    Sounds like Johnny borrowed a lot from Wolf's Highway 49:

    There are two studio versions as well; one was released in Britain originally. It's available on the "Blues" CD. I feel it is a superior version, but judge for yourself. They both sound as if they are near-identical takes from the same session.

    Johnny Winter was my hero in my high school years and before coming back to classical I collected all his CDs and listened to nothing but Johnny for three years. So please feel free to tell me I am posting too much Johnny Winter, but I can't help this one, his last solo acoustic song on his posthumously released album, Step Back.

    I have that album. Great album! Yes, that is a much better version of Red House than the one I posted. Jimi's music is like Bob Dylan's--little to none on You Tube. So I was stuck with a less than ideal selection.

    I think, though, that the Red House version I like best is the one off this album:

    Johnny Winter has done some great covers of Red House:

    I believe both Hubert Sumlin (Howlin Wolf's guitarist) and Johnny Winter both stole some of these licks from Elmore James' classic song.

    ^ Maybe Johnny borrowed it from Elmore. I don't recall Johnny talking about Wolf in his biography (Raisin Cain) but seems Elmore was mentioned.

    However Johnny did a Wolf cover. Love the lyrics: "I wore my 44 so long, it made my shoulder sore."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVkAU5VOorI

    And curiously there is another 44 song that is different. This I believe is an example of purosefully singing with slurred lyrics. No I don't think Johnny was just stoned. I have a bootleg concert where he was clearly drunk and it is nothing like this.
