From: 'The Rolling Stones' (1964). Willie Dixon's blues perennial was first recorded by Muddy Waters in 1954, and the Stones covered it on their debut album a decade later. It pretty much serves as an introduction to the band's approach to the blues: more guitar, more menace and more rock 'n' roll. Still, in their formative years the Stones were mostly faithful, and this frenzied cover of "I Just Want to Make Love to You" remains an early highlight. 4. "Ventilator Blues". Taylor's work gives "Ventilator Blues" a distinctive feel, as does a rare double-tracked vocal from Mick Jagger. But the song's strange rhythm signature, created by saxophonist Bobby Keys and then clapped out for drummer Charlie Watts, has made the song nearly impossible to replicate to any of the Stones' satisfaction on stage.
McKinley Morganfield (April 4, 1913 – April 30, 1983), known professionally as Muddy Waters, was an American blues singer-songwriter and musician who is often cited as the "father of modern Chicago blues", and an important figure on the post-war blues scene. Muddy Waters grew up on Stovall Plantation near Clarksdale, Mississippi, and by age 17 was playing the guitar and the harmonica, emulating the local blues artists Son House and Robert Johnson

On November 22, 1981, in the middle of a huge American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago for a three-night run at the Rosemont Horizon. On their night off, several of the Stones hit Buddy Guy's club, the Checkerboard Lounge, to see Muddy Waters and his band (which featured guitarist John Primer and harpist George "Mojo" Buford at the time). The whole thing was both recorded and filmed, and portions of the set began appearing as bootleg and unofficial releases almost immediately, and have continued to appear in various configurations ever since across all formats, from LP and CD to VHS and DVD. This set, though, was remixed and mastered for both audio and video by Bob Clearmountain, and stands to be the definite document of a very special night. Track Listing - Disc 1. Sample.
For Muddy Waters, the blues were a specific art, an art of emotional and musical exactitude. Each of his songs, whether he wrote it, forged it from traditional elements or learned it from his friend and fellow blues tunesmith Willie Dixon, meant something. THE CONVENTIONAL WISDOM REGARDING Muddy Waters is that he learned blues in the back country,. In 1958, he played the first electric blues heard in England and launched a rhythm & blues movement that gave birth to groups like the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds. At the Newport Folk Festival in 1960, he introduced young white America to his music, especially Got My Mojo Working, the showstopper that would be associated with him from then on.
The origin story of the Rolling Stones involves two albums – Rockin’ at the Hops by Chuck Berry and The Best of Muddy Waters – that Keith Richards spied Mick Jagger carrying on a Dartford Station train platform in 1961. I thought I was the only guy in the south-east of England that knew anything about this stuff, Richards recounted on a recent Netflix documentary. The Rolling Stones announce new album, Blue and Lonesome. The chance meeting had long ties to Chicago. The Rolling Stones would spend their early years covering the elder statesmen of Chicago electric blues and eventually making their way to Chess to record an album of their own. Fifty-five years later, the Stones entered British Grove Studios in west London and kicked out a new album in three days.
On November 22, 1981, the Stones were crossing the US on tour when they had a night off in Chicago. What to do? It was a no-brainer: Muddy Waters was in town, performing at his own club, The Checkerboard Lounge. Obviously, the Stones stopped in to check him out. Muddy soon called Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, Keith Richards and Ian Stewart (the band's touring piano player and one of its earliest semi-members) onto the stage, and the four Stones jammed with Muddy and his band to the delight of Muddy's lucky patrons. Luckily, it was all caught on camera and recorded. The 90-minute performance was mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain. This slice of history also will be released as a DVD/2LP vinyl set on September 11. Check out the track listings below.
The Stones’ fealty was perhaps never more evident than on November 22, 1981. While in town for a three-night stand at the Rosemont Horizon (now Allstate Arena), Jagger, Richards and Ronnie Wood sat in for a secret, guest-list-only set with Muddy Waters, the man who recorded Rollin’ Stone in 1950. Waters also called up Buddy Guy, Lefty Dizz and Junior Wells to the stage of the old Checkerboard Lounge on 43rd Street. The club closed in 2003, and relocated in ’05 to 5201 South Harper Court.
