Got Their Mojo Working (Back When Television Was a Vision)

Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson (II), Willie Dixon playing it cool.  Help with the others appreciated.  (Otis Spann on Piano?  Jimmy Rogers?  Help me!)  (Note that help arrived in the form of an "anonymous" tip from a trustworthy source.  See the comment below.  And thank you Fred!)

Great blog I always read it.

The Mojo clip was recorded during the American Folk Blues Festival tour in Baden-Baden, Germany, October 1963.
With Muddy, Sonny and Willie are Otis Spann, piano; Matt Murphy, guitar; Billy Stepney, drums.

Fred, thanks for the info-- and for kind words! For anywone who doesn't know yet, Fred is the author of "Long Distance Information, The Recorded Legacy of Chuck Berry." I wrote about it back there somewhere. (Use the search box!) It's a great book with lots of information and insight about Chuck Berry's audio and video recordings. Peter
