The blues has been... the blues is... the blues will be around forever. The blues vary in many ways, and the legendary sound of Howlin' Wolf has been often imitated but never duplicated. No one has been able to match his ferocity of spirit; it is a sound unique to the man.

An imposing figure at 6'5', Howlin' Wolf had the ability to simultaneously rock the house and scare the patrons. The Real Folk Blues is an anthology of sides cut by Howlin' Wolf for Chess between 1956-1963. Wolf fused the primitive energy of traditional country blues artists with the over-amped explosiveness of the modern electric blues.
