Sam Cooke - Little Red Rooster


A smooth counterpoint to Howlin Wolf's prior hardcore rendition. Recorded in Los Angeles in 1963 with session guys. Billy Preston playing incredibly well and expressively on the Hammond B-3, Ray Johnson tinkling the keys, Hal Blaine on drums. Although not listed, many believe that Barney Kessel is playing guitar on this track. Not sure of the bass player. Carol Kaye? I really like the occasional tasteful repartee between piano and organ.
