Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones Live will premiere on select stations starting this Saturday; check local listings for the airdates in your area.
The performance took place at the Checkerboard Lounge, a club owned by Buddy Guy, and featured Stones singer Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, and touring keyboard player Ian Stewart collaborating with Waters on renditions of such classics as "Baby Please Don't Go," "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Mannish Boy" and "Got My Mojo Workin'." Buddy Guy and fellow blues veteran Junior Wells also hit the stage during the set.
The program is culled from footage that appeared in the recently released Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones -- Live at the Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981 DVD. The concert flick boasts audio that's been remixed and remastered by longtime Stones studio engineer Bob Clearmountain.
