Biography

The blues has been a wellspring for rivers of pop, rock and R&B and there's nothing quite like returning to the source. In the mid-'60s, Chess Records released a series of legendary "best of" albums for Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson and Howlin' Wolf. Under each artist's name, The Real Folk Blues was issued in 1966 and a More Real Folk Blues ... Read more in Amazon's Howlin' Wolf Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, mediocre sound, lousy packaging September 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's a shame that this recording of Howlin' Wolf's November, 1964 concert in Bremen, Germany is plagued by mediocre fidelity. If the sound had been just a little better, "In Concert" (which has been issued under at least four different titles) would be one of the greatest-ever live blues albums, right up there alongside "Muddy Waters At Newport".

Wolf is backed by his legendary lead guitarist Hubert Sumlin, drummer Clifton James, pianist extraordinaire Albert Luandrew (Sunnyland Slim to you and me), and supposedly Willie Dixon on bass, although not all sources agree about that. It does sound like Dixon's upright bass, though. And this impressive combo, which has Wolf himself playing rhythm guitar and a bit of harmonica, groove their way through a tough set of the grittiest electric blues you'll ever hear:
A driving "Shake It For Me", featuring some jackhammer drumming by Clifton James, opens the set, followed by the slow grind of "May I Have A Talk With You" (which Wolf introduces as "Love Me"), and tremendous renditions of "Dust My Broom" and "I Didn't Mean To Hurt Your Feelings". The latter is one of the most amazing slow blues I have ever heard...Sunnyland Slim is fantastic, Sumlin plays a terrific solo, and the rhythm section is rock-solid yet wonderfully supple.

The swaggering instrumental "Rockin' The Blues" is a nice showcase for the band, and the second half of the album features the up-tempo shuffle "All My Life", and a slow, stately "Going Down Slow" (Willie Dixon is credited for "bass & speech", and he did do the spoken intro on Wolf's - inferior - studio version, but this live rendition has the Wolf himself doing all the vocals.

By Fritz L
Format:Audio CD
This CD looks to be a 9 track version of the Howlin' Wolf Live Gold CD (Fine Tune 2212-2) which has 14 tracks and appears to be available through Amazon Marketplace (the first nine tracks are in identical order on both CD's). From listening to the samples on Amazon the sound quality of the 9 track CD appears to be the same since as the Fine Tune version. The Fine Tune audio quality is not all that good, may not really be live, but it is the Wolf, after all. Thought fair warning was in order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicago blues...Miss'sippi style December 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a long time fan of the performers and artists that came up from humble beginnings to emerge as the preeminent and dominate leaders in southern blues from the Delta to Georgia, Memphis-style to swing and there is just about no other force in blues history like the one and only Howlin' Wolf. It is nearly indescribable. You simply have to listen to understand when it takes you back to the deep south at a time when drinking fountains had labels and which side of the street you were on could mean the difference between living and dying. Of course, nobody can walk in the shoes of a bluesman, but if he does his job right, and Howlin' Wolf certainly did/does, he will put you in a good mood as you can feel the pain in his voice as the blues comes through it.
