Format: Audio CD
Howlin' Wolf's earliest, pre-Chicago material was his best, by far, and this CD proves it. All of these tracks were recorded at Sun Studios, and they feature powerful and brilliantly minimalist blues music unlike the more assembly-line Chicago stuff that has been allowed to epitomize the genre. In a perfect universe, Wolf would have made ten times this many records while in Memphis, and each and every master tape would have survived intact. That didn't happen in our universe, but let's be thankful for the Early Wolf that HAS survived. Savor Willie Johnson's distorted guitar, particularly the nimble runs on "The Wolf is at your door" and the economic but dazzling genius of his lead work on "Howlin' Wolf boogie," the intro to which I haven't yet recovered from. And, lest anyone doubt that rock and roll existed long before it had a name, behold Johnson's amp-busting power chords on 1951's "How many more years," a track that renews itself every one hundred listenings or so. Wolf's voice is allowed full reign on these recordings, possibly because, at Sun, Wolf was allowed to play what he wanted to play without endless interruptions and Leonard-Chess-style admonitions of "Keep it simple." At Sun, Wolf was playing the actual music, not someone's hackneyed notion of what it was supposed to sound like. You might prefer these early sides. Or you might like them as much as the later material, or not as much. No matter. Just buy it.

If you love early electric blues and rock'n'roll, this is for you! This CD (along with Vol. 1) presents Howlin' Wolf's earliest recordings: his voice is in fine form and his bands (personnel on these recordings vary a bit) rock. Particularly interesting to hear guitarist Willie Johnson deliberately using amp distortion, possibly for the first time on record. GREAT roots music! I've been a fan of Wolf's for a long time but I'm a fan all over again after listening to these recordings.

It's interesting to hear Wolf's two tone vocal ability, more obvious on these Memphis recordings than on his later stuff.
It's cool to hear what he did pre-Chess, even though there isn't much organisation or direction in these tracks.
However, if you want to hear his raw feral power.. and who doesn't.. buy the Chess recordings.
They are famous for a very good reason. They are his best.
