    Jimmy "T-99" Nelson: I heard a version of this on an LP collection that I no longer have. This is slightly different, but it's got that "recorded at 4 AM" vibe. And while I love hot guitar, this song is about the vocals.



    Elmore James:



    Willie Dixon: Love background vocals on the blues!

    I heard Taj Mahal's band with six tubas years ago in Hartford, but I couldn't find a clip of the band on Youtube. This is Arthur Blythe's band, with Bob Stewart on tuba.

    EllroyJames, thanks for that video of "the Wolf with his pups". I'd never seen that or the Robert Ward one from mojo2001. That vibrato soaked clean tone is amazing and I'm gonna listen to that one at least 126 more times.

    Thanks to dmarg1045 for posting that great Willie Dixon tune.

    Seeing all the Howlin' Wolf reminded me of this Hubert Sumlin video:

    I ran across this gentleman this evening as was absolutely blown away. Here's one video, but the other few are just as good. For what it's worth, there's a whole series of videos posted by the same Youtube user that are apparently from a 1978 documentary - there's a ton of good stuff.
