Luther Allison. Little Red Rooster. 1975.

A Chicago transplant by way of Arkansas, Luther Allison is one of those cold-hearted dudes that shreds ear holes for nothing more than a simple selfish pleasure. He learned his chops playing behind guys like Howlin' Wolf and James Cotton before Muddy Waters gave him his big break in 1957. That's some pretty heavy company, and Luther Allison is one heavy player. Buy Love Me Mama and Bad News Coming Down. Commence face melting.

*This video is a poor edited mash-up of Little Red Rooster and what I think is a track entitled I Need Your Love.
