More Info:This legendary 1968 LP (recorded for Chess's Cadet Concept imprint) was considered controversial upon it's release, due to producer Marshall Chess's decision to fuse Muddy's classic blues with late '60s psychedelic rock. This wildly experimental LP inspired catcalls from purists, but became Muddy's biggest hit album in the '60s. The CD debut of this hotly requested classic features digital remastering, new liner notes and a photo-filled booklet that was originally included in only the first 1,000 LPs sold.
''Electric Mud'' is the third studio album by Muddy Waters. Released in 1968, it is a concept album which imagines Muddy Waters as a psychedelic musician. Producer Marshall Chess suggested that Muddy Waters record experimental, psychedelic blues tracks with members of Rotary Connection in an attempt to revive the blues singer's career.
The album peaked at #127 on the ''Billboard'' Pop Albums chart. It was controversial for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements, but was influential on psychedelic rock bands of the era. - Wikipedia
