Muddy Mississippi Waters Live is a live album by Muddy Waters.
The songs were recorded in 1977 and 1978 when Muddy Waters was going through a revival in his career thanks to the Hard Again studio album for Johnny Winter’s Blue Sky label. In 1978, Waters released the I’m Ready studio album.
It was originally issued as a seven track single album in 1979 which was then issued as a CD in 1991. In 2003, a second CD was added to create the Legacy Edition while the shorter album also stayed in print.
