Originally released in 1969, this album has the legendary songwriter singing nine of his classics as his hand-picked Chicago band makes the changes. Dixon's nothing special, even if he is the blues personified, since his dryly charming voice lacks tonal inflections and his way with rhythm is less than fluent. Whatever glimmers of expressivity these performances have are due to harp player Carey Bell. In spite of Mobile Fidelity's exemplary sound technology, the instruments at the original session sound like mysterious things thumping on the roof in the dead of night.

„The material is superb, consisting of some of Willie Dixon's best-known songs of the 1960s, and the production is smoothly professional, but none of the performances here are likely to make you forget the hits by Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and others.“ --AllMusic Review by Bruce Eder
