Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most
audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige
Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
Since the early 1950s, Willie Dixon has been the studio kingpin of Chicago
blues, having written, produced, and played bass on countless classics by Muddy
Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Otis Rush, Koko Taylor, and many others. Dixon has always
managed to find time away from the studio to work as a performer, slapping his
upright bass and singing his own tunes in a highly compelling, conversational
baritone. He was working the coffeehouse circuit with pianist Memphis Slim when
he cut this, his first album as a leader, in 1959. Besides his unique
interpretations of “Nervous” and “Built for Comfort,” it includes eight lesser
known compositions from Dixon’s prolific pen. It is unlike all other albums by
Dixon, as he and Slim are accompanied, not by the usual crew of Chicago blues
players, but by a group of New York mainstream jazzmen, including tenor
saxophonist Hal Ashby, guitarist Wally Richardson and drummer Gus Johnson.
