First time I saw a clip from this show was in a documentary called 25 x 5. In the twenty five years since I have never seen any additional video until now. Where it is great to see the Stones (well three of them) with one of their idols this film is more for fans of Muddy Waters. This is a Waters concert with some of the Stones on some of the tracks. Even Muddy Waters is not on every track. This was shot on 80's video but it must have been pretty high end equipment because it looks really good. Not good enough for Blu Ray but looks great on DVD. The audio is 5.1 including a DTS track so the audio was done very well also. It run's a little over 90 minutes and has a couple of bonus tracks. One taken from the stones '81 tour.
One thing I did notice is you can literally see the tension between Jagger and Richards on stage. By this point they were hardly talking to each other. Mick ticked off that after being a heroin zombie for most of the last decade Richards now wanted to regain at least some control and Richards at the end of his tether with Jagger over Jagger thinking he was the Stones. If you watch "Let's Spend The Night Together" you can see a billboard over the stage saying Mick Jagger with the Rolling Stones. So both hated each other. Remember after this tour in 81 the stones would not Tour again until '89.
But back to the DVD. if you love the Blues get it. If you are a Stones Fanatic or completest get it. If your new to the party start somewhere else like "Ladies and Gentleman" or "Gimmie Shelter". Once again Eagle Rock hits it out of the park. Well done!

This is mostly a Muddy Waters live DVD. Only 3 of the Rolling Stones [Jagger, Richards and Woods] plus Ian Stewart actually appear on the DVD. In addition of those 4 Jagger is on just a few tracks [sitting at a table with the crowd] while the other three don't actually appear until almost half way through the concert.
In reality, it should of been called something like Muddy Waters with The Rolling Stones.
Aside from the video - shot in standard definition, the camera work isn't that great. Sound is decent.
Extras include an additional track from the Checkerboard plus The rolling Stones doing one track during their 1981 tour.
The CD that comes with this package contains just over half of the music on the DVD.
Packagine is full of checkerboards - a bit ugly actually.

Just seeing Muddy Waters with his band was worth the ticket. Mick looked and sounded out of place. Keith and Ronnie held their own ground playing with the Chicago blues masters. A must for Muddy Waters and Rolling Stones fans like myself.

Well I had to settle for the comfort of my man cave and my flat screen Panasonic lol, when watching this live concert at Buddy Guy's Checkerboard Club in Chicago.

Everybody was crammed into the club like sardines in a can. Muddy Waters was up front and center perched on his chair belting out the blues with his band when in walks The Stones in town to perform their own gig. The boys saunter into the club, pull up a few chairs and settle in while Waters is warming up the crowd.

The Stones idolized Muddy Waters back in the 1960's when Muddy was touring spreading the blues gospel to the rest of the world. The connection was made back then between the blues and rock and roll as we have it today. The blues seed was planted and the Stones nurtured this style of music into their own style of music.

It doesn't take long before Muddy is coaxing Mick up to the stage to join in and next thing you know he has them all up jammin' as if their lives depended on it.

Other Blues Greats make their own way to the stage cramming it to over capacity to the delight of all those lucky dogs who were present. Lefty Dizz, Buddy Guy, and Junior Wells to name a few.

It seemed like everybody in the house was on something that night, a high octane groove was in the air and the banter and swagger back and forth between the performers was electrifying.

It was a hoot watching Mick strutting his stuff, wagging his caboose and howling to match one of his peers. His band mates coolly just played off to the side, chain smoking and rising forth when prompted to do so.

A few drinks later, a few fine performances past, the whole joint breaks loose. Lightening rarely strikes the same spot twice. Wish I could have been there to see history in the making.

A cold November night in Chicago. Muddy Waters is appearing at Buddy Guy's Checkerboard Lounge. The Stones have a night off from their Chicago concerts. The evening starts with a couple of warm up tunes from Muddy's band. The white guitar player looks uncomfortable - he knows he won't be on stage too long. Muddy does a couple of tunes and suddenly the empty table at the front of the tiny club is filled by Mick, Keith, Ronnie, Stu and accompanying ladies and hangers on. Keith has a couple of minutes to chug straight from the bottle until Muddy calls the Stones on stage. Mick has a ball singing along with his heroes. Keith and Ronnie remind me of a couple of woodsmen setting to work with their favorite axes. Keith transforms immediately from a drunken rocker to a dead serious dude who could be dangerous in a back alley. As more black players arrive on the tiny stage, Mick has the good sense to temporarily depart, possibly in search of exotic smoking material. Keith and Ronnie hold their own with the black musicians; color doesn't matter, they are respected and accepted for their fearsome musical talents. A good time is had by all and the Stones show a humanity and talent that will sustain them through the years. It's a worthwhile DVD that shows the Stones in their prime from a fresh perspective.
