Click images to enlargeDescription 45's-Hear it!
Condition: Visual VG- to G+
Some gloss remains; no feelable scratches; no repeat tic scratches. No skips or other problems.
Short soundbites of not-so-great fidelity recorded from my smartphone with no equalization or filtering. Music is well above surface noise and improves as record progresses.
Recorded 10/2/51 in Memphis Sun studio with Sam Phillips at the controls.
12-1-51 Billboard release notes read:
Crying At Daybreak-Trick beat and Wolf's howl. Southern Blues style should stack up a worthy item for The Deep South market.
Passing By Blues-Fine slow Blues is warbled with an earthy quality by the Wolf and sports a top notch Blues harmonica.
On 45 this is one of the Postwar Blues grails. This is Wolf's first 45 issue and from a time when very few 45's were being pressed by independents. Only one internet transaction reported and that was in 2006. Crying is an early genesis of Smokestack Lightning.
