The album King Bee contains his classics “I'm A King Bee” and “Champagne & Reefer” and is available as a 40th Anniversary Limited Edition of 1500 copies on solid blue coloured vinyl. A few facts about this blues legend:

  • Waters got his first record deal with the help of colleague Chuck Berry;
  • During the mid-1970's, when he was again without a record label, other colleague Johnny Winters helped him getting signed at Blue Sky Records;
  • His blues legacy lives on through his son, who also performs as a blues musician and is known as Mud Morganfield;
  • Muddy Waters married his second wife Marva Brooks in 1979, with Eric Clapton as his best man;
  • To honor the legacy of this blues legend, both Chicago and Westmont have named streets in Muddy's honor, he's appeared on a postage stamp, a marker commemorates the site of his childhood home in Clarksdale, and he appeared as a character in the 2008 film Cadillac Records, played by Jeffrey Wright.
