    I love this set. Howlin' Wolf is my favorite Blues artist and I have quite a few of his recording, but this set is what I keep on my phone for regular listening. The sound quality has a very genuine real sound to it like you are there. It comes as a cloth cover hardbound book that is very well put together and has held up to regular use.
