Happy birthday to the Hoochie Coochie Man, Willie Dixon

Check out the tunes attributed to Willie Dixon that are now accepted standards of the Blues and Rock and Roll. Hoochie Coochie Man, Got My Mojo Workin’, My Babe, Spoonful AND Little Red Rooster (both of which are essential tracks in Howlin’ Wolf’s discography, as well), You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover, I Just Want To Make Love To You, Bring It On Home, Wang Dang Doodle. An inescapably massive influence.

A Willie penned tune, on which he plays bass here. Covered by everybody, everywhere
