Someone who decided to put a huge logo on the upper left side of this concert DVD sure knows how to mess up a great concert DVD. Otherwise great audio and video.
I think the copyright for this video passed through several hands before Laser Media picked it up and brought to DVD. This would explain the massive "LIVE" in the top left corner of the picture. I like to think it serves as a friendly (if not obnoxiously obvious) reminder that this live concert is 'LIVE'. This isn't the only issue I have with the picture. You get a lot of camera angles and introductions to the soloists when they take center stage displaying their talents but the picture is fuzzy. No remastering went into the visual aspect of this release at all.
The focus of this release is on the sound which is crisp. Track listing from the back cover is as follows:
Intro-After Hours Soon Forgotten Howlin' Wolf Blues Hoochie Coochie Man Blow Wind Blow Can't Get No Grindin Long Distance Call Got My Mojo Workin' Got My Mojo Workin' (special version) Theme Got My Mojo Workin' (70's version)
I've been trying to get any Muddy footage I can, after starting my collection with "Checkerboard Lounge". I found this great concert on line; "Muddy Waters - Live Dortmund, Germany 29/10/1976" but couldn't search it any way for Purchase. While compiling my Muddy wish list off of Amazon, I took a shot with this DVD and was thrilled to find; "This is It!" For whatever reason there is no direct reference to it, but I'm glad I now have it! This is My era for prime Muddy, he and the Band are "DEAD ON' as they rip through many of the classics. Video and Sound Quality are pretty good.....can't get enough!
