Muddy, Muddy and all Muddy! This 3-disk compilation includes pretty much all of the best-known works of this seminal bluesman. If you like Muddy, then buy this set or get someone to buy it for you for Christmas. The only drawback is you may duplicate some stuff in your collection.

This collection even includes some previously unreleased stuff, as well as some things that might surprise you if you're not a blues-head (did you know that "Whole Lotta Love" is a cover of a Muddy Waters tune?).

The only drawback: - it ends at 1972, so you miss some of his later recordings, such as the album "Hard Again". But you should buy "Hard Again" anyway, so that's actually a plus -- no duplication!
