MUD MORGANFIELD ; NEW CD, SON OF THE
SEVENTH SON
Posted by James McQuiston on November
22nd, 2011

Hot off the signing of seminal American roots
music bands, The Fabulous Thunderbirds
and The Nighthawks, Severn Records has
announced the signing of  “Mud” Morganfield,
son of the legendary Muddy Waters, and will
release his label debut CD, Son of the
Seventh Son, in early 2012.
Recorded in Chicago and produced by Bob
Corritore, Son of the Seventh Son features
Mud Morganfield’s earthy, soulful vocals
backed by a cadre of blues all-stars,
including Kenny Smith on drums, Rick
Kreher and Billy Flynn on guitar, Barrelhouse
Chuck on keyboards, E.G. McDaniel on bass,
and Harmonica Hines and Bob Corritore on
harp.
“I just couldn’t have done this without those
cats, man,” Morganfield told writer Terry
Mullins in an interview published in Blues
Blast Magazine. “They brought something to
the studio that will forever live in my heart. It
brought out the best in me. It’s a great CD,
some of the best work I’ve done so far. It’s
got one great song after another on it.
“There’s two songs of pop’s on there and
with anything I do, I’m gonna add pop,”
Morganfield said in the interview. “But the rest
of the disc is made up of several songs that I
wrote, along with a song that Bob Corritore
wrote and one my good friend Studebaker
John wrote. But it’s all got that Muddy style to
it, because that’s who I am. Without me even
trying, I come off like the son of Muddy Waters
and I’m proud that it’s like that.”
Chicago-based Mud Morganfield is the
eldest son of the blues icon and bears a
striking vocal and physical resemblance to
his illustrious father. He has toured all over
the word spreading the gospel of blues just
like his daddy did and will support the
release of Son of the Seventh Son with tour
dates both in the U.S. and internationally, as
well.

Muddy Waters or Mud Morganfield?  It’s
almost impossible to tell.  Of course, nothing
would please Mud more than hearing people
say he sounds just like his late father "Muddy
Waters" on the track “Loco Motor” from his
new album Son Of The Seventh Son.

Naturally, Mud, the eldest son of legendary
bluesman "Muddy Waters", was drawn to
music at an early age.  He learned to make
the best of his famous father’s hectic touring
schedule, seeing Muddy only during brief
respites at home in Chicago.  Ever the
devoted father, Muddy bought his son a drum
set every Christmas, which Mud learned to
play at age seven.  Later, he switched to
bass guitar while delving into songwriting.

Mud and his younger brother, noted blues
singer and guitarist “Big” Bill Morganfield,
entertained the idea of becoming
professional musicians after Muddy’s death
in 1983.  Blues fans were introduced to Mud
at a tribute concert to his father in 2007, but
his performance at the Chicago Blues
Festival that same year brought him instant
recognition.

Mud, now 57, composed most of the songs
on his new album Son Of The Seventh Son,
including “Blues In My Shoes.”  He also
performs the Muddy Waters tune, “You Can’t
Lose What You Ain’t Never Had.”  According
to producer and harmonica player Bob
Corritore, the CD “brings you the great Mud
Morganfield in all his glory.”  It was recorded
in Chicago and features some of the city’s
top blues musicians.

Mud is taking his recent surge in popularity in
stride.   “When I’m up on stage I always feel
pops is there with me, and it means so much
that I can get on stage and keep his music
alive around the world,” he says.

notes
Fans of the old man know that Muddy Waters
was truly a "Hoochie Coochie Man". And
Muddy Waters' first son was born in 1954
and given his mother's maiden name. The
boy was raised by his mother and often
heard the nicknames of "Muddy", Muddy Jr."
and "Little Muddy", but currently goes by MUD.
It was hard for the young boy who rarely saw
his famous father, however, Mud did keep in
contact over the years and the old man was
always there for him. As a youth and young
man, Mud kept a low profile. He was always
involved with music on a personal level, but
only recently has he stepped forward to
embrace his musical gifts - a big voice that
can only be compared to his daddy! Mud is
now ready to honor his dad and his music.
Watching Mud is like taking a trip in a time
machine to blues heaven - you won't believe
your ears and eyes! Mud sounds and looks
like his old man in a way that no one else
can! One of his dad's former sidemen said
"It's like watching a ghost in the flesh!" Come
and check Mud out for yourself - you won't be
disappointed. Look out blues fan... a special
delivery from the Blues Music Gods has
arrived! CHECK OUT MUD WITH THE GREAT
