What's not to like about this great Howlin' Wolf track?
I heard this one for the first time the other week, fantastic isn't it?
I've been saving 'The Howlin' Wolf Story' for an evening where I have a few hours to really sit and soak it in, can't get enough of the big man at the moment! Thanks for sharing!
One of my favourites:
Yes, fantastic. Another of my favourites:
Hubert's really flying in that solo!
There's a good version of 44 Blues, seguing into another Wolf song, How Many More Years, on the first Little Feat album. And I'm guessing that the title of one of their albums, Hoy Hoy, comes from a line in 300 Pounds of Joy, "Hoy hoy I'm Your Boy".
Yes he is!
The legend lives on. I love the guy! Thanks for sharing these tunes all!
Not my favorite Howlin' Wolf song by any means, but one of my favorite recordings of Hubert Sumlin c. mid 60s:
Some of my favorite Wolf stuff is the Sun and Ace recordings from his pre-Chicago days, with the wildly distorted Willie Johnson on guitar.
Ah wow, thanks very much for the link, I'm going to listen to that as soon as I get in. I really like the Little Feat stuff that I've heard and Lowell George's playing in particular but have never really delved into their stuff!
Put this on and walked away
From across the room I thought
What is that...
Gary US Bonds
His voice really reminds me of Captain Beefheart.
Definitely see what you mean, but I'd have put it the other way round . I think both the Captain and Lowell George (in his early days) were enthralled by the Wolf's voice.
Also, Peter Green with Fleetwood Mac covered three Wolf songs excellently: Sugar Mama, Ooh Baby and How Many More Years, though Green didn't try to emulate the Wolf's growl.
Thanks for posting these. Both Hubert and Willie Johnson were so good!
