    Well-known for his role in Chicago blues, Sumlin performed with Howlin’ Wolf from 1955 until the singer’s death in 1976, after which he continued performing with the late blues legend’s band under the moniker The Wolf Pack and released a string of solo albums to varying degrees of success.

    His playing style, characterized by sudden bursts of noise, start-stop patterns and use of sustain, was achieved without the use of a traditional guitar pick and was a formative influence on the style of The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. His frequent use of abrasive, shattering noise also inspired rock icons like Jimi Hendrix to experiment with guitar tone.

    Hubert Sumlin - Blue Shadows

    4:30

    Hubert Sumlin arguably did his best work during the 23 years he was Howlin' Wolf's guitar player, and his ragged, angular guitar style was a big part of Wolf's rough-and-ready sound.
    So says Steve Leggett speaking of the disc that this song is taken from. And he may be right. Sumlin *was* very good at the side of Wolf. But he was good as well with his own band - as in Blue Shadows.

    A great Bluesman has passed away.
    May he rest in peace.
