The charismatic blues master, with an excellent backing band, at the zenith of his powers!
The group that took the stage for the German TV program Rockpalast on December 10, 1978, was one of Muddy's very best. The band featured pianist Pinetop Perkins, drummer Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, bassist Calvin Jones, guitarists Luther "Guitar Jr." Johnson and Bob Margolin, rounded out by harmonica player Jerry Portnoy. The set list contained some of Muddy’s biggest hits including, “Got My Mojo Working”, “Mannish Boy” and “Hoochie Coochie Man” as well as less played titles.
As a bonus, the 2CD/2DVD set includes a complete concert of the Muddy Waters Tribute Band, recorded on June 23, 1996 at an open air Rockpalast concert at Loreley, featuring a guest appearance by Levon Helm of The Band. Side D of the 2LP set contains 4 selections from this performance.
