Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones
On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Muddy Waters’ club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform. It didn’t take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.
Perfectly times for the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the Rolling Stones this release will delight Rolling Stones and Muddy Waters fans alike. Although a few tracks have been on poor quality bootlegs this official release is the most complete version of the show ever to have appeared and is in vastly superior sound and picture quality.
