“THE SUPER SUPER BLUES BAND” Checker Records HOWLIN WOLF! MUDDY WATERS! BO DIDDLEY! A Mount Rushmore of Blues Legends! In early 1967, Chess Records decided to shore up its fortunes by placing three of its aging stars in the studio to record together. Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Little Walter played off each other on the session that would result in the Super Blues album which, in turn, would sell enough copies to keep the ball rolling and merit a second all-star session.
Later that year, Waters and Diddley were joined in the studio by the great Howlin’ Wolf who replaced the ailing Little Walter, for a similar blues jam session. With a top-notch band that included guitarists Hubert Sumlin and Buddy Guy (who also played bass), pianist Otis Spann, and drummer Clifton James, the trio of Chess legends laid down the songs that would become The Super Super Blues Band album.
