I'M READY

Latest update on 06/12/2012

Artist: Muddy Waters
Author: Willie Dixon
Label: Chess
Year: 1954

Written when the late Willie Foster arrived too early to join Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon on tour (to New York). Willie's 'readyness' inspired the other Willie. What else can a songwriter do when he's wide awake with plenty of time?
