Muddy Waters Live At ChicagoFest is an electrifying performance featuring the legendary bluesman in top form. This 12-track DVD includes accompaniment from Johnny Winter and features some of his signature songs, like the quintessential blues anthem "Mannish Boy," "Trouble No More" and "They call Me Muddy Waters," which has a slide solo not to be forgotten. A huge influence on the 1960's British Invasion, Waters, also referred to as the Father of Electric Blues Guitar, hit the R&B charts four times in 1951 alone. Though it didn't chart, his 1950 song "Rollin' Stone" provided Mick Jagger and company their future name. Much of his early history is documented in the recent Cadillac Records--a fictionalized Chess Records--film. Additionally, the six-time GRAMMY winner is a Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee.
