The Life I Love
Delmark DE 805
With Louis Myers, Dave Myers, Mac Simmons and Big Moose Walker! Blues
vocalist Willie Buck was born in 1937 in the small town of Houston, Mississippi.
Willie performed on what became known as the "Chittlin Circuit" bouncing
between Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, North & South Carolina, Tennessee
and Texas. Shortly after developing his reputation, Willie migrated to Chicago
in 1954 where he truly immersed himself in the Chicago Blues scene and became
a real force on "Maxwell Street". Willie was inducted into the Blues Hall
of Fame in Chicago in the summer of 2004. The Life I Love
was recorded in 1982 and was issued then in a very limited edition LP. It
appears on CD for the first time now and features previously unissued live
tracks totaling 65 minutes of genuine Chicago blues.
