Re: top ten compilation
It's famous because he and Leonard Chess have a bit of an argument at
the beginning of the song and Williamson curses Chess out. Chess kept
cutting SBW off and he starts the song over about eight times before
finally being allowed to finish it.
Willie Dixon refers to it in his autobiography I AM THE BLUES,
discussing how much of the "production" on Chess singles was his, and
how much was the Chess brothers':
"[The Chess brothers] would list themselves as producers and they
never produced nothing but arguments. If you don't think so, listen to
Sonny Boy Williamson's "Little Village."
"Little Village" is on SBW's album BUMMER ROAD.
