” Folk Singer is a unique album by Muddy Waters, recorded in September of 1963 during the ‘folk boom’ period when a lot of blues artists were being ‘rediscovered’ – Son House and Skip James, to name a couple. Foregoing his electric sound, Muddy played acoustic guitar on the date, backed by Willie Dixon on string bass, Clifton James on drums, and Buddy Guy on acoustic guitar. Current reissues of the album include bonus tracks from two subsequent sessions in April 1964 and October 1964. In 2003, the album was ranked number 280 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. “My Home Is In The Delta” is the opening track.”
