Goin' Home: Live in Paris 1970 Review

by Thom Owens

Goin' Home: Live in Paris 1970 finds Muddy supported by his longtime backing band -- guitarists Pee-Wee Madison and Sam Lawhorn, pianist Pinetop Perkins, bassist Calvin Jones and drummer Willie Smith -- as well as harpist Carey Bell on several tracks. Waters performed many of his familiar numbers -- "Honey Bee," "Trouble No More," "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Mojo Workin'" -- in front of a small French crowd, and while the performances aren't crackling with energy, they have a nice, relaxed and friendly vibe that makes the album worth checking out.
