It’s not often that an album disavowed by its own
author at the time of release goes on to become considered
a modern classic. Yet that’s exactly what
happened with Chicago blues legend Howlin’ Wolf’s
1969 LP The Howlin’ Wolf Album, a release that has
since attained mythical status due to the controversy
behind it.
Released on Cadet Records, a subsidiary of legendary
imprint Chess Records, The Howlin’ Wolf
Album was a radical experiment for a wellestablished
artist: attempt to integrate electric instruments
and psychedelic arrangements into his revered
signature blues sound. The result was an album that
Wolf himself initially disregarded on the nowinfamous
cover, but one that has won a special place
amongst dedicated music aficionados thanks to its
unique mix of traditional blues and electric rock elements.
Get On Down’s reputation for high quality reissues
continues with The Howlin’ Wolf Album, which
features a special Stoughton vinyl pressing with
audio remastered from the original analog tapes for
optimum sound quality and comes packaged in a
paste-on style jacket featuring the album’s famous
original artwork.
