27. Little Red Rooster (Swan Lake)

A curious resident, Jack Flaut, stopped by to listen to Eddie and Frank as they recorded Bukka White's Special Streamline in Swan Lake. He said that a friend of his, Old Sam, had told him that he remembered hearing Howlin' Wolf singing, coming back across the old Tallahatchie River Bridge from Sharkey. Jack pointed the way down through the woods to where the bridge used to be. Off they went. In the shadow of part of the old bridge, with Tallahatchie water lapping the bank, Eddie and Frank did Howlin' Wolf's Little Red Rooster.
