Married to the niece of Howlin Wolf, Diane, Jesse was taken over by Willie Dixon when he had founded his own independent label Yambo. Willie was desperate to promote imitators of blues greats. Sanders, who occasionally imitated Howlin Wolf was renamed Little Wolf by Dixon, the death of true Howling Wolf, he wrote in 1976 and registered the superb 45t wont The wolf howl no more that had a small success juke boxes in Chicago. In the aftermath, Willie has produced a whole album, homemade (the covers were hand-glued by Dixon himself on the box and the text is peppered with many misspellings!)
