Electric Mud is the fifth studio album by Muddy Waters, with members of Rotary Connection serving as his backing band. Released in 1968, it imagines Muddy Waters as a psychedelic musician. The album peaked at number 127 on Billboard 200 album chart. It was controversial for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements.

This album marks what could probably be considered the nadir of Muddy Waters' career, although at the time it did sell somewhere between 200,000 and 250,000 copies, a lot for Waters in those days. By 1968, Waters was no longer reaching black audiences, who were mostly listening to soul music by that time, and he also wasn't selling records to more than a relatively small cult of white blues enthusiasts. Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Cream were selling millions of records each using licks and sometimes songs learned from Waters

Electric Mud Muddy Waters. In 1968, eager to appeal to psychedelic rock fans, Chess Records urged Muddy Waters to expand his audience by making a heavy rock record. Backed by members of the Chicago soul-rock band Rotary Connection, Muddy turned out an album full of crunching, distortion-soaked riffs and big, booming beats. Not only did it achieve its aim in boosting Muddy's profile, it proved influential to a new generation of musicians

Honestly I can't disagree more with the haters of this album. I think this is a jamming album with some cool remakes of Muddy's signature songs like "Let's Spend the Night Together" and "I Just Wanna Make Love to You". Apparently it's not for everybody especially Blues purist's but fans should give it a shot and decide for themselves. Muddy is still Muddy
I bought this album upon its release at the local Rexall Drugs. I was fourteen and didn't know Muddy Waters from Love That Dirty Water. I was attracted to the album's name and cover (mine is black with whiter lettering). Not knowing who or what Muddy was or did, I had an open mind when I first slapped the vinyl on my Philco record player. It consumed my listening for the next few weeks, as my record collection was rather slim at the time. To this day, it remains one of my favorite Muddy albums. I rank it right up there with the three recordings Muddy did with Johnny Winters in the late '70s/early '80s.
People who dislike this album are just boring. They'll complain that Chess tried to "make Muddy sell out" or some other load of crap, but they wouldn't dream of saying the same thing about Led Zepplin I, or Electric Ladyland (both great albums, both firmly in the same style that Electric Mud is going for). The fact is, this is Muddy showing the kids how to do it. Muddy invented the stuff that The Experience, Zep, and Cream were doing at the time. The British took the old blues, amped it up, and served it back to America. On Electric Mud, one of the originators of Chicago's electric blues returns that serve with a slice of apple pie. The British totally got this album (and the Howlin' Wolf Album, too). Blues "purists" just can't see past their own bias of rock and roll to get what's going on here.
I'll never undestand the horrible reviews this album have. I think most of the critics were blues purists who couldn't stand a fusion album from one of the most legendary blues musicians of all time. In my opinion, this is a magnificent album with a great psychedelic blues-rock sound.
Album is great. Just like's Howlin' Wolf electric 1969 album.
After years of reading about this album, (& being a Muddy Waters fan far longer than that), I finally picked it up recently & gave it a few listens.As someone who's between a blues "purist", & a music fanatic with extremely eclectic tastes & interests, I was able to approach this album with a pretty open mind, (& ears). It's interesting to say the least, but not all that successful stylistically. Why? Because in addition to not really being a Muddy Waters album, it's really not all that innovative compared to something like "Electric Ladyland" "Forever Changes" or "Disraeli Gears", instead being a poorly thought out mishmash of trying to clumsily force Muddy's sound into a loud & psychedelic drenched, fuzz toned mess. The backing musicians & Muddy never mesh, nor do they sound like their trying to, & therein lies the rub; this album simply doesn't do Muddy service. I have no issue with Chess attempting to update Muddy's sound at that time, & if it had been better thought out & done then, with care & perceptive of what would help Muddy sound current, instead of what feels & sounds like a quickie attempt by Chess to ride on the coattails of the then popular psychedelic rock sound, then we might have got something great. As it stands though, this is merely ok at best, & terribly misguided at worst.A thought here; what if instead of this, Chess had waited a coupe of years & perhaps tried hooking Muddy up with Funkadelic? Now, that might have worked a lot better.
No es su mejor disco, pero es otra forma de hacer música, tiene cosas interesantes. esta bien y no le doy mas vueltas al asunto.
I picked this up on vinyl only because it was available. Trying to make Muddy something he isn't was not a good idea. This is only for people who want to try and own everything by Muddy Waters. Definitely not a high priority to own.
