    William James Willie Dixon (July 1, 1915 – January 29, 1992) was an American blues musician, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and record producer. He was proficient in playing both the upright bass and the guitar and was a capable singer, but he is perhaps best known as one of the most prolific songwriters of his time. Next to Muddy Waters, Dixon is recognized as the most influential person in shaping the post–World War II sound of the Chicago blues. Dixon's songs have been recorded by countless musicians in many genres as well as by various ensembles in which he participated. A short list of his most famous compositions includes Hoochie Coochie Man, I Just Want to Make Love to You, Little Red Rooster, My Babe, Spoonful, and You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover. These songs were written during the peak years of Chess Records, from 1950 to 1965, and were performed by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, and Bo Diddley; they influenced a generation of musicians worldwide. Dixon also was an important link between the blues and rock and roll, working with Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley in the late 1950s. His songs have been covered by some of the biggest artists of more recent times, such as Cream, Jeff Beck, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Steppenwolf, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix. The debut albums by the first six of those artists all feature at least one of his songs, a measure of his influence on rock music. He received a Grammy Award and was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

    59:44

    Willie Dixon (né le 1er juillet 1915 et mort le 29 janvier 1992) était un musicien, contrebassiste, compositeur, arrangeur, producteur et chanteur de blues américain. Son influence artistique chez Chess Records, autant que son rôle au début de la carrière de Chuck Berry et de Bo Diddley, ont été prépondérants. Par ses multiples talents, il a largement contribué à façonner une bonne partie du Chicago blues de l'immédiate après-guerre.
    Il est né William James Dixon à Vicksburg dans le Mississippi. Au cours de son enfance, il se frotte à plusieurs reprises avec la justice ce qui l'amène à quitter le Mississippi pour Chicago en auto-stop.
    Là bas, grâce à sa carrure imposante, il devient boxeur et parvient même à gagner le titre Golden Gloves dans la catégorie poids-lourd en 1936. Parallèlement à cela, Dixon apprend la contrebasse mais ses progrès sont arrêtés quand il résiste à un recrutement pour la Seconde Guerre mondiale et est emprisonné pour dix mois.
    Après la guerre, il retrouve son professeur, Leonard Baby Doo Caston, avec qui il forme le Big Three Trio et enregistre pour Columbia Records. Dans la foulée, Dixon signe pour Chess Records comme musicien de studio jusqu'en 1951 où il devient employé à plein temps du label. Ses relations avec Chess sont alors parfois tendues mais il laisse son empreinte sur le label de 1948 au début des années 1960.
    Dans les années 1970 et 1980, sa santé se détériore en grande partie à cause du diabète qu'il avait depuis plusieurs années et qui le contraindra par la suite à être amputé d'une jambe. Il remporte un Grammy Award du Meilleur disque de Blues traditionnel en 1989. C'est également à cette époque que Willie Dixon est promu au Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
    Willie Dixon meurt à la suite d'une défaillance cardiaque à Burbank en Californie le 29 janvier 1992 et est enterré au Burr Oak Cemetery à Alsip dans l'Illinois.
    L'influence de ses années chez Chess reste prodigieuse. Il ira même jusqu'à affirmer une fois I am the blues (je suis le blues). Il est en effet une des influences majeures du genre que ce soit à travers son écriture originale et variée, ses performances scéniques, ses enregistrements ou son vaste travail de production.
    Son jeu de contrebasse était de grande qualité. On peut l'entendre par exemple sur les premiers enregistrements de Chuck Berry qui font le lien entre le blues et la naissance du rock 'n' roll.
    Le génie de Dixon en tant que compositeur, tient dans sa capacité à transformer des thèmes musicaux archaïques du sud en des arrangements contemporains. Cela donne des chansons avec des fondations de blues et la légèreté de la musique pop. Les groupes de rhythm and blues britanniques des années 1960 par exemple se sont beaucoup inspirés du catalogue de chansons de Dixon.
    Willie Dixon reste célèbre pour son travail comme producteur pour Chess Records à Chicago et est considéré comme un des personnages clés dans la création du Chicago blues. Il travailla notamment avec Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Koko Taylor, Little Milton, Eddie Boyd, Jimmy Witherspoon, Lowell Fulson, Willie Mabon et Memphis Slim.
    Par la suite, un de ses grands succès fut de réunir de célèbres musiciens de blues pour créer des ensembles de Chicago blues qu'il envoyait tourner en Europe.

    William James Willie Dixon (July 1, 1915 – January 29, 1992) was an American blues musician, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and record producer. A Grammy Award winner who was proficient on both the upright bass and the guitar and as a vocalist, he is perhaps best known as one of the most prolific songwriters of his time. Next to Muddy Waters, Dixon is recognized as the most influential person in shaping the post–World War II sound of the Chicago blues.
    Dixon's songs have been recorded by countless musicians in many genres as well as by various ensembles in which he participated. A short list of his most famous compositions includes Hoochie Coochie Man, I Just Want to Make Love to You, Little Red Rooster, My Babe, Spoonful, and You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover. These tunes were written during the peak of Chess Records, 1950–1965, and performed by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, and Bo Diddley; they influenced a generation of musicians worldwide.
    Dixon also was an important link between the blues and rock and roll, working with Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley in the late 1950s. His songs were covered by some of the biggest artists of more recent times, such as Cream, Jeff Beck, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Steppenwolf, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix. The debut albums by the first six of those artists all feature at least one of his songs, a measure of his influence on rock music.
    Dixon was born in Vicksburg, Mississippi, on July 1, 1915. His mother, Daisy, often rhymed things she said, a habit her son imitated. At the age of seven, young Dixon became an admirer of a band that featured pianist Little Brother Montgomery. He sang his first song at Springfield Baptist Church at the age of four Dixon was first introduced to blues when he served time on prison farms in Mississippi as a young teenager. Later in his teens, he learned how to sing harmony from a local carpenter, Theo Phelps, who led a gospel quintet, the Union Jubilee Singers, in which Dixon sang bass; the group regularly performed on the Vicksburg radio station WQBC. He began adapting his poems into songs and even sold some to local music groups.
    Dixon left Mississippi for Chicago in 1936. A man of considerable stature, standing 6 and a half feet tall and weighing over 250 pounds, he took up boxing, at which he was successful, winning the Illinois State Golden Gloves Heavyweight Championship (Novice Division) in 1937. He became a professional boxer and worked briefly as Joe Louis's sparring partner, but after four fights he left boxing in a dispute with his manager over money.
    In 1939, Dixon was a founding member of the Five Breezes, with Caston, Joe Bell, Gene Gilmore and Willie Hawthorne. The group blended blues, jazz, and vocal harmonies, in the mode of the Ink Spots. Dixon's progress on the upright bass came to an abrupt halt with the advent of World War II, when he refused induction into military service as a conscientious objector and was imprisoned for ten months. He refused to go to war because he would not fight for a nation in which institutionalized racism and racist laws were prevalent. After the war, he formed a group named the Four Jumps of Jive. He then reunited with Caston, forming the Big Three Trio, which went on to record for Columbia Records.
    Dixon signed with Chess Records as a recording artist, but he began performing less, being more involved with administrative tasks for the label. By 1951, he was a full-time employee at Chess, where he acted as producer, talent scout, session musician and staff songwriter. He was also a producer for the Chess subsidiary Checker Records. His relationship with Chess was sometimes strained, but he stayed with the label from 1948 to the early 1960s. During this time Dixon's output and influence were prodigious. From late 1956 to early 1959, he worked in a similar capacity for Cobra Records, for which he produced early singles for Otis Rush, Magic Sam, and Buddy Guy. He later recorded for Bluesville Records. From the late 1960s until the mid-1970s, Dixon ran his own record label, Yambo Records, and two subsidiary labels, Supreme and Spoonful. He released his 1971 album, Peace?, on Yambo and also singles by McKinley Mitchell, Lucky Peterson and others.
    Dixon is considered one of the key figures in the creation of Chicago blues. He worked with Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, Joe Louis Walker, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Koko Taylor, Little Milton, Eddie Boyd, Jimmy Witherspoon, Lowell Fulson, Willie Mabon, Memphis Slim, Washboard Sam, Jimmy Rogers, Sam Lay and others.
    In December 1964, the Rolling Stones reached No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart with their cover of Dixon's Little Red Rooster.

  • Willie Dixon-Seventh son, by Ioccalice

    5:48

    William James Willie Dixon (July 1, 1915 – January 29, 1992) was an American blues musician, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and record producer.A Grammy Award winner who was proficient on both the upright bass and the guitar and as a vocalist, Dixon is perhaps best known as one of the most prolific songwriters of his time. Next to Muddy Waters, Dixon is recognized as the most influential person in shaping the post-World War II sound of the Chicago blues.
    Dixon's songs have been recorded by countless musicians in many genres as well as by various ensembles in which he participated. A short list of his most famous compositions includes Hoochie Coochie Man, I Just Want to Make Love to You, Little Red Rooster, My Babe, Spoonful, and You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover. These tunes were written during the peak of Chess Records, 1950–1965, and performed by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, and Bo Diddley; they influenced a worldwide generation of musicians.
    Dixon also was an important link between the blues and rock and roll, working with Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley in the late 1950s. His songs were covered by some of the biggest artists of more recent times, such as Bob Dylan, Cream, Jeff Beck, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones.
    --------------------------
    The Seventh Son, also recorded as Seventh Son, is a song written by Willie Dixon. It was released as a single by Willie Mabon on Chess Records in 1955. It has also been recorded by artists such as Johnny Rivers (on his album Meanwhile Back at the Whisky a Go Go), Bill Haley & His Comets (released on their 1999 greatest-hit compilation), John Mellencamp (on the 2005 reissue of Rough Harvest), Billy Crash Craddock (on the album You Better Move On), Mose Allison, Sting, Georgie Fame, Climax Blues Band, the Soul Agents, Long John Baldry, George Thorogood and, as with many of his own songs, by Willie Dixon.

    (W. Dixon)

    Everybody talkin' 'bout the seventh son
    In the whole wide world there is only one

    And I'm the one, I'm the one
    I'm the one, I'm the one
    The one they call the seventh son

    I can tell your future, it will come to pass
    I can do things to you make your heart feel glad
    Look in the sky, predict the rain
    Tell when a woman's got another man

    I'm the one, oh I'm the one
    I'm the one, I'm the one
    The one they call the seventh son

    I can talk these words that will sound so sweet
    They will even make your little heart skip a beat
    Heal the sick, raise the dead
    Make the little girls talk outta their heads

    I'm the one, oh I'm the one
    I'm the one, I'm the one
    The one they call the seventh son

    ------ lead guitar ------

    I can talk these words that will sound so sweet
    They will even make your little heart skip a beat
    Heal the sick, raise the dead
    And make the little girls talk outta their heads

    I'm the one, oh I'm the one
    I'm the one, I'm the one
    The one they call the seventh son

    I'm the one, hey, hey
    I'm the one
    Oh, I'm the one, babe
    Oooo, I'm the one
    I'm the one, I'm the one
    The one they call the seventh son
    I'm the one, I'm the one
    The one they call the seventh son

His songs have been covered by some of the biggest artists of more recent times, such as Cream, Jeff Beck, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Steppenwolf, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix. The debut albums by the first six of those artists all feature at least one of his songs, a measure of his influence on rock music. Dixon is an inductee in the Blues, Rock and Roll, and Songwriters Halls of Fame.

  • The Craddocks Do The Do written by Willie Dixon

    3:59

    Before there was any Hyperions psychobilly band... There was The Craddocks.
    My childhood friends (Joe, Jason & Paul) formed a band back in the late 1980's. It was a very short lived L.A. band. But they did record a 4 song demo tape which I recently found. Here's one of the songs on it, Do The Do written by Willie Dixon and originally sung by Howlin' Wolf. Enjoy!
