Smokestack Lightning - Watermelon Slim

Legbamel Not-Pop

Despite his classic blues name, Watermelon Slim is a hale and hearty white man from Oklahoma who still performs live to this day. I couldn't find a good video of my favorite of his songs with The Workers, Juke Joint Woman, so I'm including this impressive (and well-described) video of him playing Howlin' Wolf's Smokestack Lightning.
