Screw coffee. What this morning needs is a double shot of the blues. Dig on this 1966 clip of Howlin’ Wolf tearing through ’Dust My Broom‘ during some downtime at the 66’ Newport Folk Festival. And yes, that’s Son House doing the hand jive at the beginning of the clip. You heard me: Son House.
Double points awarded for the Howlin’ Wolf filming being set up by none other than Alan Lomax.
Thanks to the ever-awesome WFMU blog for the finds.
