James Cotton is all over the album, which makes me wonder why Blue Sky doesn’t continue re-recording Muddy with as many of his old sidemen as they can find. Bring Buddy Guy in for the next album and I’d guarantee Buddy cuts his best work in years. […]
This is one of the best blues albums ever. It’s very simple blues as well. The guitars on the album rock. The harp really sticks out and the singing is very good. This is really simple, soulfuland real blues. […]

So if indeed “Blues means what milk does to a baby,” then Hard Again measures up to this criteria. It is as essential as any straight ahead no holds barred blues album ever recorded. Hard Again represents the greatest blues musicians making only the finest pure unadulterated blues ever heard. It is a verified landmark album in the career of a legend beloved by anyone with a genuine love and intense passionate feeling for the blues. […]
