Muddy Waters arrived in Boston on June 15, 1976, where he was met with open arms by city mayor Kevin White. During Muddy Waters's appearance at Paul's Mall that night, the mayor proudly proclaimed June 15 Muddy Waters Day. Muddy Waters has his invaluable band behind him here with Pinetop Perkins, "Steady Rollin'" Bob Margolin, Calvin "Fuzz" Jones, Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson, Jerry Portnoy, and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith. With a staggering combination of fluency and bite, they take on numerous chunks of Muddy Waters's iconic songbook. Muddy Waters's legacy is almost unmatched, not only in terms music, but also in terms of the fabric of a whole generation and the culture it came to define. Echoes proudly presents the entire original WBCN-FM broadcast of Muddy Waters and his band live from Paul's Mall, Boston, MA, on June 15, 1976 (Muddy Waters Day). Professionally remastered original broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
