CD Reviews

Faulty liner notes and inferior sound
Mark C. Hoffman | Bainbridge Island, WA United States | 06/21/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Faulty liner notes on this CD, hence only two stars. The notes claim it was recorded in Bremen, Germany in 1964, but half the cuts are outtakes from the "London Sessions" of 1970. And the sound on this is somewhat inferior to "Howlin' Wolf: Live in Europe 1964" on the Sundown label. Get that CD if you can to hear a good reproduction of what Wolf sounded like on his first European tour, backed by Hubert Sumlin, Sunnyland Slim, Willie Dixon, and Clifton James.
