Willie Dixon not only wrote songs majority of which later became Blues standards, he is not only the person considered by many "Poet of the Blues", he was also one of the few who knew how to play that music, how to present that music to the audience, one of the great arrangers, and this is felt in every tune here. Willie Dixon’s playing and singing comes from the bottoms of Mississippi River. Although recorded legacy of Mr. Dixon is rich and of top standards, inimitable and imperishable like the waters of the ocean.
With some fantastic piano work by Lafayette Leake, one of the most underrated artists in Blues history, with Carey Bell’s tornado-like harp blowing, and solid contribution from young Buster Benton, this musical outing could be considered the work constituting international Blues legacy.
This album is situated in a different dimension where usual categories could not be used. Just absorb it, there is so few of such high-quality music left. ~Dimitri
