Does one of you know why Mick didn't participate on the recording? Not even playing harp?
It's a great album. Other than the self-proclaimed purists I love it.
To me Chester Burnett /Howlin' Wolf was one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, of all
these fine blues-musicians who influenced the British music scene back then.

BTW here's a quote from Bonnie Raitt talking about Howlin' Wolf:

oh man, I read that quote and thought, damn, is Mick a big homo.  It bothered me so much I went back to re-read, a bit more carefully, and thankfully saw that the quote is attributed to Bonnie Rait...whew...

Which part of your self-image is threatened by the idea of Mick being "a big homo"?  Hmmmm?

What was wrong with him?



He had a car wreck in 1970 which severely damaged his kidneys. He had a few heart attacks too. He was on dialysis at the time of London Sessions, and he died of kidney failure in 1976.
