Chester Arthur Burnett known professionally as Howlin' Wolf was a Chicago blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player, born in Mississippi in 1910 and was one of the best known Chicago blues artists. He died in 1976 at age 65. Several of his songs became blues and blues based rock standards. He began playing with other blues performers as well as fronting his own band through the 1930's and 40's. In the fifties he began releasing several singles with his accomplished guitar player Hubert Sumlin, among others. Several albums followed in the sixties and early seventy's. His last album of original material was released in 1973. He also recorded the London Howlin Wolf sessions, which was one of the first super session blues albums and featured him performing with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, Hubert Sumlin, and Ringo Starr among others. He recorded
fourteen albums between 1959 and 1973, other releases and compilations have since been issued.
