Blues on a Saturday: Muddy Waters "Got My Mojo Working"

Muddy Waters performing his classic "Got My Mojo Working" at the 1960 Newport Jazz Festival. There are some great shots of the crowd throughout. Muddy performs san guitar. At the end of the clip he grabs the emcee for a little dance.

The tune has become a blues cliche, degraded by thousands of bar bands. Here it is when it was still fresh.
