Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Muddy Waters is one of the most important singer-songwriter/guitarists of the post-modern blues era. His early 1960s UK tours inspired many British musicians, including the Rolling Stones that took their name from his classic song, "Rollin' Stone." Over the '60s into the early 1970s Waters became an international force, performing on various bills and artist pairings on club, concert hall and festival stages.
This eight-song, never-before-released set was recorded at the legendary Ash Grove Club in Los Angeles over the Blue Summit weekend (with Freddie King and Lightnin' Hopkins) July 27 - August 1, 1971. The show was recorded not long before his infamous London Sessions recordings. That album was one of his six Grammy-winning Traditional Folk recordings throughout the '70s.
