Biography

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

Product Description

Product Description

It's not often that an album disavowed by its own author at the time of release goes on to become considered a modern classic. Yet that's exactly what happened with Chicago blues legend Howlin' Wolf's 1969 LP The Howlin' Wolf Album, a release that has since attained mythical status due to the controversy behind it. Released on Cadet Records, a subsidiary of legendary imprint Chess Records, The Howlin' Wolf Album was a radical experiment for a well established artist: attempt to integrate electric instruments and psychedelic arrangements into his revered signature blues sound. The result was an album that Wolf himself initially disregarded on the now infamous cover, but one that has won a special place amongst dedicated music aficionados thanks to its unique mix of traditional blues and electric rock elements. Get On Down's reputation for high quality reissues continues with The Howlin' Wolf Album, which features a special Stoughton vinyl pressing with audio remastered from the original analog tapes for optimum sound quality and comes packaged in a paste-on style jacket featuring the album s famous original artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Howlin' Wolf Album 17 Mar 2014
By XBBX
Format:Audio CD
It's strange seeing this album receive a relatively low level of interest from Amazon customers when it's so incredibly similar to Electric Mud by Muddy Waters, an album which draws a consistantly high Amazon rating and a high level of customer interest.

With which in mind, I feel it only fair to review this release by way of comparison.

Electric Mud and The Howling Wolf Album were recorded around the same time for the same record label, with near-enough the same musicians and the same team on production, with each album sharing a concept; take one vintage Bluesman and jump-start him into the minds of the hip young audience of the day by giving him a Funked-up Acid Rock sound.

Yet although the end result was a pair of albums sounding almost like two-halves of one complete body of work, I would argue the Howlin' Wolf release is distinctly the superior of the pair.

From a purely musical perspective the band sound more in the pocket with Wolf, tighter and more focused, leaving their playing on Electric Mud to come across more as a warm-up for the main game. In both cases the rhythm section set up a firm groove throughout, but its sometimes too loose on Electric Mud. Similarly, the guitar on the latter spends a hugely unneccessary amount of time soloing, as if a deliberate attempt was being made to over-emphasise how "weird" and "wacked out" the kerazy new modern sound was. Yet on the Howling Wolf Album the guitar tends to focuse on holding a rhythm or locking into a groove with the rhythm section, creating a sequence of powerful crawling riffs which at times verge on becoming hypnotic.

Put simply, the band rock harder with Wolf.

From a purely vocal perspective Wolf sounds threatening, dangerous, belligerent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experimental Wolf 13 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not his usual style, but he is still good. Songs revamped and done in a completely different way, experimental project, which for me works well. You need to play a few times, but the sounds gets under your skin. Very unusual album. Wolf makes some great sounds. Morris Jennings on drums is one for the books, great. A collection must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece of heavy, dirty blues by the Wolf 7 May 2014
By Pinto
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
A true master piece of dirty, groovy, psychedelic blues by non other than the mighty Howlin Wolf.
Be sure to check out Muddy Waters' Electric Mud for similar vibes.
