This is 1981 and MAGGIE BELL & MIDNIGHT FLYER have just completed a European tour supporting AC/DC.
Their album ‘Midnight Flyer’ has just been released on the infamous Swan Song label and they were now playing some European dates on their own including an appearance at The Montreux Jazz Festival on 8th July 1981.
On the bill that night were also TAJ MAHAL and ALBERT COLLINS both of whom appear with Maggie on stage.

...the highlight of the busy year came in mid-summer, as Flyer climbed onto the Montreux festival stage and ripped through one of the best shows of their all-too-brief career. Live Montreux July 1981 features the bulk of their show that day, as the band rips through its set, then is joined for two numbers by blues legend Taj Mahal and by the Telecaster master Albert Collins for a further pair.
It was a phenomenal show, the sound quality exceptional, and the band at its very, very best. Unforgettable.

Talk about the unrealized potential yet, without this recording the history of modern British blues can't be complete.

As live albums go, this is up there with the very best: listening to it, you really do feel that you're at the gig.
Classic Rock Society (Dec 2007)
It's a typically gritty and uncompromising affair...
Kevin Bryan, Stirling News (Dec 2007)
...rather raw and bautifully sounding live recording seems to do more justice to the band's unrelenting blues-rock than its confined studio counterpart...
Anyone who appreciates early Led Zeppelin should give this album a listen, if only to hear the female equivalent of Plant rocking with the mostest. 8/10
