AllMusic [1]

After the Rain is the sixth studio album by Muddy Waters. It is the follow-up to the previous year's Electric Mud, and shares many of the same musicians. Unlike Electric Mud, After the Rain contained mostly Waters's own compositions; the songs, while still distorted, are less overtly psychedelic. [2]

On September 13, 2011, Get On Down Records digitally remastered and reissued the album on compact disc and vinyl. On November 22, 2011, After the Rain and Electric Mud were combined and reissued on a single disc by BGO Records.
