5.0 out of 5 stars A superb overview of Howlin' Wolf's recordings(1951-1962).
This marvellous 3-CD set contains 64 'A' & 'B' sides in chronological order recorded for RPM & CHESS in Memphis or Chicago between 1951 & 1962. In addition there are 16 tracks from 1951-1953 which were not released as singles.
Howlin' Wolf's intensely powerful and primal singing is well displayed on these 80 tracks with stellar sidemen such as Willie Johnson, Hubert...

This review is from: Howlin'‘ Wolf: The Complete RPM & Chess Singles As & Bs 1951-62 (Audio CD)
This marvellous 3-CD set contains 64 'A' & 'B' sides in chronological order recorded for RPM & CHESS in Memphis or Chicago between 1951 & 1962. In addition there are 16 tracks from 1951-1953 which were not released as singles.
Howlin' Wolf's intensely powerful and primal singing is well displayed on these 80 tracks with stellar sidemen such as Willie Johnson, Hubert Sumlin, Otis Spann, Willie Dixon & Earl Phillips.
Howlin' Wolf aka Chester Burnett(1910-1976) had a huge influence on many British blues/rock musicians in the '60s. This collection is a superb overview of the first decade or so of his recordings and an affordable alternative to the hard-to-find HIP-O SELECT 4-CD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be Moaning at Midnight or Crying at Daybreak if you invest in this., 18 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Howlin'‘ Wolf: The Complete RPM & Chess Singles As & Bs 1951-62 (Audio CD)
After having only one HW compilation CD for nearly 20 years decided to buy this excellent 11 year overview of the great man's recordings between '51 and 62. Excellent value for money at £10 or so for 80 recordings. Confident that (God willing) I'll still playing this in 20 years time.

Treat yourself.

Brilliant collection of all the Howl' Wolf sides that matter. Alongside Muddy Waters as my top rated blues musician. Powerful blues from a mighty singer with a great band urging him on. Highly recommended.
