Rare Stones / Muddy Waters Show Released

A 1981 collaboration is released this week

Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981 is out now and it is a recording of a legendary show in which Muddy Waters was joined onstage by the Rolling Stones.

The story goes that 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 Buddy Guy's club, the Checkerboard Lounge, to see the legendary Muddy Waters 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, the event is now available in an official release for the first time.
