Bootleg Friday: Muddy Waters, 1981

Today’s installment of Bootleg Friday is a great one: Muddy Waters (and friends) at the Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago, recorded on November 22, 1981. The “friends” at this show include: Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Lefty Dizz…and Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ron Wood, who were in town to play three nights in Chicago on their Tattoo You tour. It was one of Muddy’s last performances before his death in 1983, and the show is both celebratory and masterful. The interplay with Waters and Jagger is fascinating – truly one of a teacher and a pupil grown up.
