POST: Bill WYMAN: Messing With The Blues in Montreux - Vol 1: Muddy Waters (28 June 1974)

Bill WYMAN
“Messing with the blues in Montreux”
Montreux Jazz Festival
28th June 1974 & 23rd July 1977

Volume 1: 28th June 1974
With Muddy WATERS
(restored from 3 sources)

This project is coming from audios and videos I got forwarded from nzb. The idea was to clarify the tracklists for the Montreux shows on which Bill Wyman was guesting with the famous bluesmen Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy.

Thanks to the ones who shared their recordings, in particular letsgo (audios from French radio) and FA (a video from French TV) and to BlueTurns2Grey for his help to declicked the letsgo source and to nzb for advice and inspiration.
……………………….
28th June 1974: MUDDY WATERS. Montreux, Switzerland, Centre de Congrès, ‘9th Montreux Jazz Festival’.
Line-up: BW (bass)/Muddy Waters (voc, gtr)/Buddy Guy (gtr)/Junior Wells (harm)/Terry Taylor (gtr)/Pinetop Perkins (p, voc)/Dallas Taylor (dr)

For this show we have 4 recordings:
Source #1: is a video published in 1991 'Messin’ With The Blues' (BMG Video 791 051) which contains 4 songs:
- Hoochie Coochie Man
- Mannish Boy
- The Same Thing, on which I deleted 23 gaps!
- Got My Mojo Working [+reprise] on which I deleted a gap at 0’15 & 1’10.

Source #2: 6 tracks appear on the ‘Blues By Year - 1974’-collection, published by ‘letsgo’ on Dime in April 2021 (sorry, I can't find the link anymore).
The concert was broadcast by a few assorted radio stations incl. France Inter. The sound is average and with a strong rumble. I deleted lots of noises and amplified the sound. The tracks that overlap with the official releases showed that this recording has to be decelerated by
-0,6%
- an instrumental blues and the band introduction by Muddy Waters
- a medley from ‘Still A Fool/Catfish Blues/She’s All Right’ on which I deleted or attenuated lots of flaws but many remained and cannot be deleted without ruining the track.
- ‘Howlin' Wolf’ on which I deleted a 5 second repetition at 2’03.
- ‘Electric Man’ (titled here ‘They Call Me Muddy Waters’)
- ‘Making Friends’
- ‘I'm Ready’
Note that these last tracks are incomplete.

Source #3: is a poor-quality video coming from an unknown French TV program. This video comes with lots of cuts but it’s very interesting because it includes the complete second part of the show and helps to determine the order of the played songs.

We have also 4 tracks released in August 2021 in the CD ‘The Montreux Years' (BMG BMGCAT519CD) with Jean Kaehr as sound engineer and the audio restored by Tony Cousins, but ‘Mannish Boy’, ‘I'm Ready’, ‘The Same Thing’ and ‘Electric Man’ will not be uploaded here because of the official release of them.

CD1:
The correct running order is not known 100% confirmed but using all these sources we assume it went like this:
01 - instrumental blues and band introduction by Muddy Waters (#2)
02 - medley: Still A Fool/Catfish Blues/She's All Right (#2)
03 - Howlin' Wolf (#2)
04 - Electric Man (#2)
05 - Making Friends (#2 & #3 for the 22 first seconds)
06 - Hoochie Coochie Man (#1)
07 - Mannish Boy (#1)
08 - Got My Mojo Working [+ reprise] (#1 & #3 for the 19 first seconds)
09 - The Same Thing (#1)
10 - I’m Ready (#2 & #3 for the 19 last seconds) faded in: the beginning appears in #3 but it deteriorates!
11 … encore break (#3)
12 - Kansas City (#3) (without Junior Wells) patched from 0’18 to 0’19 but 2 flaws remain from 0’27 to 0’29.

CD2:
Part I: rumble reduction:
The ‘Blues By Years’ source suffered from a strong rumble, I decided to use a slight rumble reduction (very slightly so it won’t alter the music).
01 - instrumental blues and band introduction (rumble reduction)
02 - medley: Still A Fool/Catfish Blues/She’s All Right (rumble reduction)
03 - Howlin' Wolf (rumble reduction)
04 - Electric Man (rumble reduction)
05 - Making Friends (rumble reduction)
06 - I'm Ready (rumble reduction)

Part II: merged version
To control the speed for the 2 videos sources, I tested a merge with ‘Hoochie Coochie Man’: both recordings are perfectly in synch. IMHO the result is interesting so I decided to add 3 of them as bonus (Mannish Boy, The Same Thing and I’m Ready were too much damaged in #3 to make a merged version interesting!)
07 - Making Friends (with patches at 0’09, 0’31, 1’18, 1’35, 5’52, 6’30, 6’37, 6’52 & 7’33)
08 - Hoochie Coochie Man (with the first 4 seconds coming from #3 and patched at 0’23)
09 - Got My Mojo Working (with the first 19 seconds coming from #3) with patches coming from #2 at 0’08, 0’19, 0’29, 1’14, 1’51 and 1’59.
