Schoolkids Records (Retail & Label)

By 1960, MUDDY WATERS had been the acknowledged "King Of Chicago Blues" for some ten years, having built up a loyal audience and registering a string of hits. However his traditional market had been working class and blue collar African Americans, who generally didn't buy albums. Consequently, in an endeavour to expand his audience by crossing him over to the white market, his record company, Chess, issued two LPs by Muddy during 1960. One was "Muddy Waters Sings Big Bill", a tribute to the late Big Bill Broonzy, which were his first stereo recordings. The second was "Muddy Waters At Newport, 1960", recorded live during his highly acclaimed set at the Newport Jazz Festival that year. Both are paired up on this unique compilation, which also features five bonus cuts, being live recordings from the Newport gig.
