In 1965 he appeared on the television show Shindig with the Rolling Stones.

What Howlin’ Wolf didn’t confess was that the night, the cold, the nature, the train and the light assaulted his huge body with the memory of a woman. And that hurt to the howl.

Here are all the elements of Smokestack Lightning, which would be recorded for Chess in 1956 with Hubert Sumlin on lead guitar, backed by Willie Johnson, Willie Dixon on bass, pianist Hosea Lee Kennard and drummer Earl Phillips. On harmonica and howls, Howlin’ Wolf:
