Howlin’ Wolf – Moanin’ In the Moonlight (Marble Arch MAL 665)

Two budget label buys in two days, but as with yesterday’s purchase, this is a worthy exception since  I only had a few Howlin’ Wolf tracks spread around a like number of blues compilations (with at least two copies of “Spoonful”). The fact that this second British issue of the Wolf’s debut Lp (actually a compilation of singles) omits the original lineup’s “All Night Boogie” and “Forty Four” doesn’t take away from the raw beauty of the music. First water electric Chicago blues, this is the real deal.

BTW, how much did Captain Beefheart appropriate in tone and delivery from Howlin’ Wolf?

  1. Getting hooked on these Marble Arch lps. The more I look the more I find.

    • I got decent Woody Guthrie comp by them, so far that’s it.
