"1959's Moanin' in the Moonlight was Howlin' Wolf's first long-playing album for the Chicago-based Chess label. It was a compilation of previously released singles spanning an eight year period (from 1951-1958), beginning with his first single--1951's 'How Many More Years'/'Moanin' At Midnight' -- which immediately shot to the top of the R&B charts, all the way through to 1958's 'Moanin' for My Baby'. During the 1950s, the Wolf had two more top 10 hits, 'Smokestack Lightnin'' (perhaps his single most influential song) and 'I Asked For Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)', also featured here."
