Chester Arthur Burnett (June 10, 1910 – January 10, 1976), known as Howlin' Wolf, was a Chicago blues singer, guitarist, and harmonica player, originally from Mississippi.

CHICAGO: With a booming voice and imposing physical presence, he is one of the best-known Chicago blues artists. Chicago blues is an electric blues style of urban blues. Urban blues evolved from classic blues following the Great Migration, or the Great Northern Drive, which was both forced and voluntary at times, of African Americans from the southern United States to the industrial cities of the north, such as Chicago.

SMOKESTACK LIGHTNING: is a blues song recorded by Howlin' Wolf in 1956. It became one of his most popular and influential songs. It is based on earlier blues songs, and numerous artists later interpreted it. Wolf had performed "Smokestack Lightning" in one form or another at least by the early 1930s, when he was performing with Charley Patton in small Delta communities. 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."

EVIL IS GOIN’ ON: is a Chicago blues standard written by Willie Dixon. Howlin' Wolf recorded the song for Chess Records in 1954."Evil" became Wolf's last charting single. The lyrics caution about the "evil" that takes place in a man's home when he is away, concluding with "you better watch your happy home".
