3 CD set from 60's blues band on the famous Blue Horizon label . The band included Christine Perfect (who married John McVie and joined Fleetwood Mac) & Stan Webb. All tracks restored & remastered by Blue Horizon founder Mike Vernon, with previously unreleased material, detailed liner notes & new photos. BMG. 2006.
Based on Irish writer Roddy Doyle's novel and lovingly directed with admirable restraint by the sometimes bombastic Alan Parker, this quirky 1991 tribute to the enduring and universal power of American R&B took some cynical criticism for its reliance on Baby Boomer-era classics such as "Mustang Sally," "Take Me to the River," and "In the Midnight Hour." But that sword cuts two ways: by casting a motley crew of real musicians, including the guts 'n' gravel-voiced young vocalist Andrew Strong, Parker didn't have to do much coaxing to reveal the obvious respect and affection his players have for this music. The material may not be fresh, but the love with which it's played is timeless. --Jerry McCulley
Recorded live in concert, the legendary Willie Dixon shows why he has been such a huge influence on generations of musicians. Mick Jagger, Robert Plant, Chuck Berry and Eric Clapton are just a few of the names who owe a sizeable amount of gratitude to Dixon's blues-based hollerin'. Songs include "Wang Dang Doodle," "I Got The blues," "I Just Want to Make Love to You" and more!
