The Great Unknowns No. 11: Howlin' Wolf Burnette

Guy Stevens, Record Mirror, 31 August 1963

WHEN PYE records launched their second R & B campaign, one of the artists involved was a gentleman by the strange name of Howlin' Wolf. The disc was 'Just Like I Treat You', and although it didn't make the charts, it still managed to sell a fair old number of copies, including fans everywhere who heard this throaty exciting artist for the first time.
