REVIEW:

In just a few days at the beginning of May 1970 in London a frail Howlin Wolf played   some sessions with the crème of British Blues Scene including Eric Clapton, Stevie Winwood, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, Ian Stewart etc. The recordings came out as The London Howlin Wolf Sessions and later some more on London Revisited. In March 2003 a double cd expanded edition was released as well showing more tracks from those sessions. Before that a bootleg cd from Japan   offered further documents. The collection starts with a shortened version of "Who's Been Talking" also known as "Cause Of It All" with more harp than the official first take, then the classic "The Killing Floor" from London Revisited followed by another classic "The Red Rooster" that has alternate piano. "Poor Boy" has here an alternate mix with different lyrics while on "Built For Comfort" there are no overdubbed horns. Other alternate takes are "Do The Do" and "Highway 49" that seems a spin off from the Elmore James catalogue. "Worried About My Baby" also known as "Worried About My Baby" is an alternate take while "What A Woman" also known as "Commit A Crime" is here featured with an alternate mix. Finally "Wang Dang Doodle" closes this short but beautiful collection with   a longer alternate version of another classic Willie Dixon masterpiece.
