Big Head Blues Club - Songs of Willie Dixon

Big Head Todd has a brand new album “Way Down Inside”.

BHT are joined on tour by the same blues legends that are featured on the album. This includes Mud Morganfield, Billy Branch, Ronnie Baker Brooks, and Erica Brown all collaborating to play the songs of Willie Dixon. So it's a little late to make the tour, it's nearly over but I feel compelled to still post. I went to the Denver show and it was pure joy. If you can get to one of these final dates, do it.

Big Head Todd and the Monsters clearly have a love and respect for those old blues that birthed so many great genres. Mud Morganfield will freak you out when he opens his mouth to sing, it's like his father is channeled through him. And I have a particular like for the playing of Ronnie Baker Brooks, his depth and touch are rare and not to be missed in a live setting.

Ronnie Baker Brooks takes the lead and vocals on this beauty and drew a standing ovation in the middle of the Denver show. Check it.
