Mojo Workin’ Series / Blues for the next generation.

One of blues music’s greatest composers, Willie Dixon was also a strong performer. This Columbia Legacy reissue is a profile of the artist in his post-Chess Records years and is chock full of classics, many of which have been covered by rock bands as well as blues musicians: “Back Door Man,” “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “Spoonful,” “I Ain’t Superstitious,” “I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man” … the list goes on. For all of his achievements as a composer and performer, relatively little of Dixon’s recorded work is available, particularly from his later years. Poet of the Blues is an excellent introduction as well as a chance to hear many of these classic songs in their original incarnations. –Genevieve Williams
