AllMusic Review by

The U.K.'s Ace label pulls together 20 tracks on this all-killer-no-filler comp. There is a nice range of material from Howlin' Wolf's Memphis era. Tracks on Sings the Blues include "Ridin' in the Moonlight," "Do Me Around," "I'm the Wolf," and "Backslide Boogie," to name a few. This was an innovative and rough-and-tumble era for Wolf and his band, and the music here makes it come to life; it is proof-positive of Wolf's enduring stature as a blues icon.
