Howlin' Wolf - mesmerizing live performance, 1964

Here's the great Howlin' Wolf in concert in London, performing "Smokestack Lightnin'" and "Don't Laugh At Me":


That's the legendary Willie Dixon on bass and the dynamic Hubert Sumlin on lead guitar. I'm not sure, but I think the drummer is probably Sam Lay, who played with Wolf at the time. Maybe somebody else has that information.

3. Fantastic.

I actually got to see Howlin’ Wolf and Willie Dixon live in the early ’70s. Wolf was winding down some by that time, but it was still a “pinch me, is this real?” Kind of experience. Mind blown.
