The cover photograph of Muddy Waters holding John Lee Hooker's guitar gave the impression that he was at a folk festival rather than the prestigious Newport Jazz Festival. However, the record revealed the King of Chicago blues at his very best, shouting his music above the discordant wail of a band that included Otis Spann, James Cotton, Pat Hare, and Francis Clay. Film of the event shows a sharply dressed Waters shimmying and jiving around the stage with the energy of a man half his age. Some of that atmosphere is apparent on the record, in a program that includes "Hoochie Coochie Man", Big Bill Broonzy's "I Feel So Good", then-recent singles "I Got My Brand on You" and "Soon Forgotten", and a massive "Got My Mojo Working". The set ends in poignant mood with the announcement of the end of the festival and Otis Spann's improvised "Goodbye Newport Blues".
