Howlin' Wolf – Rocking Chair Album

A mid-60's second pressing of Howlin' Wolf's classic 'Rocking Chair' album on Chess, with the black 'chess piece' label. This was Wolf's second album, and includes his biggest hits—'The Red Rooster,' 'Wang-Dang-Doodle,' 'Spoonful,' 'Back Door Man,' 'Howlin' For My Baby' and more. Wolf's rarest lp, this is highly sought after and rarely found in this condition. The cover grades near excellent, with some light rubbing but tight seams and clean front and back. The disc grades near excellent/very good plus with some very light hairlines, but little sign of play or wear (it has no spindle marks and we'd guess the hairlines come from being stacked between other albums without a sleeve.) As essential a blues album as exists, this would sell for $750 if it was the slightly earlier black label.
