THE LONDON HOWLIN’ WOLF SESSIONS is an album by blues musician Howlin' Wolf released in 1971 on Chess Records, and on Rolling Stones Records in Britain. It was one of the first super session blues albums, setting a blues master among famous musicians from the second generation of rock and roll. With a booming voice and imposing physical presence, Chester Burnett a.k.a. Howlin’ Wolf is one of the best-known Chicago blues artists. The London Sessions was one of the series of recordings produced by Marshall Chess, nephew of Phil Chess, who, with his brother Leonard, started Chess Records. Four sessions recorded in May 1970 with Eric Clapton and Hubert Sumlin on guitars, Steve Winwood on piano, the Rolling Stones’ rhythm section (Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts) – and a quasi-Beatles’ rhythm section chipping in (!) (Klaus Voormann with an uncredited Ringo Starr) playing the blues and the 19 year old Jeffrey Carp, (who died shortly after this session) were among those appearing on the album. The ‘London Sessions’ is essential blues.

You won't find this album anywhere on CD except for this pricey gold disc version, which is pretty sneaky of MCA, but also means it sounds great! This is the album that paired the Wolf with British blues-rockers Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman, Steve Winwood, Charlie Watts, etc. with terrific results. Also includes tracks from the never-reissued Muddy and the Wolf: London Revisited album. For the casual blues fan with a scant knowledge of the Wolf, this 1971 pairing, appears on the surface to be one hell of a super session. But those lofty notions are quickly dispelled once you slip this disc into the player and hit play. While it's nowhere near as awful as some blues purists make it out to be, the disparity of energy levels between the Wolf and his U.K. acolytes is not only palpable but downright depressing. Wolf was a very sick man at this juncture and Norman Dayron's non-production idea of just doing remakes of earlier Chess classics is wrongheaded in the extreme. The rehearsal snippet of Wolf trying to teach the band how to play Willie Dixon's "Little Red Rooster" shows just how far off the mark the whole concept of this rock superstar mélange truly is. Even Eric Clapton, who usually welcomes any chance to play with one of his idols, has criticized this album repeatedly in interviews, which speaks volumes in and of itself.
