Actually the first album from Darryl Way's Wolf(sorry Progarchives; but we all make mistakes!) this 1973 effort found the former Curved Air violinist teaming up with talented Canadian bassist Dek Messecar, future Soft Machine guitarist John Etheridge and drummer Ian Mosley(who would, of course, go on join Marillion over a decade later).

One of the finest artists on the illustrious Chess label, Howlin’ Wolf shaped the blues, as this playlist of 20 of the best Howlin’ Wolf songs shows. I’ve Been Abused’ was another complaint: a story that was told in 12 lines – some of them repeated, but none the less affecting for it. Wolf’s stance was that he’d been exploited, taken for a fool, but it was going to stop right now. And when he was fighting back, he’d do it in style, as ‛Sitting On Top Of The World’ made clear. While Wolf adopted a hard-done-by attitude – and no doubt genuinely felt that way, having grown up in the depressed south – he earned a good living and was financially astute, partly thanks to the bookkeeping of his wife, Lillie. Even so, Wolf had little schooling and was effectively illiterate.
Ooh, oh tell me what the hell I've done Can I stop at one? Or have I just begun? Take out the bodies that live Oh, Lord, it gets me high I think I'm gonna get my fill Of taking lives. Oh, Lord, I don't wanna let my baby down Well I just wanna give us something one of a kind. Oh, darlin, darlin What have I done? I've been a stray from you too long And all my days have turned to darkness Hell is leaving the light on. And, ooh, oh, they'll hang me way up high God himself will drop me from the sky And let me swing a while
