A rare find... Muddy Waters "Goin' Way Back"

This record is an absolute gem. It was a live recording from 1967 while Muddy and his blues band were in Montreal touring.

The catch is, this fully acoustic session was recorded on the front porch of the house where the band was resting on the tour.

It has famous pianist Otis Spann playing guitar as well, which is something no one knew he could do.

The result is a haunting tribute to the old Mississippi Delta blues of the 30's and 40's.

Recorded on a reel-to-reel player, don't expect good quality... but the content of the record highly overshadows the quality of sound.

Get this. Now.
