"Folk Singer" by Muddy Waters is a historic recording. Muddy has a historic band behind him with Buddy Guy on Guitar, Otis Spann on Piano, and Willie Dixon on Bass. Add the lineup other guitars, drummers and a harmonica player. All these famous blues artists behind a man so respected as a leader among the blues artists. Muddy has a recording similar to this called "Muddy Waters at Newport". It too is a classic album.
