Spoonful - Willie Dixon


"Spoonful" is a blues standard written by Willie Dixon and first recorded in 1960 by Howlin' Wolf. It is loosely based on "A Spoonful Blues", a song recorded in 1929 by Charley Patton (Paramount 12869), itself related to "All I Want Is A Spoonful," a 1925 recording by Papa Charlie Jackson, and Luke Jordan's Cocaine Blues (1927). "Spoonful" has been interpreted and recorded by a variety of artists. Wolf's "Spoonful" has been acknowledged by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rolling Stone magazine, and the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame.
