Product Details

Summary

1971 marked a tumultuous yet historic year for Chicago blues legend Howlin' Wolf. His health failing after suffering a second heart attack, doctor's discovered his kidneys were also shutting down and he was ordered on dialysis to save his life. Wolf's doctors demanded that the legend quit performing at all costs, but the legendary blues musician did not have any quit in him. Three months after being ordered never to perform again he was headlining opening night at the Ann Arbor Blues Festival. 1971 also marked the release of Howlin' Wolf's second experimental offering, "Message To The Young". Oft-considered his second attempt (after the "Howlin' Wolf Album" he famously shunned) at offering the masses a "psychedelic" record, the sound on the record ranges from acid-rock, to blues, to funk, and back again. The title track on "Message To The Young" is exactly what the title suggests; Wolf's attempt at reaching the youth of the era in a beautiful spoken word ballad which can easily be summed up in two words "Be Yourself".

Get On Down's reputation for high quality reissues continues with Message to the Young, originally released on the newly formed Chess Grt label, a subsidiary of legendary imprint Chess Records. This all new 2012 Get On Down version features audio painstakingly remastered from the original master recordings for a true high definition sound experience. And for those who prefer to groove with grooves, a vinyl reissue is slated for April.
