Howlin’ Wolf : The Real Folk Blues

Today’s album of the day is The Real Folk Blues by Howlin’ Wolf

Chester Burnett ranks as the most intimidating performer I’ve ever seen! Originally released in 1966, this album contains many of Wolf’s singles from ’56 to ’66. Every track is a classic – powerful singing and the sublime guitar of Hubert Sumlin.

My favourite tracks:

  • Sittin’ On Top of the World
  • Killing Floor
  • Taildragger
  • Three Hundred Pounds of Joy
