Electric Mud was an album release by Muddy Waters in 1968. It was an attempt by producer Marshall Chess to expand Muddy Waters audience into the rock world. In 1968, pop and rock were in a very interesting place. Psychedelic culture and music were mainstream.
This album is a brilliant fusion of blues and psychedelic rock. Unfortunately, Blues purists can’t see the brilliance in this album. In my opinion though, if someone had the idea to fuse blues and modern day rock music, it wouldn’t work. But back in 1968, when rock was psychedelic and Jimi Hendrix was popular, fusing blues and rock worked amazingly!
Give the album a listen to. It is something different that goes beyond the blues. Muddy Waters himself hated this album. But by 1968, Muddy was already 55 years old. When you’ve been a traditional blues musician your whole life, by the time you’re 55 you will most likely have a slight disconnect from rock and pop music. If you are a fan of 1960’s rock, I can guarantee you will love this album.
