Evil (aka Moanin In The Moonlight)

LP (Item 399393) Chess, Early 60s — Condition: Sealed
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

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.
(Sealed 70s pressing! Cover has a cutout mark.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.
