Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Hoochie Coochie Man" - Rated 226/500!
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the July 2010 Issue of Stereophile! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

For the middle album of his Johnny Winter-produced late-'70s music trilogy, blues giant Muddy Waters brought a new spirit to some familiar material. Starting with members of Waters' touring band – Pinetop Perkins, Bob Margolin, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith – Winter added underrated guitarist (and longtime Waters foil) Jimmy Rogers and extraordinary harp player Big Walter Horton to the mix. The songs recorded for I'm Ready offer a mix of new material and vintage hit singles like the title cut, the mid-'60s jewel Screamin' and Cryin', or the Willie Dixon-penned I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man.

For new listeners trying to get a feel of what the blues is all about, I'm Ready is the perfect place to start. Once you experience a taste of Muddy Waters, you'll be ready for more.

"Judging by the gatefold black and white photo,everyone had a great time making the album. You’ll have as good a time listening. The sound is quite three-dimensional, with a pronounced but pleasant presence region peak that ads a needed rough edge to the proceedings. The stage is relatively compact and very coherent with plenty of old fashioned mike leakage that helps to create a “live” sound in an era of isolation booth multi-track mono productions. Producer Winter and engineer Still knew the sound they were going for and they got it!" - Michael Fremer,, Music 8/10, Sound 8/10

"Waters tested this ["Hoochie Coochie Man"] out at the Chicago blues club Zanzibar. Dixon gave him some advice: 'Well, just get a little rhythm pattern,' he said. 'Do the same thing over again, y'know.' Waters cut it a couple of weeks later, with Dixon on bass." - Rolling Stone
