little slow. Im sure its influential but its dry and dated.
Really liked this album…..
It’s very traditional blues. Didn’t listen through all the way. Kinda weird hearing a live concert and being pretty sure that everybody who was there that night has since passed away.
a classic blues album, its ok
Blues. Was a nice listen
Good blues, a bit to slow to be perfect
Solid jazz album. 0RS
I really enjoy good blues music. I should listen to it more. 3.5 stars.
Not bad...hooch coochy etc
Nice feel-good blues, a bit repetitive for my taste
songs are quit simpel but muddy waters performance is sublime
Sounds like a half melted bin lid bravely battling against a ferocious inferno. It doesn't really, but that's what I'm going with. If it was a footballer, it'd be Dwight Yorke.
Could do with listening to it a bit more, but enjoyed it. You can really hear that that whole style really started with him..
if you like it you like it
At Newport 1960 by Muddy Waters (1960) Muddy Waters, the Mississippi blues guitarist/vocalist par excellence, performed this set live at the Newport Jazz Festival in July 1960. “Live” means the listener must filter out crowd commotion, off-beat hand claps, mic stand rumbles, wind noise, and other sundry distractions, but as live albums go, it’s not too bad. On this recording, we are treated primarily to Waters’ blues vocals and ‘compositions’ (primarily his, but also some by Willie Dixon and others—even Langston Hughes gets in on the act). It should be noted that these songs are characterized by significant melodic and lyrical borrowing from traditional Deep South blues. The performance reflects the evolving quality of blues music by 1960. It is both nostalgic and evocative, clearly demonstrating what it was that made such an impression on the next generation of popular music makers. That in itself is one of the most valuable aspects of this album. Muddy Waters’ voice is well suited for the temper of the blues. It has an authenticity that translates the mostly masculine emotions in relatable topical settings. In singing these songs, Muddy Waters occasionally drops the meter, requiring the band to add extra beats (e.g. “I Got My Brand On You” at 1:04), but the ensemble seems so used to this that they're able to work through it flawlessly. That’s what bluesmen do. Also, At Newport 1960 unfortunately hides the guitar in the mix. If you really want to hear a mature Muddy Waters on lead guitar, listen to After The Rain (1969), tracks 3, 5, 6, and 8. (By 1969, of course, he had been surpassed in his blues guitar skills by many of those he had influenced early on, including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Johnny Winter, Duane Allman, and a host of others.) But we have to strain to hear his skills on this album. But if you really, really want to hear the genius of Muddy Waters as a guitarist, you must listen to The Complete Plantation Recordings: The Historic 1941-1942 Library of Congress Field Recordings (Chess Records release, 1993). This album, with its fascinating interviews, would be a much better choice for 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (if it’s not already included). If the mood in the live performance At Newport 1960 seems subdued, it might be related to the fact that Ray Charles’ set the previous evening was disrupted by a drunken riot prompting a police response that included: (1) water hoses, (2) tear gas, and (3) the calling of the National Guard, (4) the Marines and (5) the U.S. Navy Shore Patrol, with 200 arrests and 160 injured. Seriously. This was Newport Rhode Island, folks. Somebody besides Muddy Waters had his mojo workin’. If for no other reason than its historical significance, this record is well worth a listen. 3/5
blucito coquetón, chido aunque algo enfadosón
Don't think i've ever sat and listened to Muddy Waters properly. I like this sort of blues. Live album and it sounded like a good night
Fun and classy!
Also a 3.5
// Favs: – Score: Decent to Strong 3
Me ha aturdido un poco 3. Blues.
Vrolijk jazzalbum. Leuk om eens naar te luisteren
Pretty cool overall, love the blues
Down voted on principle of being a live album
Jazz, though lyrics get a bit too repetitive on some of the songs.
Yup, that’s a jazz album
Easy to listen to, it's over before you know it, might need more listens in the future
3.5 que casi sube a 4 | Un disquito agradable de blues, con excelente guitarra y momentos en los que te pone a tronar los dedos o medio bailar. Sin embargo, creo que puede haber mejores materiales de Muddy Waters, incluso si quieren poner los en vivo.
No suena mal. Y hay clasicazos, pero no es mi estilo y los directos menos aún. La casualidad hace que esta misma mañana estuvieran hablando en la radio de la canción "I've got my mojo working".
I don't think blues is for me but still pretty interesting to listen to.
It was blues, enjoyed the live aspect.
Clear influence but it just hasn’t aged well for me. I just wanted it to move me more.
Fand/finde das Setting erstmal etwas merkwürdig, in my head: Diese tief spelunkige Blues-Legenda auf so ner (kommt mir so vor) etwas edel-feuilletonistischen Studentenveranstaltung wie dem Newport Folk Festival. Ich habe aber auch einfach keine Ahnung davon - weder vom Blues, noch vom NFF. Es läuft also so durch, bringt die Glieder nicht unmittelbar zum Zucken, könnte das aber wahrscheinlich schon wenn ich in der richtigen Stimmung bin (spelunkig!) Ach so, und natürlich wohnen wir hier einer der Geburtsstudnden des Rock'n'Roll bei.
Es ist, was es ist und darin ist es perfekt. Mehr aber auch nicht. 3.3
This is better than the other Muddy Waters I've heard, but the problem with Chicago blues is that it all basically sounds the same. There hasn't been any innovation in the genre since it left the Delta almost a hundred years ago, and that's painfully obvious here.
Not my jam
Some classics on here.
It was enjoyable.
The blues is the blues. I like it, I can't figure out how to love it
Probably great if you like blues but this wasn't for me
Mutna Voda je klasični blues artist koji je cijenjen onako kako mu i doliči. Ovaj live nastup je dobar, glazbu koju inače volim slušati tijekom vrućeg dana u nekoj zabiti, ruralnom području bez ikakve brige, a i života.
I love Muddy Waters, but it's really hard for me to "judge" albums like this. In truth, a live blues album from 1960 doesn't sound much different that a studio blues album (outside of the people clapping in between). And, the performance is solid - but I'm not sure it's special in relation to other Muddy Waters albums, or even other blues musicians. Blues is good. Muddy Waters is good at the blues. Good job.
I'm not a big blues fan but I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It's repetitive for me as, again, not a big blues fan, but it was solid.
not my genre but some hit of jazz punk like blurt will fit in bruh
I have not heard this yet, looking forward to it. Upon first listen it’s a pretty good recording for a live show from 1960. This obviously influenced all of the British invasion bands, more than half the songs have been covered by the Stones, Zepplin, The Who, etc. and while it’s not terrible, It’s not my cup of tea.
I expected this to be better than it was. Have heard that Muddy Waters is a legend and pioneer with wide reaching musical influence. Thought I would be blown away. Not bad, but not incredible either.
blues de primeira. Got my mojo working
First few songs were slappers
This was fine, pleasant enough to listen to (although I didn't think there was any need for two parts to the Mojo song), but not spectacular. Tiger in Your Tank and Soon Forgotten are the highlights. 3/5.
Pretty sound stuff, just didn't fit the mood of the day when listening to it. Hard to dislike though.
Decent, but I'm getting a bit bored of blues/folk live albums.
It's fine as far as old school blues goes.
A few well-known and now classic tracks covered by many others. However, it doesn't have the excitement of the BB King live concert that was also showcased here a few weeks ago. Low 3.
The variety of this album is staggering. The leaps of one song being psy-trance to the next being Death Metal to a smooth synthwave number do an electroclash ditty. Muddy Waters does it all here. Not really. Just a great live blues set. I mean, what else would it be? Best Tracks: I Got My Brand On You; Baby, Please Don't Go; I've Got My Mojo Working
Always got time for a little Muddy Waters. I can't say I've ever heard a live show where they play the same song back-to-back, though. Granted, 'I've Got My Mojo Working' is a tune but it stills seems a little unnecessary.
A delightful bluesy treat
Le nouveau single proposé par le groupe ROP ne me convient toujours pas. Les sonorités, non sans rappeller celles des Frero Delavega, ne font que respecter les codes de la musique de radio. Les multiples "la première fois que tu l'as entendu, c'était sur Skyrock" ne sont vraiment pas nécessaires, et gâchent un peu plus une musique déjà dénuée d'intérêt. Une copie à revoir.
Un album enregistré à l'époque du paléolithique qui fait en effet son travail mais sans grande surprise, Muddy Waters se contentant d'enfiler des bottes et de traverser un lac boueux d'un bout à l'autre. La façon d'aborder la musique a depuis heureusement bien évolué.
Not as good as the other one.
Good stuff. Solid live album.
Great blues/jazz leadoff this week. Muddy Waters certainly the best of the era
It was pleasant enough but I don't think I could distinguish it from any other blues
All a bit samey
It was great to hear some live blues on here. You can really see the influence Muddy Waters had on generations of musicians!
Live album, I didn't have any strong opinions about it.
Ik wil al een tijd een muziekreis maken door Amerika. Door dit album krijg ik daar weer extra zin in.
jazz club niicccceeee
I like to think I like the Blues but this was a bit hit and miss for me. This chart seems to lean heavily on LIVE albums as being a cut above studio albums (especially from the 60's) but I just don't agree with that viewpoint. The tracks are pretty well known enough but whether it's the live performance aspect there seems to be a lack of raw emotion from Muddy. He seems to almost rush through the whole concert so he can go home (which would be understandable since there was a riot the night before). The tracks veer from slower numbers to more dancey tunes and he ends up singing the same song twice near the end. The last track is the best- and that's not even Muddy because he'd ducked out at that point. Having said all that it's still a great album from one of the greatest.
I really liked this and can see why Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, and Keith Richards did, too.
Midt på treet. Gøy, men kommer ikkje til å høre på det igjen.
1960. Key Songs: Tiger In Your Tank, Got My Mojo Working
I'm not really feeling any of the tunes except for Tiger In Your Tank.
Unspektakulär! Musikalisch passiert nicht viel. Die Texte sind auch ziemlich monoton und alles andere als inspirierend. Wahrscheinlich eine Frage der Zeit. Aber es gibt auch schlimmeres.
live jazz - 2.1
Muddy Waters: Self Proclaimed Coochie Man
2.5 - essential blues right here. band is so tight, it's amazing. hoochie coochie man is the standout for me.
Blues.. Should be cross-linked in the dictionary under 'Repitition'. I get that he is doing a live performance and there are people listening, ready to throw stuff in case he sucks. But that doesn't make it more enjoyable. At first I thought he might be a bit slow in the head, or maybe that he's stuttering. But that just seems to be his way of singing? Really couldn't get into it. A few times he just stopped singing and apparently shook his head like a rabid animal making strange noises. And when he noticed the audience responded to one of his songs more than before, he just repeated it - that felt so cheap. But who am I to judge? The audience seemed to like it, so maybe the perception of music shifted over the decades. Two stars, didn't really care for it.
Classic rock and roll. Historically important, I'm sure, but not especially entertaining to my ears.
Hard Again is easily a better album from Muddy Waters
The Best of mundo waters
Too much mojo for me
The early 60s seems like a bizarre time. A young, liberal JFK is elected and living the glamorous, innocent Camelot life. The most popular song was "Theme From A Summer Place" an orchestral instrumental that sounds like a housewife on valium walking to Mervins. In this context Muddy At Newport must've sounded like raucous satan worship. In 2021, not so much, with one exception - there's a moment about 1 minute in to "Feel So Good" where people in the crowd start yelling and for a moment you can hear the energy in the room and feel how it felt to be there live 80 years ago. I think I want live blues to feel like the scene in Black Snake Moan where Samuel L Jackson is doing that Mississippi hill country blues thing and beat up Christina Ricci is sexy dancing with all the men and women at the juke joint. But instead this was At Newport. C-
Our second back-to-back artist! I appreciate the authenticity of this as a live album, but I like the other one better
ikke for meg
Globalement on se fait chier. I've got my mojo working est à sauver et encore ? (bonnes percussions) 2
Not a fan of the blues
It was okay.
Possibly revolutionary in its day, nowadays sounds vulgar, a generic blues album.
Blues just isn’t my bag.
good enough bg music but eh.. nothing stood out to me.
While it warmed dusty parts of my road trip , I couldn’t get past the very repetitive trill on the harmonica which was always the same note through the whole album
Ehhh... heard better live albums.
Вне текста и контекста это невозможно оценить
Sounds like I’d expect a 1960 live album to sound
This Muddy Waters album was recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island on July 3rd 1960. Muddy Waters was one of the most popular blues artists of the 1950s, so it's no surprise his band was playing at this festival. However this day of the festival was almost cancelled after a riot the night before, but the promoter convinced the city council to let it continue. Because of this decision, we now have a piece of blues history recorded live! The blues music is the older Chicago style, but that's what makes it so unique. It sounds like Muddy Waters was performing in a cool, relaxed way, when there are reports that the audience absolutely loved his music and were all dancing. The recording was well done too, since we can hear all the individual instruments, as well as the powerful baritone voice of Muddy Waters. If you are a fan of blues music, then this is one album you can't miss!
It’s okay, not my preferred music.
Hlustaði á nokkur lög. Allt í lagi
Diciamo che il blues non è che mi faccia impazzire... Mi sembra tutte noiose/lamentose uguali. Ma non penso siano brutte, nel senso, capisco che fa quel che fa bene, solo che non fa tanto per me.
Nothing wrong with this. Can see why it is included, influence felt everywhere. Didn't love it though.
Not my type of music, says the same things over and over again with mediocre instrumental
Ik ben niet zo'n fan van live muziek, en ook niet zo van jazz. De liedjes zelf zijn wel leuk, maar soms ook wel erg cliche. **
Met enige tegenzin toch netjes helemaal geluisterd. En ik kan niet zeggen dat ik er heel enthousiast van word.
Best aardig, maar ben gewoon niet zo'n blues man.
Shite. I wish I was deaf
Pace and swing not enjoyable Tiger in your tank is good Not a fan of this
No quiero escuchar esto
