Howlin' Wolf Howlin' Wolf (aka The Rockin' Chair Album) on Limited Edition Import 180g LP

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, the 12-track set (comprised of six singles previously released by the Chess label from 1960-1962) has gone 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 blues standards like "Spoonful," "Back Door Man," "Wang Dang Doodle" and "The Red Rooster."

Because of the illustration on its sleeve, the album is often called The Rockin' Chair Album, which was eventually adopted on subsequent pressings.
