12th October
written by Matt The Cat
This week, Harlem goes moanin’ in the moonlight with…

He has a sound that was all his own. A sound that is as original today as it was back in 1951 when he burst on the scene. He learned guitar from the legendary Charlie Patton and harmonica from the influential Sonny Boy Williamson. Put those influences together with his natural growl and you have Howlin’ Wolf. This week, Matt The Cat will look at Wolf’s early work with Sam Phillips in Memphis along with the world famous sides that he cut with the Chess Brothers in Chicago. Hear the Cat prowl with the Wolf, all week on Harlem.
