On this episode of Blues Unlimited, we take a look at some artists whose names are pretty much synonymous with bringing modern, electric and amplified blues to the world at large in a somewhat unique setting – alone and acoustic, without the benefits of electricity. From classic cuts off of "Muddy Waters Folk Singer," to live recordings of Eddie Boyd, Billy Boy Arnold and Little Johnny Jones, to Howlin' Wolf, introspectively playing acoustic guitar and singing to himself – this episode of Blues Unlimited turns off the electricity to shed a new — and somewhat illuminating — light on some of our favorite postwar blues artists.
Pictured: Now considered a classic, “Muddy Waters Folk Singer,” issued 1964, attempted to capitalize on the exploding folk music market of the 1960s.
