Product Description

Format: Music DVD+CD On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Muddy Waters club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform. It didn t take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.

Convince yourself and go buy it.
The combination Muddy Waters - The Rolling Stones is excellent.
Excellent quality of sound and image.
What a big surprise if you compare it with that ugly bootleg
that was circling for years now.
Just wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just awesome 12 July 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD purely because the Rolling Stones were performing and I am so glad I did. This is an awesome show from Buddy Guy's Club. To see the great Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy perform their music was wonderful. I am now a fan of the blues and will be looking for music of this genre to add to my vast musical collection. A real "must see" show. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreams are made of this 1 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great variety of musicians and the fact that the gig was clearly pre-arranged doesn't diminish the authenticity of the chemistry on stage. Ronnie's concentration clearly shows that there hadn't been much, if any, rehearsal: but not a wrong note struck. Jagger doesn't play a significant part in the DVD and that is as it should be: but his performance is also excellent.

Reviewers who complain that this was not a spontaneous jam session should consider how a fan of the blues, introduced to the genre by the Brian Jones inspired Stones would feel seeing such a performance. I was lucky enough to see the Stones with Brian but a dream come true would be to attend an event such as this: small venues is what the greatest rock and blues band do best and the environment the blues belongs in. An added bonus is the involvement of the 6th original Stone on the piano. Ian Stewart was the glue that held these wayward troubadours together and his playing is, as always, flawless.

Good quality, exciting content. A strange, amazing night in a foggy bluesy club, that shows children playing with their father. Keith & Ron swimm in well known waters, anyway what else we're supposed to do..? Watch & Listen. Great..!!

Everything I expected. Good sound and picture quality. The line-up absolutely great. The atmosphere of the gig was really caught on camera. Muddy at his best with his proteges The Rolling Stones doing the backing.
