I'm not sure how Charly got agreement to distribute Chess material in 1995 since Chess was also distributing in the UK at that time (I think). No matter, they did, and in the process managed to produce one of the best two CD best-of sets on the Wolf that I've seen.
CD1 takes us through the Memphis years (`51 to `53) with both sides of that fantastic first single plus several other tracks - the great "All Night Boogie" is within this batch. Willie Johnson stars on guitar on most of these. We then move onto the early Chicago tracks many of which were contained in the first Chess album "Moaning in the Moonlight". Then it's onto to that classic 60' to 61' period at Chess, as reflected by the Rocking Chair album with Hubert Sumlin occupying the lead guitar slot. Most of that album's tracks are collected here.
Then we get some of the later singles, "I ain't superstitious", "Tail Dragger", "Do the Do", "300 pounds of Joy", "Built for Comfort" and "Killing Floor". Most of these are brilliant, particularly the last. Finally we get four tracks from "London Howlin' Wolf Sessions" which was panned at the time but time has treated well judging by more recently expressed opinions.
So a very good and representative collection if you can get it for a good price. The value is increased by the presence of a bonus CD containing 16 tracks from some of the blues oldies - Robert Johnson, Sleepy John Estes, etc.
