Title: Willie Dixon Story / Various
Label: Proper Box UK

2012 four CD box set. When Willie Dixon wrote his autobiography he elected to name it 'I Am the Blues'. Any other person claiming such a title would be thrown to the wolves but with Willie Dixon you just can't argue with his claim. The songs he wrote, artists he nurtured, his session work, as well as his vital role as a the general Mr. Fix-it for both Chess Records and Cobra Records, render him as not just one of the most important figures in the history of Blues but as a key component to the make-up of modern popular music in general. This four disc box set focuses on this legend with individual discs given over to Dixon as a Performer, the Session Man, the Songwriter and the Record Company Man. 100 tracks featuring Dixon along with the likes of Buddy Guy, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush and many more. All the hallmarks are here, booklet with story, discographical information, rare photos and remastered recordings. Proper.
