Wolf: "The Howlin' Wolf Anthology"
[Hubert Sumlin] grew up near West Memphis,
Arkansas, briefly hooking up with another Young Lion
with a rosy future, harpist James Cotton, before receiving
a summons from the mighty [Howlin']
Wolf to join him in Chicago in 1954. Sumlin
learned his craft nightly on the bandstand behind Wolf,
his confidence growing as he graduated from rhythm guitar
duties to lead.
By the dawn of the '60s, Sumlin's slashing axe was a
prominent component on the great majority of Wolf's
waxings, including "Wang Dang Doodle," "Shake
for Me," "Hidden Charms" (boasting perhaps
Sumlin's greatest recorded solo), "Three Hundred
Pounds of Joy," and "Killing Floor."

Moreland: "Give It To Get It"
blues/rock singer, guitarist, and harmonica player. Part
Cherokee Indian, Ace Moreland has cut two rocking discs
at Bob Greenlee's Florida studios. Sizzlin' Hot, issued
on King Snake in 1990, featured Edgar Winter on alto sax,
while I'm a Damn Good Time, Moreland's 1992 follow-up,
was released on Ichiban.
Following 1996's Keepin' a Secret, Moreland spent the
remainder of the decade out of the studio, finally returning
in mid-2000 with Give It to Get It."
