HOWLIN' WOLF MEETS THE ROLLING STONES ON SHINDIG

Mr. Chester Burnett a.k.a. Howlin' Wolf live on Shindig, check out England's Newest Hit Makers in the background!  The Rolling Stones were guests on the show and insisted that the Wolf appear as well, what a contrast on a teeny-bop television show in the early 60's... how very audacious at the time!  Now the footage is a legendary piece of rock and roll history.

Originally recorded in Memphis in 1950 as a 78RPM on Chess Records, "How Many More Years and Moanin' at Midnight" was a major hit for Howlin' Wolf and sold 60,000 copies.
