Howlin' Wolf London Sessions

This was a big hit when it came out in '71. Having as your pickup band, Charlie Watts, Stevie Winwood, Bill Wyman and Eric Clapton aint too shabby. Hearing Wolf teach Eric Clapton how to play the guitar on Red Rooster is worth the price of the album. This album, was, I thought, the best of the London collaborations.


I was expecting nothing to show up when i typed the howlin wolf sessions into your search engine. This truly is a milestone for i-tunes and displays your passion and comitment for great music, Thanks so much !

King certainly more technical expertise, but no one could match him for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out...
