Howlin’ Wolf – Smokestack Lightning

7 Jul

Time for some blues. At 6′ 6″ and about 300lbs, his voice and presence is/was unmistakable. He was one of the many iconic artists (Muddy Waters, Little Walter,  Buddy Guy, etc) that recorded with Chess records. Here’s one of his more recognizable songs. I’ll post the actual video since the performance is definitely worth watching. These guys were so good back then.
