1977 was a remarkable year. Muddy Waters earns a huge gold album with his Hard Again LP, which was produced by long time fan and protege Johnny Winter. Featuring harmonica/vocalist legend James Cotton, the trio decided to shake things up and delivered a concert tour that was one of the most celebrated blues packages of all time.

Fortunately, Columbia Records ran tape for several nights of the tour in Philly, New York and Detroit, but they weren't released until three decades later on compact disc "Breakin' It Up, Breakin' It Down," as it became one of the crowned jewels of blues revisits in decades.

The jam packed disc included all of the great tunes you would love to hear from this super group including Muddy Waters tearing down the house with "I've Got My Mojo Workin'," Johnny Winter opening the night with his stellar "Black Cat Bone," and the great James Cotton belting it out on the classic "Rocket 88."

In furthering your hunger for more great blues recordings, Friday Music is pleased to announce the first time ever audiophile vinyl release of Breakin' It Up, Breakin' It Down by the legends Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter and James Cotton.

Mastered impeccably by long time Johnny Winter fan and friend Joe Reagoso and pressed at RTI, this incredible album will be one of the most important blues releases this year.

The 2LP masterwork will be featured in a striking gatefold cover, and to further enhance your listening hours, Friday Music is including a 24" x 24" poster of the album cover.
