Raven presents the only live document from the blues master Howlin' Wolf: Live and Cookin' at Alice's Revisited (originally released on Chess in 1972). The physically imposing and powerfully voiced Howlin' Wolf was one of the most important exponents of the tough electric blues "Chicago Sound" of the 1950s, having recorded such classic sides as 'Smokestack Lightning', 'Killing Floor', 'Back Door Man' and 'Little Red Rooster'. During the 1960s he influenced numerous artists from the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds to Cream, the Doors and Captain Beefheart. By 1972 he still commanded a huge live following. With his crack backing band (including guitarists Hubert Sumlin and Willie Williams) in stunning form, the Wolf charges through electrifying versions of 'Mean Mistreater', 'Call Me The Wolf' and 'Sitting on Top of the World'. His performance is one of the most riveting ever captured on analogue tape. With two stellar bonus tracks, 'The Big House' and 'Mr. Airplane Man', over 65 minutes of electrifying Chicago blues and detailed liner notes this CD is an indispensable release for the serious blues aficionado.

aka Howlin Wolf.it's from the early 1970s and the Wolf only has a few years left among us mortals.
he's in his 60s here and his voice,while still so powerful it blows me away,isnt quite the same as the one
who sang Little red rooster and Smokestack lightning(these aren't included.none of his "hits"are).
however,this recording is gritty and the more weary voice fits the material well.
the musicianship is ace of course,lead guitarist Hubert Sumlin shines as always.
this is one helluva live recording.
it sparkles and ,yes,cooks.
it's also unique in that it's very hard to find live recordings by Howlin Wolf
of acceptable quality.this is heavier than any of todays rock n roll band.
it's rawer than most music in general.
more recommended than your average.
This doesn't really have his best hypnotic songs on it, but there aren't many 'live' albums out there of his. So fun to listen to.
