Muddy Waters' show at the Newport Jazz Festival on 3 July 1960. One of the great live albums, this isn't the complete show - a recent DVD features a couple more tracks which don't appear here - "Rollin' Stone", "Mean Mistreater/Going to Chicago Blues".

A review:
"For many back in the early 1960s, this was their first exposure to live recorded blues, and it's still pretty damn impressive some 40-plus years down the line. Muddy, with a band featuring Otis Spann, James Cotton, and guitarist Pat Hare, lays it down tough and cool with a set that literally had 'em dancing in the aisles by the set closer, a rippling version of "Got My Mojo Working," reprised again in a short encore version. Kicking off the album with a version of "I've Got My Brand on You" that positively burns the relatively tame (in comparison) studio take, Waters heads full bore through impressive versions of "Hoochie Coochie Man," Big Bill Broonzy's "Feel So Good," and "Tiger in Your Tank." A great breakthrough moment in blues history, where the jazz audience opened its ears and embraced Chicago blues. This album was in print almost continuously on vinyl for 20-plus years, and MCA reissued it in a fair CD version in 1986. At least one enterprising European bootlegger issued their version in the early 1990s, but the real edition of this album to get is the March 2001 remastering from MCA. Transferred in high-resolution digital audio, it brings up the bass overall and the details of just about every aspect of the playing, as well as moving Muddy's singing several layers forward in the mix, so that one gets a very vivid stage ambience, making the original CD seem very ragged. The reissue has been augmented by the presence of four studio sides cut by the same group a month prior to the concert -- none hold a candle to the live material, but they do fill in a few hole in Muddy's U.S. discography. The new notes by Mary Katherine Aldin also give a much better picture of the background of the show and Muddy's performance (so where's the film of the performance that she mentions?)." ~ Cub Koda & Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

A great, great performance from Muddy Waters and his band live at the Newport Jazz Festival, 03 July '60.

During a Ray Charles performance the previous evening, riots broke out and fans and police clashed in the humid heat.

Muddy and his band went on about 5 pm and astonished the crowd.

Film footage exists and shows Muddy at his peak...a master performer clearly having the crowd captivated and in the palm of his hand.

As noted, this album was remastered in much better sound fidelity with some additional bonus tracks also recorded about a month earlier in early June '60.

An utterly superb performance by the master himself, with great sound.

Not the entire performance unfortunately, as the opening number: "Catfish Blues" and possibly a couple of others are missing.

Also missing from the album, but performed was "Mean Mistreater".

Don't let that distract you from this great album though.

Interesting story about the cover photograph, it was in fact, taken on the day he performed at Newport Jazz Festival, Sunday 03rd July '60.

However, due to the riots the previous evening, John Lee Hooker was in attendance having not yet left the festival.

Muddy's usual Fender Telecaster couldn't be located for the photograph, so he used John Lee Hooker's semi-acoustic guitar for the cover shots.

Too bad the full performance isn't on this great disc, I'm sure the missing tracks would round out an already stellar performance.

This album is consistantly listed as one of the greatest blues influential albums of all time...influenced the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin among other great groups.

This album is also consistantly listed as one of the top 100 albums of all time.

Get this one, you won't be disappointed.

Highly recommended....

RIP: Muddy...you are missed.
