DVD - Muddy Waters - Live At Chicago Fest,1981

Live At Chicago Fest

By 1981, Muddy Waters' musical legacy was cemented in stone in letters writ large by three decades of amazing music. Born McKinley Morganfield in the Mississippi Delta, Waters moved north to Chicago during the 1940s, where he proceeded to revolutionize the blues with an electric, urban edge. As a performer, musician, and bandleader who discovered talents like guitarist Jimmy Rogers and Little Walter Jacobs, Waters left an indelible imprint on the history of the blues. Invited to perform at the annual ChicagoFest outdoor festival in August 1981, Waters was the undisputed mack daddy of the city's blues scene. After a long dry spell during the 1960s and into the mid-70s, Winter had enjoyed a satisfying final chapter with a trio of fine albums produced by blues-rock guitarist Johnny Winter during the latter part of the decade. Still, he had no band until long-time friend and harmonica player Mojo Buford put one together specifically for this festival.
The concert performance begins with Waters' classic "Mannish Boy," the song's stomp-n-stammer beat losing none of its power through the years regardless of its familiarity. With Waters' best blues growl in front, the band grinds out its bragging, boasting rhythms as the elder bluesman jumps-n-jives across the stage. Muddy delivers a down-n-dirty reading of Big Joe Williams' rock-n-roller favorite, "Baby Please Don't Go." Combining gruff, soulful vocals with bandmember Mojo Buford's raging harpwork and a sturdy, shuffling beat, the performance transcends the song's blues roots in becoming a blues-rock standard.
