This 1981 performance (Waters died in '83) features the final version of Muddy's band, including pianist Lovie Lee and harmonica man George "Mojo" Buford, but there's also a guest appearance from blues-rock guitar hero Johnny Winters, who had produced a trio of late-'70s albums that gave Waters a comeback of sorts. The set list includes plenty of Muddy's classics, like the carnal stomp "Mannish Boy" and the frenzied "Got My Mojo Working.
On their night off, several of the Stones hit Buddy Guy's club, the Checkerboard Lounge, to see Muddy Waters and his band (which featured guitarist John Primer and harpist George "Mojo" Buford at the time). An impromptu blues jam ensued, and before the night was done, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Ian Stewart, Lefty Dizz, Junior Wells, and Guy himself had all appeared on the stage with Waters and his band.

Muddy Waters had a great ear for talent and accordingly the formation accompanying him on this DVD was one of the very best: The pianist Pinetop Perkins, drummer Willie Big Eyes Smith, bass player Calvin Jones, the two guitarists Luther Guitar J. Johnson and Bob Margolin and harmonica player Jerry Portnoy. As a bonus the box set contains a recording of the Muddy Waters Tribute Band during a Rockpalast Open Air at the Loreley in summer 1996, where all the still living (and healthy) members of Muddy’s old band came together, each of them sang a couple of songs. Except Gone To Main Street where The Band’s Levon Helm takes over the microphone as guest vocalist. The band had always had a special relationship with Muddy Waters who had also made a memorable and exceptional guest appearance in their film The Last Waltz.
