Hard Again features Muddy Waters’ trademark blues sound: rugged, raw and full of energy.
Artist: Muddy Waters
Label: Music On Vinyl
In 1976 the Chicago based blues artist Muddy Waters started recording his album Hard Again. It is the first album that was produced by Johnny Winter. Its official release date is set in 1977. Waters opens up the album with the one song that cemented Muddy’s place in Rock and Roll heaven: “Mannish Boy”, on which Winter’s ecstatic ‘Yeah!’s can be heard on.
The album was very well received and to this day, is seen as one of Waters’ best efforts. Hard Again peaked at #143 on the Billboard 200, which was his first chart appearance since Fathers and Sons in 1969. It also won the Grammy Award for Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording. Hard Again features Muddy Waters’ hits “Mannish Boy”, “I Want To Be Loved” and “I Can’t Be Satisfied”. The album celebrates its 45th anniversary in 2022 and is therefore available as a 45th anniversary edition of 2500 individually numbered copies on solid blue coloured vinyl.
