The blues has been a wellspring for rivers of pop, rock and R&B and there's nothing quite like returning to the source. In the mid-'60s, Chess Records released a series of legendary "best of" albums for Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson and Howlin' Wolf. Under each artist's name, The Real Folk Blues was issued in 1966 and a More Real Folk Blues in 1967 (though the latter album for Hooker wasn't discovered and released until 1991).

Now the two albums for each artist have been digitally remastered, conveniently combined onto one CD, with original artwork and liner notes plus a new historical essay. The four MCA/Chess/UME albums, all released March 12, 2002, are the latest additions to Blues Classics Remastered & Revisited, a major UME series of the most significant and popular blues albums in history.

The 24 tracks on Howlin' Wolf's Real Folk Blues/More Real Folk Blues show why the man who first recorded Wolf, Sam Phillips also the first to record Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley.

Howlin' Wolf's The Real Folk Blues features tracks from the late '50s as well as ones not yet a year old. The two constants are Wolf and guitarist Hubert Sumlin, whose partnership resulted in some of the most exciting blues of their era, from "Killing Floor" to Willie Dixon's "Tail Dragger"; 1956's "The Natchez Burnin'" to 1965's "Ooh Baby, Hold Me" and "Tell Me What I've Done"; Wolf's "Louise," "Poor Boy," "Sittin' On Top Of The World," "Nature" and "My Country Sugar Mama" to Dixon's "Three Hundred Pounds Of Joy" and "Built For Comfort."

His More Real Folk Blues offers a flashback beginning with 1953 Memphis recordings made before Wolf's move to Chicago and ending with tracks from 1956. The album is a unique treasure in modern blues with the signature tracks "I'm The Wolf" and "Rockin' Daddy" plus "Just My Kind," "I've Got A Woman," "Work For Your Money," "I'll Be Around," "You Can't Be Beat," "No Place To Go (You Gonna Wreck My Life)," "I Love My Baby," "Neighbors," "Who Will Be Next" and "I Have A Little Girl."
