Koko Taylor, Willie Dixon & Buddy Guy

Today, I’m featuring the “Queen of the Blues,” the late, great Koko Taylor. I got to see her 3 times and she was the best! Of course, I had to pick a version of her signature tune, “Wang Dang Doodle.” I picked this version because Koko also gives a little history. “Wang Dang Doodle” was written for Koko Taylor by Willie Dixon and Buddy Guy plays guitar on the original recording! Both of them join Koko on this performance. Buddy Guy’s solo in the middle is vintage Buddy!
