I really like the (relatively) new Muddy collection
called "Muddy Waters - His Best: 1947 to 1955" put
out by Chess. More or less follows Muddy early
recordings, up to his peak. Absolutely great
Walters playing as well... it was like these guys
were a single musician, the way they worked
together. Here's the song lineup:

1. I Can't Be Satisfied
2. I Feel Like Going Home
3. Train Fare Blues
4. Rollin' and Tumblin', Pt. 1
5. Rolling Stone
6. Louisiana Blues        
7. Long Distance Call        
8. Honey Bee        
9. She Moves Me        
10. Still a Fool        
11. Standing Around Crying        
12. Baby Please Don't Go        
13. I Want You to Love Me        
14. (I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man        
15. I Just Want to Make Love to You        
16. I'm Ready        
17. Young Fashioned Ways        
18. Mannish Boy        
19. Sugar Sweet        
20. Trouble No More  

Great stuff!
