180 gram vinyl version!Entire genres of music would look and soundvastly different if not for the contributions ofVicksburg, Mississippi's Willie Dixon. A writer ofsongs such as "Hoochie Coochie Man","Spoonful", and "My Babe", among so manyothers, Dixon's songs have gone on to becomestandards of blues music, after being covered bylegends such as Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf,and Little Walter, while these same songs servedas inspirational templates for the evolution of rockand roll music. Along with Muddy Waters, Dixon isto this day considered one of the most influentialfigures to the development of the post-World WarII music scene.Dixon originally began as a performer, but as hiscareer as a songwriter and session musician tookoff he performed less and less, working behindthe scenes more frequently. In 1970 however, heentered the studios to record a selection of hisown tunes. The end result was titled I Am TheBlues, and consisted of songs written during histime as a staff-writer with Chess Records,previously performed by the likes of Waters,Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush, and Willie Mabon. Dixonwas joined by a solid lineup of seasoned sessionveterans, many of whom had performed assidemen for the same singers he'd written for. Aremarkable collection of new renditions of classicsongs, straight from the original source.
