Les groupes de rock ont largement puisé dans le blues originel, celui du prolétariat noir américain, qui traverse toute la première moitié du XXème siècle jusqu'à, en gros, la fin des années 60.

La contribution de Willie Dixon est immense.

 

 

Dans cet album, sommet de l'iceberg de son influence sur le blues, Willie Dixon reprend 9 de ses plus grands classiques écrits à différentes époques pour d'autres, comme Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush ou Muddy Waters.

Auteur, compositeur, arrangeur brillant et doué, il est un de ceux qui a fait l'évolution du blues des années 40 et jusqu'aux années 80.

Comme à d'autres bluesman de légende, le rock lui doit beaucoup comme on peut en juger, par exemple,  à travers les covers des titres de cet album par les plus grands.
