Howlin' Wolf (Chester Burnett) will always be known as one of the founding fathers of modern day blues. His legendary style of playing guitar, his unique vocal and stage prowess and of course his stellar list of classic Chicago style blues tunes have all gone on to influence generations upon generations of rock and blues performers worldwide.

With almost six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native began his career cutting early sides for Sun before landing in Chicago in the early '50s, where he began a long climb to the top of the blues world on the Chess label.

In 1962, he released his stellar self-titled masterpiece Howlin' Wolf. Featuring an all-star band with the likes of the legendary Jimmy Rogers and Buddy Guy on guitar, the masterful Otis Spann on piano, and Willie Dixon on bass, Howlin' Wolf a/k/a The Rockin' Chair Album, would go on to become one of the most revered albums in modern day Chicago blues history.

Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits "Shake for Me," The Wolf continues to rock the listener through a treasure trove of 11 more blues standards which made this one of the most important blues LP's of all time. The album features classic gems like "Spoonful," "Back Door Man," "Wang Dang Doodle" and "The Red Rooster." All of these blues rockers became truly a blueprint for a ton of rock and blues giants for years like Cream, The Doors and The Rolling Stones.

Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry) for the first time on audiophile vinyl from the Chess monophonic tapes, Howlin' Wolf is a limited edition reissue masterwork with a stunning gatefold cover featuring the original artwork elements as well as rare inside gatefold photos of the man who helped fuse blues and rock music for millions of music lovers across the globe.
