  1. Ummh, keep thinking I must have this somewhere but have no recoillection of ever downloading it at all. Interesting for a few reasons – slap in the middle of Muddy’s ‘comeback’ under the guidance of Johnny Winter on the CBS Blue Sky label, but this is the regular tour band with 2 interesting additions. Obviously Bill guesting as he did with Buddy Guy and Junior Wells on their classic live album set at Montreux, In addition the guesting of Clarence Gatemouth Brown on piano (piano really!!) never seen Gate on any Muddy set, and I have never seen him credited on any instrument other than guitar or violin.
    Interesting indeed, only shame is the lack of a SBD for this one
    Cheers Mat

  2. Hey this blog is an important part of my ongoing Grateful Dead education. I rely heavily on your well informed clientele – keep the info coming guys please. I also rely heavily on this place for Lucinda Williams, wilco and Ryan Adams sets and info too too. These artists have a slightly lower profile over here and they are all much newer to me relatively speaking.

    I’m just impressed you managed to find such a significant Muddy boot that I was totally unaware of. I’ve cleaned out so many blogs and boards of Muddy sets over the years. Looking forward to checkin’ this one out later tonight

    Check out that Buddy Guy/Junior Wells album if you get the chance, bit of a classic, recorded at Montreux ’74, I’ve seen it under a couple of different titles but I think the original release was ‘Messing With The Kid’

    Cheers all

  3. Probably my all-time favorite album is Todd Rundgren’s “Something/Anything”… on side 4 of that record, he does a brief cover of “Messing With The Kid”… based on your reference to that here, DylanDave, I just realized that wasn’t a Todd original it was a blues cover! Cool ~

    And, nice-looking post here, Mat. I liked it when the Stones were still humble enough to just kinda guest on someone else’s project — with Bill Wyman as a definite side-note to the star, Muddy — instead of the other way around when Buddy Guy appeared in their “Shine A Light” movie. As much as I love the Stones (and I do), the original blues guys should be the stars every time.
