AllMusic Review by

When Muddy Waters took his country blues north to Chicago, outfitted it with electric guitars, drums, bass, and roaring harmonicas, he single-handedly put the Chicago blues (and electric blues in general) on the map. This four-disc set collects the best of Waters' impressive and lengthy catalog, including classic versions of "Got My Mojo Working," "I Can't Be Satisfied," "Mannish Boy," "Honey Bee," "(I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man," and many, many others. Without Muddy Waters, modern and contemporary blues would still be struggling to get off its feet.
