I really think the place to start with Muddy Waters is the excellent Chess box set. Like a lot of his fellow bluesmen, Muddy Waters weathered the many musical changes of the 60s and even if his creativity waned, he was lionized by younger musicians, especially the wave of British bands. In the late 60s, he made, largely at the urging of Marshall Chess, the unsuccessful blues/psychedelic fusion "Electric Mud." 1969's "Fathers and Sons" finds him backed by a crack team of younger musicians, including Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield, Sam Lay (all members of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band), former MG bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, and, on one track, Band of Gypsies drummer Buddy Miles. This reissue includes the original album, unreleased tracks from the sessions, and live recordings, which are the highlight. The original album is solid, but I don't think it's as strong as his earlier Chess material.
