Wolf's Success

Advertisement

Howlin' Wolf performs "Highway 49" at the Washington D. C. Blues Festival in 1970 featuring Sunnyland Slim (piano), Hubert Sumlin (guitar), Randy Joe Fullerton (bass), and S. P. Leary (drums).

Unlike many other blues musicians, after he left his impoverished childhood to begin a musical career, Howlin' Wolf was always financially successful. Having already achieved a measure of success in Memphis, he described himself as "the onliest one to drive himself up from the Delta" to Chicago in his own car traveling the blues Highway and with four thousand dollars in his pocket, a rare distinction from many blues men of the time.
