THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 21-22, 2017 According to JD Nash, writer for American Scene Magazine web site, the late great Muddy Water’s debut album released April of 1958 will be re-released on November 10th of this year. The Best of Muddy Waters will be in its original form meaning it will be on vinyl, original mono, and the musicians on the album include Willie Dixon, Ernest Big Crawford, Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, Jimmy Rogers, Fred Below, Otis Span, Elgin Evans and Leonard Chess.  Leonard and Phil Chess owned a little upstart record company in 1958 called Chess Records.  This was the album that was the start of the British invasion that launched rockers like The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, John Mayall and many others.  This album was the launch of The Modern Blues…….I mentioned Leonard Chess is listed as one of the musicians on the album…That’s because Leonard did not like how the bass drum sounded on either the song Rollin Stone or She Moves Me, I forgot which one, that he decided he would play the bass drum himself.  If you hear the song, you can definitely tell that it’s Leonard Chess…Terrible, but it’s on the album…November 10th is the date of the release, and Geffin is releasing it, and it will also be available for download and streaming.  This is a first because there was no downloading and streaming in 1958…….We have a link to the article on the BlueNews Page at BluesTimeInTheCity.com… https://www.americanbluesscene.com/2017/10/muddy-waters-debut-album-reissued/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM Fans of Blues Guitarist Tinsley Ellis will be glad to know that Tinsley is returning to Alligator Records in Chicago.  He’s working on a new BCD entitled Winning Hand that is set for release January 2018 Congratulations are in order for my man Tinsley…..Tinsley is an Emory University Grad and is based in Atlanta Ga….
