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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

And here it is one of the finest Blues artists. Every song is a banger music to dance and to listen.

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.

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.

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'.

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

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.

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 🌟

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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).

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.

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

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!)

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 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.

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.

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-

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!

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.

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.
