Howlin' Wolf: Moanin' in the Moonlight (LP, 180g Vinyl)

(Blues Joint) 18 tracks, 180g vinyl

Wolf's debut album - oddly enough, released after his second album - contains all of his early hits (“How Many More Years”, “Moanin' at Midnight", "Smokestack Lightning", "Forty Four", "Evil” and "I Asked for Water [She Gave Me Gasoline]") and is a pretty strong collection in its own right.

“Moanin' In The Moonlight” is the follow-up album (which is always referred to as "the rocking chair album” because of Don Bronstein's distinctive cover), on which the equally strong duo of Willie Dixon and Wolf produce one Chicago blues classic ("Spoonful", "The Red Rooster", "Back Door Man", "Wang Dang Doodle") after another. On these wonderful sides, you can also clearly hear lead guitarist Hubert Sumlin becoming a legend of blues picking.

Howlin' Wolf was the primal force of blues music. He was an imposing figure, blessed with a thunderous voice and enormous physical strength. Like his friend and rival Muddy Waters, Wolf transformed the archaic country blues of Mississippi into the electric urban blues of his adopted home of Chicago. Presented here is his outstanding debut album for Chess Records, “Moanin' in the Moonlight” (1959) - one of the cornerstones of the genre of all time.

Howling Wolf

Come Back Home

The first two bars set the tone for the entire record. That very countryish guitar figure will work its way through the chord changes of this 12-bar blues. It's the glue that holds this performance together.

If you listen closely, you'll recognize the tone on that guitar (a pleasant blend of acoustic and ampli- fied) from Track 12. It's blues combo man Willie Johnson, who made his greatest mark as Howlin' Wolf's lead guitar player. And the vocalist here is none other than Chester Burnett, a/k/a The Howlin' Wolf.


The track is called Come Back Home, a title that could have been replaced by half a dozen other phrases from the song. This is little more than a string of vocal blues clichés, made distinctive by the Wolf's vocal stylings (he could have recited the Helena phone directory and gathered a crowd) and the repetitive force of John- son's guitar figure. The truth is, the con- tinuity of that figure is the only thing to suggest this performance is a "song" and not merely a blues jam.
