HOWLIN’ WOLF

MESSAGE TO THE YOUNG

get on down



CD

Released: 9th Apr 2012

£11.99


this ‘71 release saw the legendary singer inspired by acid rock & funk to craft an essential psychedelic blues album.

marking a tumultuous yet historic year for the chicagoan blues master, ‘message to the young’ was recorded during a time of ill health for wolf during which he was advised by doctors never to perform again, but his single minded musical vision & feisty defiance led to the birth of an instantly beguiling, charismatic & experimental album. the title track is particularly humbling in hindsight, a beautiful spoken word ballad, urging the youth of the era to be true to themselves.
