Notes from original uploader:

This is another Muddy show I got as part of a large, multi-show folder at a now defunct, hobgoblin of a tracker. Many of these shows seem to be lightly circulated, mostly via etree trades, and I’ve not seen them on BT trackers. If you have seen them torrented before, I’d like to hear about it, please leave a comment. I’ve split these shows into seperate folders, and I’ve renamed files and added checksums and a new info text for each. Original info and EAC text files are included.

The following is a note on track 05 from this show’s listing at db.etree.org:
“still trying to figure out correct title – it’s Muddy’s hybrid of the Eddie Boyd ‘Look Over Yonder Wall’ and Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Mr Highway Man’.” I will add the the “Mr. Highway Man” line was lifted by Wolf from Robert Johnson’s “Terraplane Blues”, and there are also elements of a song called “Highway 51”, not sure who wrote it, but I’ve seen it recorded by Bob Dylan and by “Spider” John Koerner. Otis Spann records this song as “Look Under My Bed,” onhis 1968/9 recording for Pete Welding’s Testament label. You’ll also hear some saxaphone before and during track 05, this appears to be an unsolicited contribution from an audience member.
