Built for comfort! Great to hear the Wolf again. I had his vinyl albums in the 60s. This collection covers all the bases and includes all his signature tunes from 1951 to 1965. These are the original versions of Smokestack Lightnin', Spoonful etc, not the disappointing re-recordings released in 1970 with the Wolf trying out a wah-wah guitar sound. This is the guy that turned thousands of white college kids onto the blues...notably one Don van Vliet (later Captain Beefheart, who modelled his vocal style on the big guy's! If you recently heard the man for the first time and want to find out more - get this.
