Could Howlin Wolf's The Real Folk Blues get somewhere in the lower regions of the list? It was quite popular for a blues record and Killing Floor was one of his most popular songs.

You bought his album less than one week ago according to the "Last Album You Bought" thread. :eh:

I said I listen to his music religiously. Not this album. I had heard the majority of the songs on that album previously, but just wanted to actually get a real studio album from him.
What purpose was there to try to disprove what I said? :eh:

It made no sense. That's why. And it is odd to say you listen to his music religiously but not this album because his discography is composed of two albums and a bunch of random live albums and other fluff.
