Willie Dixon The Quiet Night Live in Chicago Jan 24 1974

A true legend here ! 
Had the chance to see him live in the early 80ies 
He delivered one of the best  shows I ever been to!

 Here's a classic, excellent sounding Blues show of the great Willie Dixon with his All Star Band, broadcasted by WXRT-FM Chicago & recorded by Bob Craig to reel. This flawless recording shows Willie & his men in top form! Dixon is among the greats of the Chicago Blues and played Bass for Muddy Waters, Howlin´Wolf, John Lee Hooker and countless others.
He also wrote some of the most well known classics of the Chicago Blues.  To name a few: Spoonfull, Little Red Rooster, Hoochie Coochie Man, Down in the Bottom, Back Door Man & Wang Dang Doodle.
He successfully took many to court in the 80ie, fighting for the copyrights to his material ( included Led Zeppelin for Whole lotta love and Bring it on home)
