Had some hard days

Muddy Waters at his second commercial recording session (unissued at the time) trying on the Lester Melrose model for size. It would soon be discarded for Muddy’s own tougher and at once more modern and more archaic style, a real synthesis of the delta country blues of his mentors and the big city blues of his new home town of Chicago. Next stop: Aristocrat.

Hard Day Blues – McKinley Morganfield – 1946
