ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"New Mannish Boys" is the first Blues Hounds release of 2019, & fully captures the history of Muddy Waters & the Urban Blues, from Muddy's birthplace & beginnings, up through his move from the Mississippi Delta to Chicago, where he reinvented the Blues in the current standard "Chicago style" format.
The song is meant to pay homage to Muddy in thanks for this GREAT musical art form!

The lyrics & music were written by Harold Stewart specifically to be sung by himself & Muddy's youngest son, Joseph 'Mojo' Morganfield about his father & the past, present, & future of the Blues!

The song has an earthy, organic, driving groove that propels the song forward through lyrics that are steeped in historical references to Muddy's beginnings, common phrases in Muddy's songs, & instrument solos that are reminiscent of Otis Spann's piano & Muddy's guitar work, without just being mere direct copies.
This is meant to illustrate the ongoing transformation of the Blues in the modern generation, without losing touch with the magic that makes the Blues such a satisfying art form to listen to over & over again in the first place.

"New Mannish Boys", in addition to being a reference to a very famous Muddy Waters song, also happens to be the name of Joseph "Mojo" Morganifield's Blues band (The Mannish Boyz), & was titled as such by Harold so that Mojo's band could also play it live as a direct reflection of the band itself, whose members include the very last guitarist to have actually played in the Muddy Waters' band itself, Rick Kreher.

Take a listen, & get ready to shuffle your feet & shake your hips to this brand new incarnation of the Blues in honor of the man who started it all, the late, great, Muddy Waters!!!
