Mud Morganfield CD Release Party & WGN Performance – March 2012

On March 31st, Mud Morganfield held the CD release party for Son Of The Seventh Son, his first national release just out the week before on Severn Records. The party took place at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago to a packed house of blues lovers who were there to see the eldest son of the great Muddy Waters! We must mention the wonderful opening set that night by the Chicago Blues Angels. We also have to acknowledge the great appearances by Katherine Davis and Deitra Farr who each sang a song at the opening of Mud’s second set. In addition to the show at Legends, Mud also made a televised appearance the day before on WGN which was aired throughout the USA! For both of these events, Mud reunited the stellar cast of backing musicians that appeared on the CD. Here are some photos from this blues celebration!

One thought on “Mud Morganfield CD Release Party & WGN Performance – March 2012

  1. Wonderful cpmoilation! Thanks Marios.Do you know of the Decca cpmoilation that was released around this time (perhaps a bit later) called The World Of Blues Power Volume 2 (better than volume 1 i believe)?An incredible comp that throws in bands like Ten Years After and Savoy Brown into the mix…as well as a couple of Eddie Boyd monsters!Would be great to hear that one again if possible.
