“The blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits. It’s better keeping the roots alive, because it means better fruits from now on. The blues are the roots of all American music. As long as American music survives, so will the blues.”
--Willie Dixon

Willie Dixon was a prolific songwriter, musician and record producer who helped bridge the gap between Chicago Blues and rock and roll. During his tenure with Chess Records, contemporary bluesmen like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter recorded almost 50 Dixon songs between the three of them, while a slew of blues-influenced rockers like Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin later covered or adapted many of his songs.

Here's a collection of tracks penned by Dixon spanning psychedelic rock, country, funk, and metal...the fruits of one of the most influential musicians of the last century.
