Sam Phillips was devistated by the news that the Wolf was going to move to Chicago. It just spoiled all his plans to back Howlin' Wolf as the main man from Sun records (Memphis,Ten). After the Wolf left, Sam decided to back the young trucker named Elvis. Howlin' Wolf had a hat full of tunes pooring out of his head years before he ever recorded, some tunes we will never hear. You will find a lot of the available CDs carry the same cuts, except for this one. THUNDERING music from the source. When Sam Phillips said of the Wolf, "this is where the soul of man never dies" these were the recordings he spoke of. The two voices from his throat, the terrible piano runs, the dirty guitar, and the drums like popping balloons. You will be able to listen to these cuts a million times over and always find yourself startled to your foundation.
