  • Description
Blues At The Crossroads 2 pays tribute to the two legends, McKinley “Muddy Waters” Morganfield (1913-83), Muddy and Chester Arthur “Howlin’ Wolf” Burnett (1910-76). Both worthy of the title “father of modern Chicago Blues”, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf have inspired a generation of musicians, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, John Mayall, Eric Clapton and others who brought about the 1960s British blues explosion. Though friends, Muddy & The Wolf were rivals for the top slot, and this spurred on both to top the other and create classics of the genre, including “Spoonful”, “Mannish Boy”, “Rolling Stone”, and “Smokestack Lightning”. The Fabulous Thunderbirds featuring Kim Wilson join Blues At The Crossroads 2 as the core band backing modern blues greats James Cotton, Jody Williams, and “Steady Rollin” Bob Margolin.
