Film information

Story: The latest installment of this encyclopaedic look at the '60s blues scene features the UK tour appearances by some of the Blues world's legends. The R & B movement in the UK, led by the likes of Cream, The Yardbirds and The Stones, had created a huge thirst for all things authentically American and bluesy. At the same time, the market in the US itself was waning as the new Motown and Stax soul sounds rendered the Blues a little 'dad-ish'. The old bluesmen found new wind, their careers taking second legs across the pond and young concert goers here were treated to a never-ending parade of the world's top blues men and women. Here, captured live in concert before adoring European audiences, are Lonnie Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Sugar Pie Desanto, Lightnin' Hopkins, Big Joe Turner with Otis Rush, Junior Wells and the inimitable blues nun, Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

Subject: Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, Howlin Wolf, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Junior Wells, Big Joe Turner, Sugarpie Desanto, Sonny Boy Williamson, Lonnie Johnson, Otis Rush
