Reissue of Muddy Waters' 1977 triumph, with a bonus track.

A review:
"The importance of Muddy Waters' 1977 album Hard Again cannot be overstated, and its place as a near universal favorite in the Muddy Waters catalogue is no mistake. Recorded in the last decade of his life, Hard Again was the first studio collaboration between Waters and guitarist Johnny Winter, who acted as producer on his last four recordings -- the others are I'm Ready, King Bee, and Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live -- for Blue Sky, a Columbia subsidiary. The true revelation here is Waters, whose vigour and fire are renewed; he's hungry for the music and completely in possession of his prowess and power as the true King of the Blues. At 62, Waters was revving up for one final go and Winter recorded him like the champ he was. The Muddy Waters Blues Band was one of the crack outfits on the scene at the time and included guitarist Bob Margolin, pianist Pinetop Perkins, and drummer Willie "Big Eyes" Smith were on this session. Winter was on board playing guitar in addition to producing, and Waters asked James Cotton to play harp on the session and he brought his bassist Charles Calmese for the date. The twin-guitar attack featured here is one of the most complementary and symbiotic ever recorded. According to Margolin's amazingly warm and informative anecdotal liner notes (he deserves a Grammy for them), Waters never picked up his guitar during these sessions. It hardly matters, from the opening roar of "Mannish Boy," with shouts and hollers throughout, with incendiary guitars to the old-style Delta blues of "I Can't Be Satisfied," with a killer National steel solo by Winter to Cotton's screeching intro to "The Blues had a Baby," to the moaning closer "Little Girl," Hard Again is rock solid. Its live feel (recorded in three days from pre-production to final session) heralds back to the Chess days, its scary fine cooperative musicianship and intimate, good time vibe have rarely been replicated since that time - and never on a major label. The expanded reissue includes one bonus track, an outtake called "Walking Through the Park," that could have been part of the original album without a problem - the other outtake ended up on King Bee. Margolin's notes state that while the album has been remastered, it was not remixed because its sound holds up. He's dead-on. This has the feel of an old-time blues record and the listener can hear - even on CD - the sound of the wood room it was recorded in as well as the camaraderie of the players. Hard Again showcased Waters as a blues lion, and in its grooves lies all the evidence for the legend he remains." Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
