The bedrock of Hubert Sumlin's career was a two-decade stint in Chicago with the great Howlin' Wolf, where he was responsible for the searing guitar lines on monumental tunes such as "Smokestack Lightning", "Back Door Man" and "The Red Rooster". Following a certain amount of physical tension with the Wolf, Sumlin briefly defected to the Muddy Waters band. It's that period which informs this new recording, with most of its tunes penned either by Waters himself, or Chess Records' renaissance man Willie Dixon.
