If You Don't Like This Song, I Don't Like You, Vol. 4

Sorry for the lack of entries lately. I've been busy with work (boo!) and social life (yay!).

But in any case, here's another edition of If You Don't Like This Song, I Don't Like You. This time it's blue singer/harmonicist Howlin' Wolf, one of my favorite blues singers. The song is "Killing Floor" from 1964, and features a blistering guitar part by Hubert Sumlin. The song has been covered many times, and of course Led Zeppelin lifted the guitar part for "The Lemon Song" only five years later. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you... Howlin' Wolf
