Ultra rare copy. Probably only one exist in the world. Beautiful artist painting of Muddy Waters. No painter signature. The painting cover was not made for the owner and for personal use. Letter on the cover (number, label name) are printed not painted or making by pen or any drawing tool (it's shows on photos). On the back cover the poems of Huddie Ledbetter's "Leadbelly".
When Muddy Waters played during the Warsaw in Sala Kongresowa in 22.10.1976 on 19th International Jazz Festival "Jazz Jamborre 16'" the organizers asked him to give a permission for recording. They said him that the album will be distributed in the small group of people as a limited edition. Muddy Waters said OK. And the first copies was making in the poor printing cover.
