Tiger, you said you like your Blues as raw as it comes. I can listen to Hound Dog Taylor or Jimmy Reed all day. Now, when you get into the Son House kind of stuff, you're talking about a couple steps up from field recordings. Great stuff.

The deeper I get into the Blues, the more my respect grows for Willie Dixon. He didn't break out as a big star as a performer, but his fingerprints are all over the Blues. He was a starmaker, who wrote and co-wrote dozens of enduring classics. Industry giants like Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and many others owe a lot to him.
