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 ... Read more in Amazon's Howlin' Wolf Store

About the Artist

Feast your ears with raw and dirty Blues from one of the most influential Blues musicians that ever walked the planet. The second volume in the 'Memphis Days' series collects all the known Memphis recordings that were either issued or originally offered to Chess Records. As such, it stands as a marvelous collection of Wolf's early 78s for that label. But what truly puts it over the top is the added bonus of a newly discovered acetate featuring several unissued versions of 'How Many More Years' and 'Baby Ride With Me (Riding in the Moonlight)'. The great sound and the performances make it a must-have. Also available on vinyl: Memphis Days: The Definitive Collection, Vol.1

Visionary producer meets innovative bluesman - what could possibly go wrong? Nothing! and nothing does on this superb set of early blues from the Wolf. How many more years, Baby ride with me, Moanin' at midnight, The wolf is at your door, all on the Sun label. How much emotional history can you take? Essential listening. Buy it now along with Vol. 1.

Just buy it. 23 Nov. 2001
By Lee Hartsfeld - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Howlin' Wolf's earliest, pre-Chicago material was his best, by far, and this CD proves it. All of these tracks were recorded at Sun Studios, and they feature powerful and brilliantly minimalist blues music unlike the more assembly-line Chicago stuff that has been allowed to epitomize the genre. In a perfect universe, Wolf would have made ten times this many records while in Memphis, and each and every master tape would have survived intact. That didn't happen in our universe, but let's be thankful for the Early Wolf that HAS survived. Savor Willie Johnson's distorted guitar, particularly the nimble runs on "The Wolf is at your door" and the economic but dazzling genius of his lead work on "Howlin' Wolf boogie," the intro to which I haven't yet recovered from. And, lest anyone doubt that rock and roll existed long before it had a name, behold Johnson's amp-busting power chords on 1951's "How many more years," a track that renews itself every one hundred listenings or so. Wolf's voice is allowed full reign on these recordings, possibly because, at Sun, Wolf was allowed to play what he wanted to play without endless interruptions and Leonard-Chess-style admonitions of "Keep it simple." At Sun, Wolf was playing the actual music, not someone's hackneyed notion of what it was supposed to sound like. You might prefer these early sides. Or you might like them as much as the later material, or not as much. No matter. Just buy it.

Not famous for a good reason 27 Jan. 2014
By rousseau - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's interesting to hear Wolf's two tone vocal ability, more obvious on these Memphis recordings than on his later stuff.
It's cool to hear what he did pre-Chess, even though there isn't much organisation or direction in these tracks.
However, if you want to hear his raw feral power.. and who doesn't.. buy the Chess recordings.
They are famous for a very good reason. They are his best.
