Waters and Wolf do not perform together on this disc. The first half, recorded in Chicago, features Muddy backed by some of his regular '60s band members plus '60s U.S. blues-rockers Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield. Wolf occupies the second half, taken from the LONDON HOWLIN' WOLF SESSIONS album. He's backed by British blues-influenced rockers including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and the Stones' rhythm section. Despite the booklet's photo of Muddy and Wolf together, the notoriously paranoid Wolf had always regarded Muddy as a rival.
Despite their personal differences, Waters and Wolf were linked by their undeniable status as the prime architects of Chicago blues. The thematic tie here is their interaction with the generation of players who they inspired. As Muddy retains most of his usual band, his cuts differ little from his other late-'60s recordings (which is to say that they are eminently soulful and cathartic). Wolf's cuts are marked by the rock supersession vibe, but the assembled rock royalty manage to keep their egos in check, ably providing their hero with the angular, biting attack that is his trademark sound. This isn't the place to start with either Muddy or Wolf, but it's a more-than-interesting sideline to their careers.
