The late Muddy Waters was one of the finest and most influential blues performers of all time -- just ask The Rolling Stones, who took their name from one of his songs. On video of this concert, Muddy was captured in fine form onstage at the Chicago Blues Festival, with friend and collaborator Johnny Winter sitting in on guitar; songs include Mannish Boy and I'm A King Bee.

Johnny Winter in September 1981
Johnny Winter at the Old Waldorf/San Francisco, Uncle John Turner remembers: Catfish Hodge on guitar, Bob Hodge's brother Dallas Hodge and the bass player's name is Campbell; I think his first name was Chris. they are from Detroit. The place was San Francisco and it was 1981. The club was in the top of a downtown building and it was Bill Graham's place. We were in the middle of a little mini-tour. I think the bassist was in the Bob Seger band at the time. A bootleg recording of this concert was released at "The Lost Show"
