The reviews below are of Mud’s album, Son of the Seventh Son:

“a truly classy album.”

Blues Matters magazine

“The subtle artistry in Son of the Seventh Son is a gem to be discovered. As the last song ends, you will be amazed as you realize that you were taken on a trip back to the old days with a spin of today’s blues. Son of the Seventh Son is music history in the making, featuring a voice in the blues that is uniquely Mud Morganfield’s.”
Dawn O’Keefe Williams, Chicago Blues Guide

“The atmospheric, spacious arrangements are similarly rooted in Muddy’s era with lots of loose, spontaneous guitar-piano-harmonica interplay on the various shuffles, mid-tempo strutters and slow groovers, making this one of the better old school Chicago blues CDs to
come along in some time.”

Dan Willging, Driftwood Magazine

“(Mud) delivers his lyrics in a no-nonsense manner, sounding appropriately gruff on the up-tempo songs with a little bit of smooth understatement, rather than going for a shouting delivery. If anyone can lay claim to the brags in the title track, which pulls lines from several classic blues songs, Morganfield’s the man.”

Mike Shanley, Blurt

“. . . some of the best Chicago blues I’ve heard in years. I highly recommend Son of a Seventh Son to any lover of the blues. Muddy would not be disappointed in how his legacy is being carried on.”

Rhetta Akamatsu,

“Morganfield sounds great on these tracks…..some of his vocal inflections are amazingly identical to his father’s and will bring a knowing nod and a smile to blues fans’ faces when they hear them. The band is nothing short of fantastic, and Corritore manages to make the
traditional sound brand new with his production. As Bill Mitchell pointed out here last month, you will find Son of the Seventh Son on plenty of Top Ten lists at the end of the year.”

Graham Clarke, Phoenix Blues Society

“. . . the resemblance between Mud and his famous father is uncanny, and he’s got the phrasing and delivery down pat . . . this is a fine effort that definitely adds to the Morganfield musical legacy.”

John Taylor, Blinded By Sound
