Muddy Waters Live At Chicago Fest is an electrifying performance featuring the legendary bluesman in top form. This 12-track DVD includes accompaniment from Johnny Winter and features some of his signature songs, like the quintessential blues anthem "Mannish Boy," "Trouble No More" and "They call Me Muddy Waters," which has a slide solo not to be forgotten. A huge influence on the 1960's British Invasion, Waters, also referred to as the Father of Electric Blues Guitar, hit the R&B charts four times in 1951 alone. Though it didn't chart, his 1950 song "Rollin' Stone" provided Mick Jagger and company their future name. Much of his early history is documented in the recent Cadillac Records--a fictionalized Chess Records--film. Additionally, the six-time GRAMMY winner is a Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee.

MUDDY WATERS: Live in Chicago Festival (DVD - Video)

I was at this show. It was an excellent show. It was recorded during ChicagoFest on Navy Pier in Chicago. Muddy played on one of the smaller stages and he drew an immense crowd. He drew more than the band which played the Main Stage that evening. The band was Cheap Trick. This band was far from a "pick up" band. This was the final version of the Muddy Waters Blues Band and included: Mojo Buford, John Primer, Rick Kreher, Ernest Johnson, Ray Allison and Lovie Lee. Mojo Buford is a legend. John Primer went on to be the foundation of Magic Slim's band for over a decade. Rick Kreher is a fabulous guitarist. He played with a Who's Who of Chicago Blues and was most recently a member of Studebaker John & The Hawks. Ernest Johnson was a member of the house band at Theresa's for years. Ray "Killer" Allison went on to play with Buddy Guy. Lovie Lee was a fabulous piano player.Joining the band was Johnny Winter, Big Twist and Mighty Joe Young. This was one of several performances recorded and broadcast from the Blues Stage at Chicago fest. Hope fully, some ofthe other materialize as well. --- joe Info:Run Time: 56 minutesSize: 834 MB (unzipped) Quality: -B Format: .avi Screen Size: 352 x 288
