Down homey blues from Howlin Wolf – not as funky as some of the other blues albums on Chess at the time, but with a nice rough and ready edge. Instrumentation includes a few guitars, tenor sax, piano, and bass – and Wolf himself plays a bit of harmonica – and the overall feel is very much in keeping with the kind of small club electric sets you might have caught on the south side of Chicago at the time. Titles include "Just Passing By", "I Don't Know", "Mean Mistreater", and "When I Laid Down I Was Troubled". (Cover has a cut corner.) © 1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc.
