TOP 500 REVIEWERon 23 April 2014
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.

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.

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.

Excellent collection, BUT this is s*** it's not factory CD, this is CD-R.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good the B sides were. Extremely good value for the price - and an auto-rip too!

Obviously I'm not keen on some of the numbers from this vast collection but good value for money!
