Some of the artist files also contain original publicity stills, performance shots, negatives, and slides. These files were originally compiled by the Curatorial Department for reference in curating exhibits, but have also been used across the institution for development, marketing, publications, research, and other purposes as copyright allows. Also included in the collection are files of images with unidentified people and places, and subject-based folders containing images relevant to the work of the Curatorial Division (i.e., Artists and motorcycles). Researchers may want to view these files if a desired artist's name is not found to be listed individually.

This video features the legend himself performing eight songs live in concert and answering questions about his remarkably influential career, the ups and downs of the blues as a genre, and how his work for Chess Records revolutionized blues and rock and roll. As a songwriter and producer, the man was considered a genius. When someone wanted a hit song, they went to Dixon and played it how he said. He took big band music and Mississippi blues and melded them into something new, opening the door for Motown and others to walk in and take it even further. Mick Jagger, Robert Plant, Chuck Berry, and Eric Clapton are just a few of the artists indebted to Dixon's blues-based hollerin'. Songs include classics like "Wang Dang Doodle," "I Got The Blues," "I Just Want to Make Love to You," and more!+-+3069531585+-+3069531585Fri Mar 21 15:44:21 EDT 2014batch55393
