Koko Taylor – Wang Dang Doodle (Live in 1967)

Tell Automatic Slim / Tell Razor Totin’ Jim / Tell Butcher Knife Totin’ Annie / Tell Fast Talkin’ Fanny / Tonite we’re gonna pitch a ball / Down to that union hall / Gonna romp and tromp ’till midnight / We’re gonna fuss and fight ’till daylight / We’re gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long!

“Wang Dang Doodle” is another brilliant song from Willie Dixon, one of the most influential songwriters in American music. Howlin’ Wolf covered it, but Koko Taylor’s vocals always get me on this song. Here she is singing it as part of the American Folk and Blues Festival in 1967.
