Synopsis by Mark Deming

A live video shot at a 1982 New Jersey date by British blues icon John Mayall and his Bluesbreakers (which at the time included former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor), this concert turned out to be a summit meeting of some of the great names in blues when guitarists Albert King and Buddy Guy, harmonica player Junior Wells and singers Etta James and Sippie Wallace all showed up to sit in with the band. The result was a blues lover's dream show, with Albert, Buddy and Mick swapping fiery solos, Sippie and Etta wailing as only they can, and Junior adding his trademark harp attack.
