Zydeco is a music genre that evolved in southwest Louisiana by French Creole speakers which blends blues, rhythm and blues, and music indigenous to the Louisiana Creoles and the Native American people of Louisiana. Though distinct in origin from the Cajun music of Louisiana, the two forms influenced each other, forming a complex of genres native to Louisiana.

Howlin' Wolf - Smokestack Lightnin'




Howlin' Wolf - vocal, harmonica

Wolf had performed "Smokestack Lightning" at least by the early 1930s while performing with Charley Patton in small Delta communities. The song, draws on earlier blues, such as Tommy Johnson's "Big Road Blues", the Mississippi Sheiks' "Stop and Listen Blues" and Charley Patton's "Moon Going Down." Wolf said the song was inspired by watching trains in the night: "We used to sit out in the country and see the trains go by, watch the sparks come out of the smokestack. That was smokestack lightning."
