Song of the Week #9 – Still a Fool (Muddy Waters)

Happy birthday <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muddy_Waters”>Muddy Waters</a>! April Fool’s Day just passed and no joke, here’s one of my favorite  tunes of his, Still a Fool. This song was recorded way back in 1951 and is one of many blues songs based musically off Catfish Blues originally recorded by <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Petway”>Robert Petway</a> ten years earlier. Landman hipped me to this song years ago, before I really dug into Muddy’s earlier catalog. From that point, I found that I had a much greater appreciation for Muddy’s late 40’s and early 50’s stuff than his later, better known catalog. –Heatwave
