This is an in-concert recording made by Johnny Winter with Muddy Waters and James Cotton for the Boston radio station WBCN, and recorded at the Boston Music Hall, in Boston, Massachusetts, on 26th February 1977. By 1975, Winter had grown tired of working in the rock and roll mainstream and returned to his first musical love - The Blues. Teaming up with Muddy Waters he released the album Hard Again in January 1977 with this concert following shortly after. It is a wonderful, vivid, febrile encapsulation of a Bluesman enjoying his renewed career. With harmonica hero James Cotton on board, along with the bedrock of Waters' regular touring band, you get value-addedness to gems such Freddie King's "Hideaway", before Winter takes the microphone on "Blues With A Feeling", burnishing the sound with his inimitable lead guitar sizzle. "Mannish Boy" is a gutsy delight with Waters' laconic vocal topping off the hearty Bluesy crunch in magisterial style.
