SMOKESTACK LIGHTNIN' * HOWLIN' WOLF * PYE INTERNATIONAL 7N 25244 * GB

Howlin' Wolf, what a name, I once sited him as one of my seven wonders of the modern world. He's one reason to always be vigilant; proving Gods do walk among us, . . ."look out.... the woof is in your town". I don't know what 'smokestack lightnin'' is and I don't ever want to (for some reason I've always had an image of burning haystacks) for me, it is, in the words of  Walter Benjamin, a messianic shard.
