Blues week continues…
one of my favorite blues records is the Howlin Wolf London sessions with Winwood, Clapton, Watts, and Wyman. They did it back in '71, all the players at the top of their game.
Half Cream, half Stones, all Wolf. Get it if you don't got it.
Blues critics hate it, by the way, and I recall Clapton was down on it as well, but I dunno, I play it all the time.
That was the first blues record I ever bought. Still have the vinyl somewhere...
Eamonn Walker was simply amazing playing Howlin' Wolf in Cadillac Records. His version of "Smokestack Lightnin'" kicked sixteen kinds of booty...
Here's a link to Walker doin' the Wolf....
Awesome!! Am Loving Blues Week, hows about some Sonny Boy Williamson up next, please?? :)
6) Read my mind, bro...got any suggestions?
If you listen closely to those London sessions with Clapton and the other guys, it sounds a lot like they're patronizing the Wolf. My take on it, anyway, and it always leaves me uncomfortable. Old Chester left plenty of older, better stuff for us to listen to.
