  • Waters Muddy - Elevate Me Mama (CD)

    18,00

    Mississippi born singer-guitarist Muddy Waters was much more than an influential blues man, he was an artistic epicenter, a rare, luminous astral body around whom it seemed, at certain points, the entire post-war blues galaxy was centered. It would not be an exaggeration to say that Muddy represented the celestial pole of the blues very center, a point of connection between the music’s symbolic heaven and earth, one through which flowed a surging force so powerful it not only affected how musicians performed, it reached into the very social-cultural fabric of the nation, and eventually the world. Bound together by a rare symmetry of creative elements, he also ultimately represents a uniting force that, through his pervasive influence on rock & roll’s practitioners, brought black and white together at time of profound division. Muddy Waters changed everything. He proposed a modern blues reality so tangibly potent and loaded with soul deep appeal that it was like a portal to an undreamed of realm, and all who entered therein were made a gift of Muddy’s singular philosophical rhythms and truth. As a ringmaster for rock & roll – a Godfather who not only facilitated but also participated by leading Chuck Berry to the recording studio, inspiring and touring with the Rolling Stones – he is completely unique all over again.

  • Little Walter - Boom Boom (LP)

    23,00

    Blues harmonica innovator Little Walter was a critically important creative force. Between his brilliant, combustible musicality, equally incendiary temperament, penchant for hard living, and tragic death at 37, he exerted an influence so pervasive and profound that, much like his bandstand boss Muddy Waters, he has assumed an almost mythological stature in blues hierarchy. As the first musician ever to bring the microphone right up to the harp, cupped within his hands, Little Walter was revolutionary. Prior to that breakthrough, the microphone was almost never removed from its stand; it was static, an immobile object which the performer catered to, but Little Walter completely exploded that limitation. The simple physical act alone was audacious, but Walter took it the full route, also experimenting with squeezing the most out of an amplifier, cranking it all the way up and adding distortion, introducing wild new sonic dimensions for the instrument. His development and use of these techniques were nothing short of revelatory and profoundly enhanced and expanded the entire genres impact and range. Walter’s mixture of sensitivity and technical innovation was unbeatable. His innate musicality was intimate, intense, and deeply expressive. He was able to coax an unprecedented, spectrum spanning variety of tones out of his harmonica, from explosive peaks to low, wounded subtleties. Little Walter’s mastery of both a loose, relaxed feel and dynamic musicality made for some of the finest blues records of the post war era, both his own solo sides and the trove of classic collaborations he undertook with Muddy Waters.
