  • Description

    Limited edition 180g blue coloured vinyl, original album + 4 bonus tracks. 'Moanin' in the Moonlight'was Howlin' Wolf's first collection of sides for the Chess label, packed with great tunes and untouchable performances.

    One of the all-time cornerstones of the genre, Moanin' in the Moonlight(1959) features several of his early hits ('How Many More Years', 'Moanin' at Midnight', 'Smokes­tack Lightnin', 'Forty Four', 'Evil', and 'I Asked for Water [She Gave Me Gasoline]'), a po­tent collection to say the very least!

    Born Chester Burnett (1910-1976), and named after President Chester Alan Arthur, Howlin' Wolf had blues credentials so authentic they seem parodic. As a teenager in the Mississippi Delta, he pestered Charley Patton (Mississippi's seminal blues singer) for lessons, and took on Patton's grainy voice and powerful, elemental slide guitar style. In the '30s and '40s, he became one of the Delta's many wandering entertainers, using the nom de guerre (Howlin' Wolf) he derived from a childhood nickname.

    Description

    180gram VIRGIN VINYL LIMITED EDITION - THE COMPLETE ALBUM + 6 BONUS TRACKS. Howlin' Wolf (Chester Arthur Burnett 1910 - 1976), was the primal force of blues music spun out to its ultimate conclusion. He was an imposing presence, blessed with a thunderous voice and enormous physical strength. Like his friend and rival Muddy Waters, Wolf transformed Mississippi's archaic country blues into the electric urban blues of Chicago, his adopted home.

    Presented here is his outstanding debut album for Chess Records, Moanin' in the Moonlight (1959) - one of the all-time cornerstones of the genre. It includes the hit single Smokestack Lightnin', issued by Pye Records in the UK in 1964, where it peaked at number 42 in the singles chart.
