Four years before Smokestack lightnin’


#127

Remarkably similar and it was recorded in 1952 (yes, 4 yrs before Smokestack Lightnin’) but Wolf had been performing Smokestack since the early 1930’s so I guess it’s a case of who copied who. Since Adams didn’t begin a recording career until 1950’s I suspect this was influenced by Smokestack rather than the other way around.

YMMV :grin:


#128

Additionally, Wolf recorded (In 1951) “Crying at Daybreak” - basically Smokestack Lightnin’ under another name.


#129

Agreed, cross pollination occurs on the live circuit. The thing is this recording was released four years prior which does pose an interesting copyright question.


#130

See above recorded in 1951

1 year before Woodrow’s song


#131

Apparently Woodrow Worked with Howlin’ Wolf from late 1940’s. Wolf was was the elder so it may be as you suggest


#132

Indeed, Wolf taught him to play the blues harp apparently.


#133

The closeness of the relationship explains much I learned something new today


#134

Have you read Moanin’ at Midnight - Wolf’s biography?

It’s marvellous. Talk about a tough upbringing, his was off the scale.


#135

I’d certainly like to - added to the book list


#136

Well worth it :+1: I couldn’t put it down, but there again, I’m a massive Wolf fan.

Onions…


#138

For the parents of toddlers out there…

(As an explanation for everyone else, the people behind teletubbies and In the Night Garden have found their stocks of hallucinogens again.)

Mr. Onions! His philosophy is admirable, Onions!
