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!
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.
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.

couldn't be better must have been a neat time to be in the bar and the rolling stones just drop in for a gig.Published on Jan. 3 2013 by CRAIG DAVIS
Did not know of this recording and it is terrific! History of blues and the routes of the stones is evident.Published on Dec 31 2012 by Grant M Howard
