Howlin’ Wolf – Down In The Bottom

Posted on Updated on

The fearsome Chester Arthur Burnett –the Howlin’ Wolf, aka ‘Tail Dragger’– with one of those blues numbers only the originator could reproduce. The blues is full of fine vocalists, but none can match The Wolf’s bellow, like putting on a scratchy record of coon dogs hunting and turning it all the way up. This recording was released in 1961.

Well now meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well now meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
When I come out the window I, won’t have time to lose.
