This is a very enjoyable album to listen to on a long drive or on a warm summer evening, accompanied with a glass of wine. It provides no fireworks, rather a solid and thoroughly professional rendition of some of the titles made famous by others. Jim Morrison sounds much less restrained when he sings "Back Door Man", Ten Years After are more engaging on "Spoonful", and Muddy Waters really makes "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man" rock. What Willie Dixon does in this album brings all of the above together on equal footing, and his deep, warm and husky voice is certainly something none of the others have. I don't have any of the other albums by Willie Dixon, so I can not compare this one to the others. On its own, however, I very much recommend it.
