IT’S FINALLY HERE! THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING…
Today we received our first shipment of the Howlin’ Wolf “The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions” LP. I can not tell you how excited I was to see these. We have been working on releasing this record for over 3 years. Every single part of this release was painstakingly considered to make sure the attention to detail with this release is by far the best possible. FIRST – THE SOUND of the record is brilliant, bright, clear, quiet and I think the best representation of this music absolutely possible. RTI did an outstanding job with this 180gram black vinyl. It was remastered by all available original sources and took us 2 years to remaster. The work was done by the great Jeffrey Norman of Mockingbird Mastering in CA. SECOND – THE ART and this vinyl jacket is a piece of art. The images DO NOT do this justice. I challenge anyone to find a better jacket made. Stoughton Printing Co. did a SPECTACULAR job on this. There are layers on layers on layers of debossing effect, sequential foil stamped numbering, and the COLOR and trim POP beautifully. The jacket itself is a deluxe “Old Style” Tip-On Gatefold featuring canvas textured stock and custom clear foil overlay.
I am so proud of this very special release, and believe it is among the best vinyl reissues ever produced.
