MOANIN’ AT MIDNIGHT – The Life and Times of Howlin’ Wolf by James Segrest and Mark Hoffman. Review by James “Sky Dobro” Walker. The book Moanin’ At Midnight – The Life and Times of Howlin’ Wolf is perfect for a history buff who is also a fan of American music.

Howlin’ Wolf stands with Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker among the giants in the blues pantheon. The cheap "Moanin' at Midnight"/"Rocking Chair Album" twofer is also recommended. The albums included are two of my favorite blues albums ever.

Most of these tracks may be available in better quality elsewhere, but with the Wolf, sound quality isn't everything, IMO.

The power and the beauty of the music will probably come through even if you.
