Willie Dixon has to be the most important composer of the modern blues era. He was also the most prolific. As staff producer and bass player for Chess Records, he was responsible for writing, playing, and production on all the classic Chess material.
This collection finds Willie and the Chicago All-Stars cooking on some of his songs made famous by Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Led Zeppelin, Cream and Jimi Hendrix, just to name a few, proving he is the blues!
I have been listening to this release ever since it first came out on LP and I still have trouble taking it out of the CD player. It is certainly one of Willie’s best outings from the latter half of his career and you need it if you don’t already have it!
