I originally bought this when cassette tapes were the thing. Then, I re-bought it on CD when the little discs came out. Finally, I got the vinyl. It's definitely the way to go, but regardless of the media, this is a great album of Willie Dixon performing his own songs (most of which were made much more famous by the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Koko Taylor, etc.) with a crack band. - Roger Stolle (Cat Head)
