Willie Dixon - Poet Of The Blues - 2LP -

Price per Unit (stuk): €14.95


The title of this album says it all. Chess records in Chicago was the long time home of this larger than life character, without whom it would have been just another label. His classic tunes were recorded by at least dozens of other great artists, but I don't think anyone ever outdid Willie, whom I saw perform several times. "Juicehead Bartender" is one of my favorites and one tune that no one else covered I believe. He was the original rapper if you think about it. His slow delivery of down home lyrics has never been topped. He of course also did arrangements for most of Chess Records other great artists, which shows the depth of his talent. Probably the most famous stand up bass player of all time, and he played with some of Chicago's other greats, i.e. Memphis Slim, Muddy Waters, etc.. He has a number of albums out, but this is pure gold and if the only record of his was this one, you won't be missing out on the best.
