Muddy Waters - Electric Mud [LP] (black vinyl, four-panel foldout poster, gatefold)
GATEFOLD WITH FOUR PANEL FOLDOUT POSTER!
The album, which Chess originally released in 1968 has not seen a legitimate domestic vinyl release since 2002, despite its enormous influence on generations of blues rockers. It features members of Rotary Connection as Muddy's backing band and was very controversial upon its release for its fusion of electric blues with psychedelic elements. The album is now recognized as a forward-thinking classic, sampled extensively by artists like The Black Keys and Gorillaz.
The deluxe version of the reissue will come in "Chess-nut Brown" vinyl, with a hand screen-printed black matte jacket with silver type (a recreation of the rare, first pressing variant), a 2-panel foldout poster, and a reproduction of the original "eight pager" booklet. The standard edition will come in black vinyl, with a gatefold vinyl jacket in its original black-on-white color scheme, and a four-panel foldout poster.
