Song #22: Evil

Howlin_Wolf__public_domain_

After meeting Charlie Patton, Howlin Wolf became Patton’s pupil and started playing guitar and singing, and they would later perform together. Howlin Wolf’s music mixed Delta country blues and Chicago electric blues. His deep growly voice is what always stood out for me. “Evil” came out late in his career in 1969 and would be his last single to chart.
