These are fantastic candids. Thanks for finding and sharing them. Hubert Sumlin
played lead guitar for years in Howlin' Wolf
's band, starting around 1954, so that photo of him must be from a Chess tour where Wolf and Waters shared a bill. Or from a short period in 1956 where Hubert was in the Waters band. Wow!
Waters' studio work for Chess between 1947 and 1960 is so wonderful, much of it may be heard on Muddy Waters: The Chess Box
. And his Live At Newport 1960
LP is simply amazing.

(Chess LP 1449, November 15, 1960)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/At_Newport_1960Recorded on Sunday, July 3, 1960.
How crazy is it Waters was basically a singles artist for the first twenty years of his career? Or that it was one of his singles that gave the Rolling Stones
their name, not to mention the legendary Rolling Stone
Listen to the pristine, precise lead guitar! It's fantastic.Muddy Waters "Rollin' Stone" (Chess 1426, March 1950)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rollin%27_Stone
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muddy_Waters_discography"Rollin' Stone" is a solo performance by Muddy Waters, just his vocals and electric guitar.
This was the second record released on the fledgling Chess label, out of Chicago.
