In 1970, Willie Dixon released an album entitled I AM THE BLUES. It was a brash claim, but if anyone in blues history could make it, it was Dixon. Over the course of his career, he penned a suitcase full of tunes that defined Chicago blues, easily the most influential strand of the blues in the post-war era.
This anthology collects several of his best known songs, in versions from the aforementioned I AM THE BLUES ALBUM, along with some lesser-known material that he recorded in the late '40s with his band the Big 3 Trio. Some of it--particularly instrumentals like "Big 3 Stomp" and "O.C. Bounce"--is reminiscent of what Nat "King" Cole was doing at the time, and is considerably jazzier than you might expect.
