As the title suggests this brilliant collection from Jasmine looks at the career of Willie Dixon as a successful writer, producer and singer in the Big Three Trio, Willie Dixon and the All Stars and the Lucky Three Trio.

The first 14 tracks are Willie'€™s solo recordings on Chess Records and include his only chart hit under his own name, Walking the Blues. His other singles were all exceptional records but none managed to chart however by this time he had already started having major hits with his songs and productions for Muddy Waters, Little Walter and Otis Rush and a selection of these great songs and hits make up the rest of this compilation.
