Editorial Reviews

On November 22nd, 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. / Performers: Muddy Waters (vocals, guitar); Mick Jagger (vocals); Keith Richards (guitar); Ronnie Wood (guitar); Ian Stewart (piano); Buddy Guy (vocals, guitar); Lefty Dizz (vocals, guitar); Junior Wells (harmonica, vocals); George Mojo Buford (harmonica); Lovie Lee (piano); Earnest Johnson (bass); Ray Allison (drums); John Primer (guitar); Rick Kreher (guitar); Nick Charles (bass) / Track Listing:
1) Sweet Little Angel 2) Flip Flop And Fly 3) Muddy Waters Introduction 4) You Don t Have To Go 5) Country Boy 6) Baby Please Don't Go 7) Hoochie Coochie Man 8) Long Distance Call 9) Mannish Boy 10) Got My Mojo Working 11) Next Time You See Me 12) One Eyed Woman 13) Baby Please Don't Go (Instrumental) 14) Blow Wind Blow 15) Champagne & Reefer

Customer Reviews

Highly recommend to anyone who loves music.
Rita Andrews
Tiny club, tiny stage crowded with legends Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, and others.
Rick Peterson
Being a Rolling Stones and Blues fanatic, all I can say is that it doesn't get any better.

Apparently there have been bootleg tapes of this 1981 performance, when legendary blues guitarist Muddy Waters was booked into Buy Guy's Chicago "juke joint" (small club with tables right up against the small stage) and Mick, Keith and Ron showed up for front row seats. But this first "official" release (with wonderful brand new sound restoration) is the first time I've seen it. It's truly a historical moment and Eagle Vision has given it a nice packaging and a very reasonable price. (The DVD itself is under $15.00 and the combo pack with the audio CD with 11 of the 13 numbers is only five bucks more.

The whole show lasts 106 minutes though, in reality, there are two numbers up front by Waters band, without the Hootchie Cootchie Man himself. And while Jagger, Richards and Wood are on stage with Waters for quite a few songs, both Waters and Jagger leave the stage for two songs by guitarist/vocalist Lefty Dizz, though Wood and Richards remain on stage. Oh, I forgot the Junior Wells gets to squeeze on the small stage as well.

Waters sings his classics and plays on some of them (he puts away the guitar for a few numbers).

The camera work is super with nice close ups and you can really enjoy Waters and Jagger riffing with each other.

The DVD adds two bonus performances and an 8 page booklet with some photos and an essay by Robert Gordon that - in text - pretty much describes what you see on your screen.

Definitely a must-have for both Blues fans and Stones fans.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

This has been circulating among bootleg collectors for years, and finally we get a "first gen" copy of the complete show with remastered sound. Having seen this before there aren't any surprises. There are a few caveats. Sometimes the video quality is not the best, and sometimes it's spectacular. The performances are very loose and at times chaotic, as musicians jump on and off the low stage with tables right up to the edge. And other times the music is as tight and brilliant as the blues can be. When the Stones show up and begin jamming, the band picks it up a notch, especially the rhythm section that does a fantastic job keeping this from becoming completely out of control. Muddy is not in good health at this time in his life (he passes away two years after this show), and he spends most of the show sitting on a stool on stage. But when the band rips into Mannish Boy, Muddy can't keep his seat. He's up and jumping like he's a young man again, and we see a glimpse of the power and majesty that the man possessed. During part of the show, Mick and Muddy take a seat to allow Jr. Wells (not bad, he should play the harmonica more), Buddy Guy (always a treat), and a drunken Lefty Dizz take turns at center stage. Yes, Dizz is drunk, and ends his feature song standing at the edge of the stage, flailing his arms around, saying or singing something to the audience without a microphone. You can't hear what he's saying but the band and the audience's reactions range from amusement to horror. Wells has to take the stage and literally push Dizz off stage. But it's great that whole sequence is included to give you the complete feel of the evening. No, it doesn't really cast a pall on the rest of the show by any means. It's just comic relief.Read more ›

Obviously this has not yet been released,but for years I have owned Several Bootleg Copies of this show on Many Formats;VHS,DVD and audio cd.
This show is Fantastic!!! The Fact that they are now making an Oficial Release with remasterted sound can only make this that much better!!!!
If You Love the Stones,Muddy Waters or the Blues in General....This is a Must Have...
Watch Keith walk the length of the table to get onstage when he is called up....and let's not forget the Late Great Ian Stewart right at home on the piano...
It's great that they are offering both the cd's and DVD together at a reasonable Price.
I am putting in my Order Tonight

The little stage that could hold the biggest of giants! That is what you could get & the Checkerboard Lounge. I was born & raised in Chicago & have been to most of the clubs in the area. What a show this is people! This is a piece of history you hold in your hands if you have bought this. This is Southside Chicago 423 E. 43d Street to be exact that Buddy Guy owned & now owns Buddy Guys Legends at 700 South Wabash Avenue.On this stage on this night on this dvd & cd you have nothing but legends like Muddy Waters, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, Ian Stewart, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells & Chicago legend John Primer who still plays often at Legends who i have met & hung out with some at a few places. This is a awesome dvd/cd set! The picture is better then i thought it would be too But the sound of the recording is amazing. Very loud upfront clear recording. Every song on this set is killer Muddy Waters. I am so glad they tapped this show i just wish this came out 30 years ago. But at least they did it right & have done a great job on the mastering. What can be better then the man who came up with the line Like A Rolling Stone to play with the Rolling Stones in a small club on the southside of chicago not far from where chess records first recorded Muddy Waters & then still get Buddy Guy & Junior wells on stage too. This is the best of the best playing low down sweet home chicago style blues. just listening to blues music is not the same feeling as going to the Southside Of Chicago & going to one of these blues clubs but this cd & dvd set makes me feel like i'm right there & i can smell the home cooked food & spilled beer. This just may be the greatest blues album to ever exist to man. Long Live Chicago Blues Baby!
