Wang Dang Doodle-Howlin Wolf London Sessions 1971

I always liked the Koko Taylor version but this one is my favorite the London Sessions by Howlin Wolf with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Charlie Watts, and Bill Wyman released in 1971 but only revisted this album in 2015 and fell more in love with it now that I am older and appreciate the music and musicians for their craft and soul.

 

Here is the Chess records version below

 

Another version

Tell Automatic Slim, tell Razor Totin’ Jim
Tell Butcher Knife Totin’ Annie, tell Fast Talking Fanny
A we gonna pitch a ball, a down to that union hall
We gonna romp and tromp till midnight
We gonna fuss and fight till daylight
We gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
Tell Kudu-Crawlin’ Red, tell Abyssinian Ned
Tell ol’ Pistol Pete, everybody gonna meet
Tonight we need no rest, we really gonna throw a mess
We gonna to break out all of the windows, we gonna kick down all the doors
