Live In Chicago, 1974 (CD)
Willie Dixon was an American blues musician, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and record producer. He was proficient in playing both the upright bass and the guitar, and sang with a distinctive voice, but he is perhaps best known as one of the most prolific songwriters of his time. Next to Muddy Waters, Dixon is recognized as the most influential person in shaping the post-World War II sound of the Chicago blues. Dixon's songs have been recorded by countless musicians in many genres as well as by various ensembles in which he participated. This release brought to you at mid-price is a live recording of him performing some of his best known compositions including "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Little Red Rooster", and "Spoonful". These songs were written during the peak years of Chess Records, from 1950 to 1965, and influenced a generation of musicians worldwide. Dixon was an important link between the blues and rock and roll, working with Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley in the late 1950s. His songs have been covered by some of the most successful musicians of the past sixty years including Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. Jeff Beck, Cream, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones all of whom featured at least one of his songs on their debut albums, a measure of his influence on rock music.
