JOHN CAMPBELL HOWLIN' MERCY Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
Howlin' Mercy is the third album by American slide blues guitarist, singer and songwriter John Campbell. Born in 1952 he started to play Delta blues at an early age, listening to and influenced by his peers like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Lightnin' Hopinks. He performed in clubs in Texas and New Orleans before settling down in New York. It was in New York that his live performance came to fruition which led to his signing with Elektra Records in 1991.

This album was made before his untimely death due to heart failure in 1993 and contains a bluesified Led Zeppelin cover "When The Levee Breaks".

Additionally songs like "Firin' Line", "Written In Stone" "Down In The Hole" (written by Tom Waits) and "Wolf Among The Lambs" are proof of Campbell's roots playing the blues.

"Howlin Mercy" was produced by Dennis Walker, who also worked on a lot off Robert Cray's recordings.
