Electric Mud is the fifth studio album by Muddy Waters, with members of Rotary Connection serving as his backing band. Released in 1968, it imagines Muddy Waters as a psychedelic musician.

This album marks what could probably be considered the nadir of Muddy Waters' career, although at the time it did sell somewhere between 200,000 and 250,000 copies, a lot for Waters in those days. By 1968, Waters was no longer reaching black audiences, who were mostly listening to soul music by that time, and he also wasn't selling records to more than a relatively small cult of white blues enthusiasts. Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Cream were selling millions of records each using licks and sometimes songs learned from Waters

Talk about Muddy Waters - Electric Mud

I think that new pressing plant is working out quite well for Third Man Records (assuming that's where this was pressed). I've never had a 180 gram record lay as flat as this one does. Excellent work. As per the music itself? Controversial my arse. Ignore the pretentious blues-purists. Electric Mud is far from perfect but it is a largely entertaining and fulfilling listen.
WG/NRP is Wes Garland at Nashville Record Productions, I've got some other stuff he mastered. Does good work IMO
The only thing that could clue us in as to who mastered it is the etching "WC NRP" in the deadwax. Not sure what that means or who that could be. Otherwise, it sounds alright. It is very heavy on the low-end, but I'm not sure what the original sounds like. EDIT*** WC NRP doesn't actually tell us much. NRP indicates that it was pressed in Nashville, presumably at Third Man's pressing plant (definitely doesn't sound or look like the product of United, the other Nashville plant). So, with that being said, it's a mystery. The dead wax does not indicate anything other than the aforementioned and the catalog number.
Do you know who mastered this release? How is the sound?
