Listening to ‘mud’

Posted on Updated on

I went searching for a song by the Mud City Manglers and ended up spending the rest of the afternoon listening only to songs which contain the word ‘mud’ in them somewhere. Here are some highlights from the afternoon:

Muddy Waters – I Got My Mojo Working, from Fathers & Sons (1972). The harp playing on this track is exemplary:

Nirvana – Negative Creep, from From The Muddy Banks of the Wishkah (1996). This track was recorded by Andy Wallace at the Paramount Theatre here in Seattle on October 31, 1991.

Muddy Waters – Forty Days & Forty Nights, originally released on his seminal 1965 recording on the Chess label The Real Folk Blues.
