Editorial Reviews

It's not often that an album disavowed by its own author at the time of release goes on to become considered a modern classic. Yet that's exactly what happened with Chicago blues legend Howlin' Wolf's 1969 LP The Howlin' Wolf Album, a release that has since attained mythical status due to the controversy behind it. Released on Cadet Records, a subsidiary of legendary imprint Chess Records, The Howlin' Wolf Album was a radical experiment for a wellestablished artist: attempt to integrate electric instruments and psychedelic arrangements into his revered signature blues sound. The result was an album that Wolf himself initially disregarded on the nowinfamous cover, but one that has won a special place amongst dedicated music aficionados thanks to its unique mix of traditional blues and electric rock elements. Get On Down's reputation for high quality reissues continues with The Howlin' Wolf Album, which features a special Stoughton vinyl pressing with audio remastered from the original analog tapes for optimum sound quality and comes packaged in a paste-on style jacket featuring the album's famous original artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars A small miracle August 23, 2012
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I bought this album when i was 14. no cd exists. I was amazed to find this vinyl, a limited re release, unopened. Im still a little stunned. So ive not just purchased a record, but a heap of memories also.

Freight time was reasonable, packaging very good and seller is a very pleasant bloke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Howlin' Wolf goes electric June 15, 2011
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I first bought this record in San Francisco in 1969 and played it until it was worn out. When I saw a chance to replace it, I jumped on it. I really expected a CD, but the vinyl has a much richer tone than you can get on a CD, so I'm thrilled to get that sound back again. Listen to the old classics on it: Smokestack Lightning, Little Red Rooster, Spoonful, etc., and hear them as they SHOULD sound. The price is right, and the sound and content are great; Amazon has done it again, so go for it!
