This album of gems was released in 1995. It’s a collection of songs that are remarkable. Although, many of them I have already heard from Chuck Berry to Muddy Waters to the Doors and George Thorogood. Why have I heard them from all of these other performers? That’s because Willie Dixon wrote them. Many of them were hits.
There are two really good songs on here that left me speechless. The first is “Dustin’ Off The Bass.” This song along showcases how talented Willie Dixon was on the stand up bass. If you think his song “Bassology” is amazing, I think you’ll fall in love with the bass guitars on this track. This song alone, almost sounds as if Les Claypool wrote it. Which I bet he could’ve. That’s how good it is. Instead, this style of bass may have influenced Les instead. The other song is “Walking The Blues.” This song is more or less a spoken word to the sound of footsteps to the sound of Blues.
The rest of the songs are treasures. So, set back, get ready, and jam out or relax. I think you’ll be doing both. The only downside is, I wish I could hear these songs are they were recorded originally, and not remastered. I think that helps to loose the rawness of the music.
