I’ve been streaming a lot of late 60s/early 70s soul music recently, and it’s always a nice bonus surprise (happens pretty frequently) when I play an album without looking at the track titles and am soon confronted with a Beatles cover. For this 1970 Martha And The Vandellas release, I didn’t have to wait at all: “Something ” cover is side 1/track 1

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

What we have of Howlin’ Wolf’s 2 May 1970 session at Olympic which featured Hubert Sumlin on rhythm guitar, Eric Clapton on lead guitar, Klaus Voorman on bass, and Ringo (credited as “Richie”) on drums. I Ain’t Superstitious (which added Steve Winwood on piano) was released on The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions, while the alternate take, along with Goin’ Down Slow (with Jeffrey Carp on harmonica) and I Want to Have a Word with You were released on London Revisited. All are now available on the 2003 deluxe edition of The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions.

Ringo Starr : Two memories are that Howlin’ Wolf was incredible! And his guitarist [Sumlin] – he had this guitarist with him who was just so fuckin’ incredible. Eric was on the sessions and he just let the guy take it, y’know. It was really a moment to see, Mr. Guitar himself bowing to this guy who really played the way [Eric] played.

Norman Dayron (Chess producer): …A bigger problem on the first day was that Charlie Watts, who Eric had organised for the session, couldn’t be there. I think Bill Wyman did show up, but he was not keen to play without Charlie. We put out an urgent call for musicians and the first pair to turn up were Ringo Starr and Klaus Voormann. 

Klaus Voormann (bassist): Bill Wyman was definitely there that first day. I remember because I was surprised by how talkative he was. I’d only seen him on stage where he stood there with a straight face. 

Norman Dayron: Bill was very keen to support the project but Ringo and Klaus knew each other and had played together often, so they were the obvious choice for that first day. 

Klaus Voormann: Wolf sat on a chair, but there was no control coming from him. In fact, there was no control from anywhere. I remember the whole band sitting there after having played a few takes.

Howlin’ Wolf was staring at the floor, sitting there like a statue, not moving an inch. He gave us no comment, so we didn’t know, “Was it good? Was it bad? What shall we do?”

Eventually, Ringo very cautiously spoke into the drum mike in the direction of the control room: “Shall we try it a little…”

At that point, Howlin’ stopped Ringo by lifting his right hand, with his left pointing at the control room, saying, “He’s the producer.”

Norman Dayron: I was kind of pushy, so all through the sessions, when people would look to Wolf and ask for guidance, he would say, “Ask Norman. He knows what he wants. He’s the boss.” They had to ask me. 

Klaus Voormann: Once we got started, Wolf took the microphone off the mike stand, walked up to us, bending down real close, looking us in the face with his dark eyes, singing his arse off. What power! What magic. What a great guy!

Ringo Starr : He was great. He was the Wolf Man. He was Howlin’ fuckin’ Wolf! We had all the baffles around the drums and I had the cans on and my eyes closed, playing to him and then suddenly it just seemed a bit… the air was hot coming across my face and I looked up and he was right over the baffles singing, right into me and the drums, so he didn’t care about separation and I love that. So they’re the memories. He was just, y’know, a gentle giant on those sessions. 

Norman Dayron: Ringo and Klaus caught on right away to what we were trying to do. One of the best songs on there, I Ain’t Superstitious, features Ringo and Klaus. They did a good job.

I went to a gig this afternoon that was advertised as Bluegrass, but turned out to be a local Blues/Rock band. It was so much fun. They were playing their hearts out, and not getting much attention, you could see the change in their body language when me and my group strolled up and really watched. They played some oldies (I remember they mentioned Johnny Lee Hooker), but they never played any that the Beatles covered. They finished with Sweet Home Alabama, which I’ve been learning on my bass!

The whole thing made me really really want to be in a band.

That’s awesome! I went to a Billy Strings concert recently and he’s a sort of prog bluegrass guitarist, and at one point he played “Rocky Raccoon ” -– I went nuts lol a-hard-days-night-john-6 really made me want to get my band back together too.

Anyway I’m listening to this album by… some band from the 60s… it was released on this day in 1964

Thanks Ron, that place looks so inspirational. It’s strange, I remember hearing Don’t Know Why on an online daily jazz program from the UK months before it hit in the US. Because of that, for years I thought she was a British artist.

Supremes’ debut, released in the USA same month as the final Star-Club gigs. Interesting for the “Meet the…” title – and indeed, the UK version released in ’64 subbed some tracks from their 2nd release, just like Capitol records themselves. I think I’ve seen a photo/film clip of one of the boys (or Brian) holding this album. (definitely seen a picture of them holding “Supreme’s a go-go” from 1966, but possibly this one too.)

(Someone should start a “Beatles holding records” thread in the pics forum, for lazy vinyl fetishists like myself here)
