"The Rolling Stones went back to their roots one amazing night in 1981 at the Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago playing with their hero Muddy Waters. The intimate evening jam was released for the first time by Eagle Vision as Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones: Live at the Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago 1981.
The Checkerboard is a tiny place next to some of the places the Stones play, so from the outset, you can see this isn’t going to be an ordinary night. Muddy Waters’ band opens the show, then two songs in, the man himself joins the group and they begin playing a burning set of blues.
During “Baby, Please Don’t Go,” Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Ian Stewart make their way into the club. The audience roars as they see the group come in. Shortly thereafter, Muddy Waters calls Jagger to join him on stage. Jagger comes up and a historical blues summit begins to take place.
“What about Keith?,” Waters says, and Richards joins them and straps on a guitar, cigarette dangling from his mouth. Ron Wood follows him to the stage soon after.
The focus stays on the blues through the whole set. There are no Stones songs here. Though Jagger doesn’t stay at the mike the entire time, Richards and Wood continue to play. The songs include “Hoochie Coochie Man,” “Long Distance Call” and “Mannish Boy.” The set also includes contributions from Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and Stones pianist Ian Stewart."
Une bonne idée des Stones de fouiller dans leurs archives et de rajeunir et remixer impeccablement ce show de Muddy Waters qui fit le bonheur des amateurs de bootlegs il y a quelques décennies.
A noter que l'album est accompagné du DVD du show avec des bonus inédits.
