Folk Singer is a heralded recording from the 'King of the Delta Blues' - equally for its sonic qualities as for its content. Originally released on Chess in 1964, this title has repeatedly surfaced on audiophile's top twenty lists for its superior sound, rare for most true pre-80s blues recordings.

Folk Singer represents a departure from the electric 'urban' blues sound that Muddy Waters pioneered. It is an all-acoustic collection of recordings that illustrates his deep-rooted rural blues influences, reminiscent of the sides he made nearly twenty-five years prior in Mississippi. This release features McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters) on vocals and guitar, supported by the great Buddy Guy on guitar, blues legend Willie Dixon on bass and Clifton James on occasional drums.

All tracks recorded at Ter Mar Recording Studios, Chicago, IL, September 1963.

"Worried that the folk-music fad was luring listeners away from the blues, Chess Records directed Waters to record with acoustic instruments. These sessions - by Waters, Willie Dixon and a young Buddy Guy - went astonishingly well, and this pioneering "unplugged" set is beloved by blues and folk fans alike." -
