Artist - Muddy Water

Title - Hard Again

Format - 1 LP, 180-gram blue vinyl

Label - Music on Vinyl

Vinyl reissue of the album HARD AGAIN, which sparked a huge comeback for Waters as it hit #143 on the US charts, an amazing feat for a bare-bones Blues album. Opening up with the one song that cemented Muddy's place in Rock & Roll heaven: "Mannish Boy"!

The importance of Muddy Waters 1977 album Hard Again cannot be overstated, and its place as a near-universal favorite in the Muddy Water catalog is no mistake. Recorded in the last decade of his life, Hard Again was the first studio collaboration between Waters and guitarist Johnny Winter, who acted as producer on his last four recordings.  The true revelation here is Waters, whose vigor and fire are renewed; he's hungry for the music and completely in possession of his prowess and power as the true King of the Blues. At 62, Waters was revving up for one final go; Winter pushed him to take the mantle of legend seriously and rise to its challenge. He does with fire, verve, and humor.

The Muddy Waters Blues Band was a crack outfit on the scene; it included guitarist Bob Margolin,  pianist Pinetop Perkins, and drummer Willie "Big Eyes" Smith. Winter was on board playing guitar in addition to helming the session, and Waters asked James Cotton to play his harp and the latter brought his bassist, Charles Calmese for the date. The twin-guitar attack featured here is one of the most complementary and symbiotic in late 29th century electric blues.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Your vinyl record will be cleaned by the Degritter 120kHz ultrasonic cleaning system. It has been carefully designed to make sure that records are cleaned thoroughly and without any damage to the surface of the record.

Ultrasonic cleaning works by creating a large number of microscopical bubbles in the cleaning bath, a phenomena called cavitation. The bubbles are a vacuum created by high frequency pressure waves moving through the water.

Every ultrasonic cycle bubbles are formed and collapsed, releasing energy as heat and minuscule strong water jets. These effects combined thoroughly clean all surfaces down to a microscopic level.

Cost of service is per vinyl record.  For example, Double LP records will require TWO cleaning service purchases. Price will include a new antistatic sleeve.
