MUDDY WATERS - Hoochie Coochie Man, Live at the Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club

Recorded in January of 1977 at Montreal’s legendary Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club, the record features some of Muddy’s greatest bandmates, including Luther “Guitar Junior” Johnson and “Steady Rollin’” Bob Margolin on guitar, Jerry Portnoy on harmonica, Pinetop Perkins on piano, along with Calvin Jones on bass and Willie Smith on drums. The band are terrific throughout which is why it is no surprise that they, like many others, went on to have outside recognition after playing with Muddy’s band. The standout track is an 11 minute version of the classic, “Kansas City,” in which Muddy shares vocals with Perkins. This rare recording captures the raw and electric intensity of the small club with Muddy’s commanding voice front and center. First time on vinyl. Rare recording. This special Record Store Day deluxe 2LP gatefold package includes coloured heavy weight vinyl, download card will include album track-listing and digital booklet.
