We are starting a monthly Blues Artist of the Month feature.
As our first Blues Artist of the Month we are featuring Howlin’ Wolf (1910-1975), who was born 10 June 1910 near West Point, Clay County, Mississippi.
During the late 1920’s Howlin Wolf lived and worked on the Dockery Farm, the the Dockery Plantation, in Sunflower County, Mississippi.
Howlin’ Wolf made his first recordings for Sam Phillips at Memphis Recording Service (later Sun Recording Studio) in Memphis in 1951. Sam Phillips considered Howlin’ Wolf the most important artist he recorded.
