Friday Music / Howlin' Wolf 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso
Howlin’ Wolf (Chester Burnett) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal and stage prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago style blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide. With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began his career cutting early sides for Sun before landing in Chicago in the early-50s, where he began a long climb to the top of the blues world on the Chess label.
In 1962, he released his stellar self-titled masterpiece Howlin’ Wolf. Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary Jimmy Rogers and Buddy Guy on guitar, the masterful Otis Spann on piano, and Willie Dixon on bass, Howlin’ Wolf aka The Rockin’ Chair Album would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day Chicago blues history. Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits "Shake for Me," The Wolf continues to rock the listener through a treasure trove of 11 more blues standards like "Spoonful," "Back Door Man," "Wang Dang Doodle" and "The Red Rooster."
Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings. That is why they are so very proud to announce their first installment in The Howlin’ Wolf 180 Gram Vinyl Series with his legendary eponymous masterpiece Howlin’ Wolf, mastered by Joe Reagoso and housed in a gatefold cover with the original artwork elements and rare photos.
