Muddy Waters & The Stones: Please Don't Go, 1981

On 22 November 1981, in the middle of their mammoth American tour, the Rolling Stones arrived in Chicago prior to playing 3 nights at the Rosemont Horizon. Long influenced by the Chicago blues, the band paid a visit to Muddy Waters' club the Checkerboard Lounge to see the legendary bluesman perform.http://smarturl.it/Muddystoneslpdvdcd It didn't take long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart were joining in on stage and later Buddy Guy and Lefty Dizz also played their part. It was a unique occasion that was fortunately captured on camera. Now, restored from the original footage and with sound mixed and mastered by Bob Clearmountain, this amazing blues night is being made available in an official release for the first time.

Behind the Scenes: Red White and Blues

BB King, Mick Jagger, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Keb Mo and many others come to the White House in a celebration of the blues. Take a look inside the rehearsals and hear what artists had to say about being at the White House and the magis that is blues music. As President Obama said, "this music speaks to something universal. No one goes through life without both joy and pain, triumph and sorrow. The blues gets all of that, sometimes with just one lyric or one note.
