The second album by Howlin' Wolf (also known as "Rockin' Chair") from 1962 is one of the most attractive examples of early electric blues, where pure feeling was conveyed. Yes, and here you'll also find straightforward versions of titles that have become classics in their genre: "The Red Rooster", "Wang-Dang-Doodle", "Spoonful" or "Back Door Man" leave no question unanswered. It's pure authenticity. A full ten bonus tracks (musically a bit weaker) fill the package. The issue contains a 16-page booklet with competent liner notes and some illustrations.
