Evil (aka Moanin In The Moonlight)

LP (Item 399393) Chess, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

About as classic as you can get for blues on Chess – a key early album from Howlin Wolf, featuring an array of great original tunes, all set to very spare accompaniment. Most tracks have a searing electric guitar rasping around underneath the vocals and harmonica work – and titles include "Smokestack Lightnin", "No Place To Go", "All Night Boogie", "Evil", "I Asked For Water", "Forty Four", and "Somebody In My Home". Album is a 70s repackaging of Moanin In The Moonlight – designed to look more "evil"!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s orange label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch and some light wear – vinyl is great!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
