This would be Muddy Waters' final album for Chess. Recorded in 1975, The Muddy Waters Woodstock Album was the brainchild of The Band's Levon Helm and producer/songwriter Henry Glover. At the time, the duo's production company, RCO, had recently set up shop in a barn-turned-studio in Woodstock, New York, and Muddy Waters was their first client.

The album, born of a unique merger of top-flight talent (Waters' touring band plus the finest musicians then living in and around Woodstock), is one of the loosest, swingingest records that Waters ever cut, and features such musicians as blues-harp great Paul Butterfield, Helm and Garth Hudson (of The Band), guitarist Bob Margolin and keyboardist Willie "Pinetop" Perkins (from Waters' band), and renowned session players Fred Carter and Howard Johnson.

In 1978 it won the Grammy Award for Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording.
