Description

Recorded May 2-7, 1970 at Olympic Sound Studios in London, “The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions” was a bold attempt at recording an original blues master alongside members of the “new” generation of rock ‘n’ rollers. An impressive selection of guest musicians appear on the record, most notably Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts. Also of note are the unplanned appearances of Ringo Starr on drums – credited only as “Richie” – and Klaus Voorman on bass, as Watts and Wyman were unavailable on the first day of recording. The resulting LP is a spectacular snapshot of such epic collaboration and set the standard for blues “super session” albums for years to come.

Much like the album’s distinctive sound, “The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions'” cover art is instantly recognizable. That’s why, for this very special definitive release, Brookvale Records turned to the prestigious Stoughton Printing Company for the album’s jacket. Completely customized inside and out for this newly remastered classic, the “Old Style” Tip-On Gatefold Jacket replicates the stunning texture and quality of the 1971 original down to every detail. The new clear foil stamping overlaid on select portions of the artwork – a custom technique utilized for the first time on this jacket – adds a modern touch. Only a meticulously crafted work of art such as this is truly worthy of the blues classic contained within
