When I was a young kid growing up in Florida my parents brought home an album with a rocking chair on the cover. This is the famous "rocking chair" Howlin' Wolf album. It's probably the best blues album ever recorded, but it goes beyond blues. The arrangements are amazing, the playing incredible, and the vocals are...Howlin' Wolf. All I knew about Chester Burnett was that I loved this record. The biography is excellent, truly a labor of love. Howlin' Wolf was not only a remarkable singer and performer, but a highly organized bandleader and a very intelligent man. If you can find it, get the video, it is a great companion to this wonderful book.
