The late ’60s were a mixed bag for Muddy Waters. A left-turn into psychedelia with his 1968 album, ‘Electric Mud’, had alienated his base. Though it elicited a short-lived sales spree and an enthusiasm among youth culture across the pond in England, Waters didn’t love the feeling that he’d sold out, that he’d abandoned the very sound he’d made popular. In 1969, Waters needed to pivot, and away from the longhairs. He made ‘Fathers and Sons’.
