Muddy Waters’ presence was that of a king, and his blues sounded simple, but it was so deeply rooted in the traditions of the Mississippi Delta that other singers and guitarists found it almost impossible to imitate it convincingly. On Sings “Big Bill”, Waters’ electric recasting of Big Bill Broonzy’s usually acoustic numbers is incredibly effective. The guitar work is earthy and throbbing, never superfluous.
