Though Muddy Waters in concert in those days was better than Waters on record, not many of his shows seem to have been taped and that only boldfaces the value of this previously unreleased set of live recordings from 1971. Muddy's band hooked up with a tour managed by the late Link Wyler, who was managing Big Mama Thornton. The tour included Thornton, Muddy Waters, Big Joe Turner, Bee Houston, J.B. Hutto, and George "Harmonica" Smith.
