Howlin 'Wolf - Moanin' In The Moonlight (180g) (Limited Edition)
"Moanin 'in the Moonlight" is the first studio album of the American blues musician Howlin' Wolf, which appeared in 1959 at "Chess Records". Strictly speaking, it is a compilation album that collects material that was previously released as a single. This is why the album has an unusually high number of different musicians.
"Moanin 'in the Moonlight" was Wolf's first LP. To date, his reputation had been based on different singles. Not all recordings on the album were produced by the brothers Chess and / or Willie Dixon. Two songs ("Moanin 'at Midnight" and "How Many More Years") were recorded by Sam Phillips at "Sun Records". "Chess Records" bought these recordings in order to be able to publish them.
The album is considered to be one of the most important and / or best releases of the Chicago Blues. The "Rolling Stone" currently lists 154 of the "500 best albums ever". "Allmusic.com" rated it with five out of five possible stars.
Almost all songs were written by Chester Burnett, alias "Howlin 'Wolf". On the original edifice the author of the song "Forty-Four" is spoken to Wolf personally, in fact the piece is from the pen of Roosevelt Sykes, who had recorded it as "44 Blues".
