Description

Deluxe 6-panel Digipak with comprehensive booklet and updated liner notes. The sly, insinuating vocals and chunky piano style of the great Willie Mabon won the hearts of many R&B fans during the '50s and '60s. Mabon was already well grounded in blues tradition from his Memphis upbringing when he hit Chicago in the '40s. His salty Chess winners "I Don't Know," "I'm Mad," and "Poison Ivy" established the pianist as a genuine Chicago blues force, but he also evolved as an R&B hitmaker at the dawn of rock & roll. This collector's CD release includes all of the singles he made, between 1952 and 1963, for different labels such as Chess, Formal, and US Records. These wonderful remastered tracks mark Mabon's finest efforts taped during his heyday and constitute the backbone of his important legacy. Willie Mabon, vocals and piano, plus: Herbert Robertson (tenor sax), Harold Ashby (alto sax), Paul King (trumpet), Lacy Gibson (guitar), Bill Anderson, Jack Myers (bass), Billy Emerson (organ), Oliver Coleman, Al Duncan (drums), among others. Recorded in Chicago, Illinois, 1952-1963.
