iTunes Review

All the studio recordings in Muddy Waters' late-career string of Johnny Winter–produced albums bear a raw, live feel, and the concert recording in this batch bristles with urgency and electricity. Muddy was in the middle of his comeback phase when these performances were captured, and he brings a bold, larger-than-life feeling to everything from Sonny Boy Williamson's "Nine Below Zero" to his own steamy, slow-burning "She's Nineteen Years Old." Backed by Winter and his faithful henchmen (Pinetop Perkins, James Cotton, etc.), Waters sounds more like a man at the peak of his powers than one near the end of his run.

Customer Reviews

This the best live album of all time.

The album is just pure power. It brings you into the room and on stage better than any other live recording. The music on this album is just s snap shot of how great it was to be around Muddy Waters. He was a great entertainer, and mentor to those who wanted to really play, deep, down, rocking blues. Any criticism that is directed at this album is unfounded in the performance, and founded in lack of life experiences. It takes a person who can appreciate other people for who they are, and not fit them into a person they would like to be. Muddy was an original. He was the most influential artist of his period in any genre. Musicians loved to play with him because he made them better, and helped them create what type of artist they were going to be.

Jimi Atlas is an idiot

1st off it's Johnny Winter NOT winters you jerk! Johnny's voice is anything but wimpy obviously you've never really listened to any of his music.
Johnny is one of the best quitar players of all time.

Love the Blues

Arguably the best Live Muddy Waters out there. Sound is great and the music is even better. Try finding a song played with more passion, energy and grit than "Mannish Boy". Must Have!!

Muddy Waters was the single most important artist to emerge in post-war American blues. A peerless singer, a gifted songwriter, an able guitarist, and leader of one of the strongest bands in the genre (which became a proving ground for a number of musicians who would become legends in their own right), Waters absorbed the influences of rural blues from the Deep South and moved them uptown, injecting his music with a fierce, electric energy and helping pioneer the Chicago Blues style that would come...
