That looks like one of the German shows...76 or 78? I think I have the76 show on a disc.. Backing track...not sure what I used, maybe one of the JimiLee Band tracks or maybe Mr Shoji made 1...it’s basically just a swinging shuffle would you say?
I actually saw this tour at this time at Waterloo Village in the foothills of the mountains in N.J.,Wow,what a blast from the past,Thanks for posting that it brings back fond memory,s with my wife of 45 yrs.Actually is was the only time that we got to see Muddy.Anyway I know that this cut is on the titled, Muddy Waters Woodstock Album,a slower version is on it but it has groove for days.If you have never heard the album its a great listen with multible guests.I don,t know if this will help but maybe listening to the record may help.All The Best

@BnT Far afield, but I always think of Harris when I think of Jordan. Thanks for the info though. I didn't know Brown wrote it. It wasn't on my Brown compilation CD. Apparently Harris covered other Brown songs, too.
Smaller combos were popular as big bands got too expensive. Big band ideas were repackaged in smaller combo formats, those ideas incorporated into new arrangements. And the beat goes on..
@kudzurunner Thanks for the Louis Jordan link!
Seems as though musicians have been recycling and repurposing songs a long time. ----------
Glad to see this post included reference to Louis Jordan - just the best - 113 weeks at #1, 18 with one song. His playing/riffs a great source for harp players looking to be innovative and tasty. B.B. King, besides doing a real nice album of Louie's has an online lesson-interview where he demonstrates his interpretation of a particular LJ riff. It provides good insight into the process. https://youtu.be/sMqRqVUyobM
Doug - if you go to Youtube to listen to Roy Brown's version of Lolly Pop Mama you'll understand why future labels left it off "best of" compilations - and be glad you didn't pay for it. Truly bad charts/horn section. ---------- BnT
