The son of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters, Mud Morganfield and Fabulous Thunderbird front man Kim Wilson come together for this tribute release, packaged in Digipak format. For Pops (A Tribute To Muddy Waters) represents some of Mud’s favorite songs from his father including the iconic I Just Want to Make Love to You plus Blow Wind Blow and Just to Be With You. When you hear Mud belt out his version of the classic My Dog Can’t Bark it’s clear that the apple truly doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kim Wilson lives up to his reputation as the finest purveyor of the ‘Little Walter’ harmonica style by laying down some of his best work to date. Backing them is the crack team of Billy Flynn and Rusty Zinn (guitars), Barrelhouse Chuck (Piano), Steve Gomes (bass) and Robb Stupka (drums). For Pops only scratches the surface of the impressive catalog left by the master bluesman, but this collection is a must for Blues fans everywhere. We’re certain ‘Pops’ is proud of his boy.

Wonderful tribute for Muddy Waters’ 100th birthday For some reason I was a bit dubious about this record featuring Muddy Waters’ son Mud Morganfield backed by harmonica ace Kim Wilson and assorted vastly experienced blues session men recorded in a studio in Annapolis, Maryland (!?!) I needn’t have worried Mud’s vocals sound very much like his dad’s (without being an impersonation), you won’t hear better blues harmonica this year (or any other year) than Kim’s, the band are first class and although the studio doesn’t sound like Chess’s 2120 South Michigan Avenue this is still a fine sounding record.For me the Muddy Waters band was the high point of Chicago blues and it was amazing that although the band’s personnel changed many times over the years the standard of the music always remained very high, with the emphasis on wonderful ensemble playing. That same focus on ensemble playing is heard here, with Mud and Kim slightly to the fore, but this isn’t a a recreation of those classic Waters’ Chess sides rather a tribute in…
