Muddy Waters' first *set last
n i g h t wasn't that good, yet
everyone knows the next sets
will be better. It's the same old
story: musician arrives in town,
tired, has to play his first set
anyway, barely warms up, breaks
for second set, and reviewer
writes about how blah every-
But things will improve. The
crowd will react better. Muddy
will be higher, drinking his $9
champagne, and everything will
work out fine. As a great blues
band performs in a new, im-
proved Alley where the chairs
line the walls leaving the middle
floor space clear - for people to
stretch out and move in.
The band-incredibly good-
especially Paul Oscher, doing it
on harp, Pinetop Perkins piano-
ing well. Everybody was good
and Muddy even better. How-
ever, nobody got off on it. Mud-
dy was brought down by the lack
of response from his audience,
and played a quick set.
Friday night first sets are
what I'm talking about. It's too
bad those are the ones that get
So, there's rno guarantee that
Last night it was all so bleary.
For sure, Muddy will pull it all
together - crowd and all. the
music is for certain to becout-

exciting. It'll be worth the. prie,

Muddy will play as well as he
did at Hill Aud., that'd be pretty
hard, but there's the definite
possibility that things will turn
out to be what one would ex-
pect when Muddy Waters plays
a small coffeehouse. Dynamite.
When Muddy played at Hill
he .-had everybody going nuts,
dancing, and in general digging
it. By some sort of logic the
Alley should be an easier place
in which to excite a crowd than
big old Hill Aud.
There used to be reasons why
the Alley was a bum place-be-
ing hit with pinball commer-
cials, cinema commercials, and
cider announcements just when
you wanted to get into some

music and away from all that.
Well, now there is some of that
Canterbury House aura, there is
a chance to break in the Alley,
and do it right.
With Oscher screeching and
belching on his harp-(I say
belching because I'm tired of
moaning) and Muddy carrying
on that mysterious dialogue be-
tween his voice and his guitar,
and Pinetop smiling and pound-
ing on the piano, and everybody
high, the Alley will fall to the

crowd. N o b o d y got up and
danced, nobody did anything,
and there wasn't any demand
for an encore.
To judge solely the musician-
ship is a worse trip. There's ab-
solutely nothing to say without
