After The Rain
The second of two electric-blues albums released on Chess Records and Cadet Concept imprint in the late 60s, Muddy Waters' After the Rain has achieved cult-like status amongst blues fans in the years since his death in 1983. After taking a backlash from critics with first attempt at adopting psychedelic influences on Electric Mud, Muddy made adjustments for the follow-up, despite keeping a majority of the same session players. This time, he toned down the psychedelic elements and put them in balance with his classic Chicago blues sound, and the results yield some vintage tracks that glow with fuzzy guitars and bass: "I Am the Blues," "Ramblin' Mind," "Bottom of the Sea," and "Blues Trouble." After being out of print for years, Get On Down is proud to present this rare classic from Muddy Waters pulled from the original masters and presented in an attractive digi-pack.
