A steal

As a casual blues fan, I was mostly familiar with Willie Dixon's music through Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones and other artists who covered his tunes. Some reviewers say that artists such as Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf recorded the definitive versions of many of Dixon's songs. But I'm judging this album on its own terms. There are so many classics here, testimony to Dixon's stature as one of the greatest blues artists of all time. Even if you prefer other versions of "Seventh Son," "Evil," Killing Floor" and "I Just Want to Make Love to You," the versions here are killers. Dixon has his own unique voice. Yes, there are low-down dirty blues a-plenty here. But there's also good-natured joyful quality to songs such as "All the Time," "My Babe," and "When the Lights Go Out." I can't remember the last time an album made me smile so much. There are 46 blues treasures here for a paltry $9.99. This isn't a deal; it's a steal. Buy it.
