REVIEW: If there had been no Willie Dixon, Chess Records wouldn’t have been as mighty a force as it was in shaping the great post-war blues explosion and in helping to build the foundation of rock’n’roll and a lot of Led Zepplin fans would still have their full hearing. Willie Dixon is the man who changed the style of the blues. As a songwriter and producer, the man was a Genius. If you wanted a hit song you went to Willie Dixon. Played it like he said play it and sing it like he said sing it and you damn near always had a hit. Willie Dixon taught bass players how to rock’n’roll. He took his band music and Mississippi blues and melded them into something new, opening the door for Motown and others to walk in and take it even further.
