  • Howlin` Wolf - Second Album aka Rockin` Chair + 10 Bonus Tracks (CD)

    13,00

    Howlin’ Wolf was one of the greatest characters and most electrifying performers in blues history. He was an imposing presence, blessed with a thunderous voice, enormous physical strength, and a pair of lungs that would not quit.

    Wolf didn’t just startle audiences, he menaced them into submission. In addition to his powerful voice, he was also an accomplished harmonica player. Wolf was one of the first artists to figure out how to make thoroughly modern experimental music by emphasizing the most primitive elements of its ancestral roots.

    This quintessential collector’s release contains Wolf’s eponymous second album for Chess Records, Howlin’ Wolf (1962) – one of the all-time cornerstones of the Chicago Blues. The so-called “Rockin’ Chair Album” brings together some of the electric blues’ finest songs from the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, such as “The Red Rooster”, “Spoonful”, “Wang-Dang-Doodle”, and “Back Door Man”. In addition, this CD includes 10 bonus tracks (gathering a variety of those great sides Wolf recordedbetween 1952 and 1959), which together with this remastered gem represent the finest work of this blues master in his prime.
