Little Red Rooster – The Song

‘Little Red Roosteris the Rolling Stones interpretation of the blues standard credited to arranger and songwriter Willie Dixon. The song was first recorded in 1961 by American blues musician Howlin’ Wolf in the Chicago blues style. The Rolling Stones were among the first British rock groups to record modern electric blues songs. In 1964, they recorded “Little Red Rooster” with original member Brian Jones, a key player in the recording. Their rendition, which remains closer to the original arrangement than Cooke’s, became a number one record in the UK and continues to be the only blues song to reach the top of the British chart. The Stones frequently performed it on television and in concert and released several live recordings of the song. “Little Red Rooster” continues to be performed and recorded, making it one of Willie Dixon’s best-known compositions.

The Rooster – The Shape

This record is modelled into the silhouette of male chicken. A cock or rooster is the adult male chicken, Gallus gallus domesticus. A younger male may be called a cockerel. There are numerous cultural references to cocks and cockerels, in myth, folklore and religion, in language and in literature. Cockerels are probably best know for their loud crowing which they notoriously do at daybreak making them unpopular birds in built-up areas. Cockerels almost always start crowing before four months of age. Although it is possible for a hen to crow as well, crowing is one of the clearest signs of being a cockerel. The Chicken has a distinctive comb on the top of its head and under the beak are two more fleshy lobes of skin, one on each side. These are called the wattles. They’re larger in males, and their size and shape differ according to breed. The wattles are usually red, although in some breeds, they can be blue, maroon, black, or other colours. evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
