If they put lipstick on that pig it would still be...a pig!

Ditttttto! ...well, except I played their LP last month. A cornerstone of my dusty slightly disturbing collection of 5000 or so albums!

We've heard from all of those the Lil Red Rooster influenced. Now, howzabout some Howlin Wolf?!

Excellent, Bill.  Got that album framed and hanging on the wall of my den... a classic.  More is acceptable.

Not the only album by this group. They release a followup a year later in 1970, "Getting to This". Not as good as the first album but a few good tracks. Ditto the request for "See My Way" from the first LP — one of the great rock guitar solos of all time.

Blodwyn Pig!  Great!

My kids think I'm nuts, when I play the other track from this album that I like ... "See My Way" ... which as the album jacket (album jacket?) notes indicated, strikes some folks as having some similarity to Ravel's "Bolero".

Add my thanks to all the thanks below ... and please consider playing "See My Way" sometime ... thanks!
