Muddy Waters & Rolling Stones – “Champagne And Reefer”

I got an email from a college buddy telling me about a great Blues song he just heard, “Champagne and Reefer.” I couldn’t believe that in 60+ years, he’d never heard that Muddy Waters classic! I passed 3 states’ bar exams and after every one my friends and I celebrated with champagne and reefer – except the time we had hash. This is Muddy Waters with the Rolling Stones doing “Champagne and Reefer” from that famous night at the Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago in 1981. I’m not going to tell you I was there but I was living in Chicago and out that night and drove past the Checkerboard Lounge. Believe me, I was pissed the next day when I found out what I missed!
