HOWLIN' WOLF - Blues Greats

2011 compilation that celebrates Blues music and the artists who have made a huge impact on the genre. Without the Blues there would be no Rock 'n' Roll, no Rock music nor almost every kind of popular music that's listened to today. The Blues continues to influence contemporary music and has inspires musicians of all generations to embrace its emotion. Howlin' Wolf, born Chester Burnett, put three records on the Billboard R&B chart in the '50s, including 'Smokestack Lightning'. He was influential to many white aspiring Blues musicians including the Rolling Stones, who took a cover of his 'Little Red Rooster' to the top of the UK charts. Howlin' Wolf died in 1976, having left his larger than life mark on the blues for all that followed him.
