The son of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters, Mud Morganfield and Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson come together for this tribute release. For Pops (A Tribute to Muddy Waters) represents some of Mud’s favorite songs from his father including the iconic “I Just Want to Make Love to You” plus “Blow Wind Blow” and “Just to Be With You.” When you hear Mud belt out his version of the classic “My Dog Can’t Bark” it’s clear that the apple truly doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Kim Wilson lives up to his reputation as the finest purveyor of the “Little Walter harmonica style” by laying down
some of his best work to date.
For Pops only scratches the surface of the impressive catalog left by the master bluesman, but this collection is a must for blues fans everywhere. We’re certain pops is proud of his boy.
Check out Mud’s other Severn title, Son of the Seventh Son as well as Kim’s work with the T-Birds on On the Verge.
