The Real Folk Blues is a series of blues albums released between 1965 and 1967 by Chess Records, later reissued MCA Records. Each album in the series highlighted the music of one major Chess artist, including John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Sonny Boy Williamson II. The series, overseen by Marshall Chess, was a reaction to the increasing audience for the blues following the British Invasion. Companion discs, titled More Real Folk Blues, were released for many of the artists.

The Real Folk Blues is a song recorded by the Seatbelts. It is sung by Mai Yamane and is the ending song for almost every session of Cowboy Bebop except for Jupiter Jazz Part 2 and The Real Folk Blues Part 2, which have Space Lion and Blue as ending songs respectively. This song was included on the mini-album Vitaminless as the opening track, and although "The Real Folk Blues" is sung in English at the beginning of each chorus, it is one of the very few song to be sung entirely in Japanese.

In the mid-'60s, Chess Records released a great series of compilations of '40s and '50s singles by some of its best blues artists, all of them called The Real Folk Blues. The Howlin' Wolf entry is possibly the best of the batch, and one of the best introductions to this mercurial electric bluesman. Opening with the savage "Killing Floor," the album doesn't let up in intensity, and it happily focuses on Wolf's less-anthologized sides, which gives the album a freshness a lot of blues compilations lack

Great Howlin' Wolf album. 1966's The Real Folk Blues, recorded in the early to mid 1960s features the larger than life growling voice and riffs, as well as the monster swagger of those amazing earlier recordings and the fact that Wolf is writing all of his own material instead of recording Willie Dixon& songs subtracts little quality. Still, this is second rate Howlin'' Wolf when compared to those recordings. The newly added horn section, which adds little and removing much of the Wolf's impeccable grit, is the main reason
