Synopsis by Mark Deming
Muddy Waters, arguably the single most important artist in postwar electric blues, gets the royal treatment in this concert video, recorded during his appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1974. Joining Waters for this gig are two other blues legends, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, while Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young drummer Dallas Taylor add some big-name firepower by sitting in with Muddy's band. Songs include "Messin' With the Kid" and "Hoodoo Man Blues" (Junior Wells), "Ten Years Ago" and "When You See the Tears From My Eyes" (Buddy Guy), and "Mannish Boy" and ("Got My Mojo Workin') (Muddy Waters).
